On Your Computer¶
You should have Chrome Installed.
If you have a Windows computer, you need some software installed for "mdns". If you have iTunes installed, this software is already installed for you and you can skip this step. If not, install bonjour from:
Then, on the command line
REG ADD “HKLM\Software\policies\Microsoft\Windows NT\DNSClient” REG ADD “HKLM\Software\policies\Microsoft\Windows NT\DNSClient” /v ” EnableMulticast” /t REG_DWORD /d “0” /f
If you have a Linux computer, you may need to make a make change to the '/etc/nsswitch.conf'. Note: this section is not yet confirmed
In a command line, open the 'etc/nsswitch.conf' file. It probably will look like this:
# # Example configuration of GNU Name Service Switch functionality. # If you have the `glibc-doc-reference' and `info' packages installed, try: # `info libc "Name Service Switch"' for information about this file. passwd: files systemd group: files systemd shadow: files gshadow: files hosts: files mdns4_minimal [NOTFOUND=return] dns networks: files protocols: db files services: db files ethers: db files rpc: db files netgroup: nis
Notice the 'hosts:' We need to add 'mdns' to the end so that the line looks like:
hosts: files mdns4_minimal [NOTFOUND=return] dns mdns
What does this do? Why there are two "mdns" items? The second mdns is needed ot make the ".local" domain work. "The minimal versions [the mdns4_minimaal] will always deny to resolve host names that don't end in .local or addresses that aren't in the range 169.254.x.x"
Replacement for the Mobile App¶
The mobile application will not work. It expects to talk with the production servers and doesn't know how to work with the EscapePod. Instead, use Vector Explorer by Wayne Venables at:
