Sub_title: makes your local server publicly visible
 

I have been using pagekite for over a year now to use my puppy as a web-server and finally made a pet out of it.

How does it work?
From the official web-site:

Quote:
the PageKite back-end configures DNS for your server and establishes communication with our global pool of front-end relays. These relays have public IP addresses and are visible on the global Internet, which makes it possible for them to accept incoming requests on your server's behalf. These requests get forwarded (proxied) over the tunnel to your server, and any replies travel back the same way.

In technical terms, it is a dynamic, tunneled reverse proxy.


It has python 2.7+ as dependencies.
I added a launch-script and Menu entry as well as a start up script in /root/Startup, which automatically starts pagekite as a daemon if there is an internet connection (to use make executable) and writes a logfile in /var/log/pagekite. This is useful if one wants to run pagekite all the time (as I do)

Also check out mailpile from the same person Smile

Sub_title: hiawatha did not start
 

I noticed a bug in the /usr/bin/kite_start file of this package. When choosing to start hiawatha and pagekite it actually only started pagekite. Below is the fixed script, just unzip, replace and make executable.
It also exited immediately when there was an error, without giving time to actually read the error message, I changed that as well
