How to set up a personal home web server (100% free)

First step is assigning a globally known address to your home network. Remote access via Dynamic DNS makes this possible. There are many websites provide such service. I have used because my internet modem/router supports this website! You have to register in noip website and then you have to add a Host (DNS Host (A)).

Next thing is configuring your modem/router for updating the website with your Dynamic Valid IP address. For doing this you have to find DDNS (Dynamic DNS) under Network settings and enter your noip account details.

For security reason you still cannot access you computers via internet. For doing this you have to use DMZ service. First assign a static IP address for the computer that you want to use it as the  server (e.g. Then add this IP address as DMZ device.

Now you have a connected server. You can now install LAMP or WAMP.

What is Real-Time?!

When the simulation clock reaches a certain time in real-time simulation, the same amount of time must have passed in the real world.

Real-Time Windows Target™ (now Simulink Desktop Real-Time™) and xPC Target™ (now Simulink Real-Time™) are no the same!

 Simulink® Real-Time™ lets you create real-time applications from Simulink models and run them on dedicated target computer hardware connected to your physical system. It supports real-time simulation and testing, including rapid control prototyping, DSP and vision system prototyping, and hardware-in-the-loop (HIL) simulation.

 Simulink® Desktop Real-Time™ provides a real-time kernel for executing Simulink models on a Windows® or Mac laptop or desktop. It includes library blocks that connect to a range of I/O devices. You can create and tune a real-time system for rapid prototyping or hardware-in-the-loop simulation with your computer.

Simulink Real-Time provides native I/O drivers and functions for target computer hardware purchased directly from the respective hardware manufacturer, which provides backward compatibility for target applications built with xPC Target™,  Simulink Desktop Real-Time™ provides a real-time kernel for executing Simulink® models on a laptop or desktop running Windows® or Mac OS X. It includes library blocks that connect to a range of I/O devices.

Sniffing or localhost packets

Unfortunately this task is not possible in windows using SharkWire so the alternative is using RawCap. You can download it here:
