Rainy connections from Windows7 and DebianTesting failing

Morning,

I have a working Rainy server on my home DebianTesting desktop. I have
successfully configured and synced Tomdroid on a SamsungTab3.8 (AndroidOS
4.42) to connect via wireless using a router IP:port from home. I have
successfully configured and synced my HTC One M8 (Android 4.4.4) using the
externally facing IP:port. Thus I know the Rainy server is working and can
be connected to either locally at home or when away and that my credentials
are correct.

I cannot get Tomboy on my Win7 box *at work* (where it is part of an AD
domain) or *at home* (where it is on the local domain) to connect to the
Rainy server. When I enter the IP:8800/uid/pwd URL in Tomboy, I get a
"Server not responding. Try again later" error. 

Nor can I get Tomboy on my DebianTesting work computer to connect. It *does*
successfully contact the Rainy server using the public IP, but it then says
"Authorizing in browser (Press to reset connection)" yet it never shifts to
a browser for the authorization step. When I set up both the Samsung tablet
and the HTCOneM8 Tomdroid *did* shift to a browser for the authorization
steps.

Any ideas on what I can do for these two issues?

Much thanks in advance.

Guy

Re: Syncing Notes via Fastmail.fm Servers

Thanks for the acknowledgement.  I'm sure many people will benefit from it.  Also thanks for your dedication in providing your programming services to the Tomboy community.  I was nearly a year without syncing.  I missed it every day.  I stuck with Tomboy and was very crippled when it came to my tablets, phones, and secondary computers.  I was sure something would eventually come along.

I had done some crude programming and workarounds, but it took an awful lot of manual attention to get the updated data between devices, that most of them were left with their own mostly independent copies.

It looks like your program was out a long time before I discovered it.  So my notes and comments are an effort to help spread the word that we have something now that works very seamlessly.

Kudos!

Hello L.,
To anyone having the problem that I was having, the resolution is to extract the grauphel tar file and place the grauphel folder into the apps folder of the root of the owncloud directory. This will be the directory configured in the Apache configuration files. On many distros this will be /var/www/owncloud/apps. More details can be found at: http://faq.apollo3.com/TomboySync.html
Thanks for the writeup. I've added installation instructions on the grauphel homepage and README.

Tomboy starts twice when using ubuntu unity lens

Hi List,

Since a while I'm having an issue when using unity lens for the first
time after login.  It seems to start two instances of tomboy (two
items in my indicator menu) and when I try to create a new note with
one of them it says 'cannot create new note - error 32: Broken pipe'.
After quiting both instances I can start tomboy again and then it
works correctly.
Does anyone has any idea where I could check what goes wrong?

Regards,

wimpunk.

I have no idea about that but I also think this will not solve your
problem. Rainy generates a SSL/TLS certificate if you used "https" as
protocol the first time you start it, based on the hostname that you
configured in the settings.conf file. The hostname is an integral part
of the SSL certificate, as it is required for the client to
authenticate the server. I think during the SSL cert generation, the
ciphers are chosen and cannot be modified later on through mono's
configuration.

For this scenario, you should disable SSL in rainy and use SSL in your
reverse proxy. I would recommend nginx as a reverse proxy, as I had
this succesfully running with rainy. If you disabled SSL in rainy, use
"http://*:8800" in rainy as listen url - this will make rainy listen
on ALL network devices. Maybe use firewall filtering to block access
from external devices if this is unwanted. when using the wildcard *
as listen url, Rainy will send back the hostname that was used to
access the reverse proxy back in all API responses. For this to work,
it is VERY important that you configure your reverse proxy to forward
the "Host" header to Rainy.

A possible nginx reverse proxy section could look like:

location / {
    proxy_set_header Host $host;
    proxy_pass http://localhost:8080;
}

See also this issue https://github.com/Dynalon/Rainy/issues/28 for
reverse proxy setup, and feel free to re-open the issue so we can work
on it.

See above. I attached the config that i use for rainy-demoserver
(minus password) here:

I have no idea about that.

Tomboy/Tomdroid/Rainy syncing problems with new SSL Cipher list used in Android 5.0

Hi all,

I had been running Rainy 0.5.0 for about a year.   I recently moved to a Nexus 
6 phone, with Android 5.0, and per the Android changelog docs there are 
changes to which TLS ciphers are used.  I am affected by this on my Ubuntu 
12.04 server, and I can't figure out how to control the cipher list on the 
server-side.   I really have loved Tomboy for a long time, but giving up SSH 
sync capability because it was never added to tomdroid, using these green-
behind-the-ears solutions for sync servers has been really annoying.  I've 
tried my hand at creating a solution with PHP so I can run it on more solid 
web servers, but I just haven't had time to put into it.  I just want SSH sync 
on Tomdroid!!! Anyway... My questions follow.  Below them, a quick review of 
what I've tried:

1: Has anyone run into this and found a solution?
	A: How can I control ciphers on the mono which ships with Ubuntu 12.04?
	B: How can I make Rainy listen on http://hostA:8800 and still insert 
https://hostB:8443 in the URL's in the API response? (note differing hosts AND 
protocol)

2: Has anyone successfully run Rainy behind a reverse proxy?  How did you set 
it up?

