Can you please copy a new microSD card? We need to have a clear starting point.
When you put the card into the Raspberry Pi and you start it up with a monitor and a keyboard connected then you will see the enlarging of the MoodleBox partition and then a reboot. The monitor should show everything and all things should have an [OK] at the beginning of the line. Yes, one thing has a [FAILED] … it's dnsmasq … I don't know why but it seems to be normal.
You will get the moodlebox login at the bottom. Okay, when the MoodleBox starts for the first time the sometimes I get some line after the login. The you can press enter twice without any other input and the login is in the last line. Login with the user moodlebox and the password Moodlebox4$.
Type ifconfig and you will see four network devices and their ip addresses.
lo is the localhost with 127.0.0.1
uap0 is the wifi with 10.0.0.1
eth0 is the lan. If it has a connection to your router it should have a dynamic ip from the router.
wlan0 has no IP address. wlan0 can be configured later to connect to the internet without lan.
If you want to connect with your notebook via lan you have to connect to your router with a second lan cable. If you disconnect the cable from the Moodlebox to the router then the dynamic IP address of the Moodlebox is lost. And you should disable your wifi modul of the notebook because you should only use one connection with only one ip address. Now you can ping your MoodleBox from the notebook with ping 192.168.1.100 …. take the ip address which is shown for eth0 when you asked for ipconfig.
If you want to get the Moodle web site on your Notebook you must add the following line at the end the file /etc/hosts.
192.168.1.100 moodlebox.home moodlebox
Do not change anything else without adding the line. Take the dynamic ip address for eth0 you got with ipconfig on the MoodleBox. Now you can ping your MoodleBox again. All three input should get the same result … the ping should answer. Does this work for you?
And you can take the browser on your notebook and enter the url http://moodlebox.home/ …. be sure to write http and not https and set the slash at the end. The slash at the end stops connecting to a search engine like Google. The MoodleBox web site should be shown. Does this work for you?
The next step could be to connect your smartphone via wifi to the MoodleBox. Please switch off your mobile provider connection. Connect your smartphone to the MoodelBox wifi and check the connection settings. The ip address of the smartphone should be 10.0.0.x where x is a number from 2 to 254. The network mask should be 255.255.255.0 and the router ip address should be 10.0.0.1. Does this work for you?
Now you can take the browser on your smartphone and enter the url http://moodlebox.home/ …. be sure to write http and not https and set the slash at the end … the same you did on the notebook. Does this work for you?
