Installing YalerTunnel

The first step in installing YalerTunnel is to get a domain name. You can do this for free by going to www.yaler.net and following the instructions on the website.

On the BeagleBone:

  1. Create a YalerTunnel directory:
    $ mkdir yalertunnel
    $ cd yalertunnel
    
  2. Download the YalerTunnel source:
    $ curl -LO http://hg.yaler.org/yalertunnel2/downloads/YalerTunnel2.src.tar.gz
    
  3. Unzip the source into the directory:
    $ tar xfzmv YalerTunnel2.src.tar.gz
    
  4. Configure and create the code:
    $ ./configure && make
    
  5. We can now enable either SSH or web access. If you want to have both web and SSH access, you will require two separate Yaler tunnels (domain names).