3: What is different at https://rainy-demoserver.latecrew.de/ that makes it 
work (I tested it)?

4: What solutions have others used to allow SSH sync to work through Tomdroid, 
while still allowing SSH sync to work from other linux desktops running 
Tomboy?  I emailed the list about this in the past - Everything in the past 
using file-sync on an SSH-synced folder didn't work because Tomdroid's local 
sync != Tomboy's SSH sync.

Here's what I have tried:

(Disclaimer:  I am in no way a Mono/C# developer.  Actually, I *hate* the 
mile-long list of dependencies for Mono, but I love using Tomboy more - so I 
did very little at the code-level.)  

I ran OpenSSL's s_server test server to see if the version on Ubuntu 12.04 was 
somehow not up-to-date with supported ciphers.  Tomdroid was able to connect 
and complete the SSL Handshake, so it seems to be a Mono issue (Does Mono even 
use OpenSSL library?).
I tried upgrading Mono, because apparently Mono 3.1+ allows some control over 
the ciphers - but this broke Rainy, so I reverted back.  
Next, I decided to setup a reverse proxy on the gateway ahead of the Ubuntu 
server hosting Rainy.  This was a genuinely bad idea.  FYI, It seems the 
entire design of Rainy (and to a certain respect, the API) makes this difficult 
- at least as long as there is only one variable to declare the hostname used 
to build the URL's in the API response AND the listening URL.  No form of 
trickery with proxies can get it working (Believe me, I was creative - I even 
used a pair of proxies to intercept the initial connection, and those 
resulting from URL in the API response).
I tried using HTTPS-to-HTTPS proxying, because this way I can "match" the 
URL's and the protocol with the Rainy config, but alas, Mono again - I can't 
seem to figure out where the certificate/keys are that Mono/Rainy are using, and 
I don't wish to change it, it would affect a dozen people.

Syncing Notes via Fastmail.fm Servers

All,

Is there a way to sync note via fastmail.fm servers?  I have the 15 GB 
plan and I'm already using the CalDAV for my calender and task list, and 
I want to sync my notes with  their severs.

Thank you.

Tomboy SYNC

I have two Linux computers Ubuntu 14.04 PC and Lubuntu 14.04 Laptop (also an Android Tablet).  Since the demise of Ubuntu One, I have been using Google Drive Cloud launched by google-drive-ocamlfuse ~/Gdrive at start up.

When I set up Tomboy sync.on both computers pointing to /Gdrive it appeared  to synchronise OK.  On inspection of the Gdrive folder I noticed I had two new folders 0 and 0(1)!  Apparently, each machine created its own sub-folder so that one computer cannot see the other's NOTES. 

Is there any help you can give me in using the Cloud to synchronise.

Yours Simon Bateman (aka Mr.Grumpier)

Method for importing notes from other note systems?

I moved from Outlook notes to Tomboy and had to do it by hand.

I could have automated the process, but I couldn't get a description of how the naming of the XML files in Tomboy was done. Is that documented anywhere?

Formatted links in XML

Hi,

I'm writing a tomboy note XML to HTML converter for grauphel, my sync
server.

While testing unusual cases, I found that I could style links in
Tomboy 1.15.2.

The text is "Formattest" and it got autolinked. Then I applied
highlight to the first 4 characters, monospace to the "a" and made the
"st" huge. I can still click the link in Tomboy and the correct note
opens.
The generated XML is very strange:

<highlight><link:internal>Form</link:internal></highlight><link:internal>a<monospace>tt</monospace></link:internal><link:internal>e<size:huge>st</size:huge></link:internal>

I would have expected a <link:interal> around all the tags to the end
of the word, but there are several format and link tags wildly mixed
with each other, making it very hard to reconstruct the old link.

Is that a know bug, design decision or an unfortunate turnout of the
existing code? How does tomboy find out which note is linked?

Meeting notes from Oct 17, 2014

We had a short 30 minute meeting today.
Stephen, Rashid, David and others were present.

Here’s kinda the main points from the meeting.

* See what hosted systems Rainy can be easily deployed to. Like Heroku, AWS, etc.
* Do we support online editing of Notes in Rainy? (I think so, but couldn’t remember)
* Ask Timo if he would be ok moving Rainy repo to Tomboy-Notes (github)
* SShaw will look at Notebook enhancements and Note sorting in OSX
* Rashid will continue work on iOS

Thanks everyone.
