Install Raspian on RasPis.
Download software from BitScope (http://www.bitscope.com/software/)and install at least DSO, Logic, Chart and Meter on MASTER RasPi.
Download and install at least "BitScope Server" on SLAVE0 and SLAVE1.
Connect MASTER to monitor/mouse/keyboard and to the network.
Connect SLAVE0 and SLAVE1 to network and note IP addresses. (The easy way is to connect each to the monitor and type at the command prompt.)
On a terminal window on MASTER, attempt connecting via SSH to each of the SLAVE computers (insert appropriate IP address):
$ ssh firstname.lastname@example.org.XXX.XXX
Ensure that the BitScope server program is working. Type (while you are connected to SLAVE0:
$ bitscope-server -v
which starts BitScope server on the SLAVE computer (in verbose mode), which waits for network connections and allows access to the BitScopes connected to SLAVEN over the network. To exit BitScope Server, hit <ENTER> then 'y.'
Navigate to "/etc/bitscope/bitserve.prb" and modify it, if necessary, to read:
USB:/dev/ttyUSB0 USB:/dev/ttyUSB1 USB:/dev/ttyUSB2 USB:/dev/ttyUSB3
This code tells the BitScope software to connect to the BitScopes in this order.
On MASTER, modify "/home/pi/.config/bitscope/bitscope.prb" to read:
(replace these IP with your correct SLAVE IP addresses) which tells the MASTER BitScope programs to look for BitScopes on SLAVE0 first then on SLAVE1.
If all this is successful, the RasPis are ready. Advanced users can share RSA keys between the RasPis to prevent having to type in "raspberry" all the time, or include interesting shortcuts for SSH to SLAVEN by using an alias in MASTER's ".bashrc" file. I did something like:
alias sshslave0="ssh email@example.com" alias sshslave1="ssh firstname.lastname@example.org"
this prevents having to type in the IP address all the time. Also, the program 'tmux' can be very useful, since you can start a session on a remote computer (SLAVE0), begin a program running (bitscope-server) and then detach the session to go back to MASTER. tmux keeps the session running on SLAVE0, even though you aren't specifically logged in. (Learn more about tmux: https://leanpub.com/the-tao-of-tmux/read.)
Also, you will likely want to change the hostname for each of the RasPis so the command prompt will tell you where you are rather than "pi@raspberrypi."
Connect the BitScopes to the SLAVE computers. Note the USB connection numbers. In this image, USB0 is the upper left, USB1 is below it, USB2 is upper right.
3Test Connection to BitScope from MASTER
On MASTER, SSH to SLAVE0, and start bitscope-server.
pi@bitscopeSLAVE0 ~ $ bitscope-server -v
Start BitScopeDSO on MASTER, click "SETUP" in the DSO window. Ensure that the IP addresses you typed in "/home/pi/.config/bitscope.prb." If not, then choose "ETHERNET" in the drop-down and type the IP address of SLAVE0 into the box next to it.
Click "POWER" to turn on the scope. If a connection is successful over the network, the command line (that you left open from above) will show a connection from the MASTER's IP, and you'll see a yellow 'trace' from CHA on one of the BitScopes attached to SLAVE0, and the LEDs on the front of one of the BitScopes (hopefully the one plugged into USB0) will be blinking.
