Selectively route specific IP addresses through VPN tunnel

This is a method for setting up an OpenVPN tunnel on a Raspberry Pi router device, which does not route all traffic via the VPN, but selective IP address within the LAN.

Note 1: also uses the amazing sqm-scripts for traffic shaping, to reduce bufferbloat as much as possible.

Note 2: eth0 is our internal LAN, wlan0 is our external WAN

  1. Allow packet forwarding (on reboot)

Raspberry Pi Audio Visualiser

To play music at home, I use a Raspberry Pi and Shairport-sync to receive an Airplay stream and output via a pair of USB speakers.

I wanted to sample the audio stream, display an audio visualiser on the Display-o-Tron LCD display. Additionally I wanted to display the track info, which can be read from the metadata.

Using a bit of python magic, we can tie it all together...! Watch it all in action:
