    Hi Marcus,
    I am following your VMWare Fusion + Cloudstack DevCloud setup guide and I cannot SSH to the DevCloud VM IP.

    richard$ sudo ssh root@
    ssh: connect to host port 22: Permission denied

    I also noticed I can’t ping anything from inside the VM. Can you enlighten me on the steps needed to enable networking on the DevCloud VM?

    I’ll send you an email you about this so we don’t have to go back and forth over comments so much, but I’ll make an initial response here as well.If you can’t ping the network you set up from within the VM, it seems the issue is less to do with the devcloud and more to do with the VM and Fusion’s networking. It doesn’t sound like you’re using the same network setup that the devcloud-kvm is built with (different IPs), which might make things a bit more difficult, as devcloud-kvm has static IPs. Are you following the slideshare/video from the last conference, or the devcloud-kvm wiki? If you have the pro version of VMware Fusion, I’d suggest setting up the networks to be identical to the guide and just leaving everything as-is within the vm, unless you have a specific need to change something.

    Hello, I have a Proto Pi 1.1 (branded electron14 and your name 2014) for an older model B project. Am trying to expand the previous circuit but am totally confused how this board is laid out. I need the printable board/pin layout that used to be available on your website. Tried googling but not having any luck. Can you please email me a jpg or pdf or provide current link to download? It’s a half-size proto board. Thanks!

    I know what you mean, the silk screen for the layout didn’t come out quite as I had hoped. These references were on the product page, but not accessible since they’ve sold out. I was basically breaking even on these as a hobby, and haven’t replenished stock yet, even thought I’ve got a few hundred boards in the closet waiting to be packaged and shipped.
