Re: vpns and torrenting

sudo is a command to execute commands as root/super user.

Re: USB2 or USB3 sticks for RAID1 in the PI?

Honestly, you can get quality usb 3.0 sticks for a few dollars more, (i got a 3 pack of toshiba 16gb for around 15 at best buy.). Unless you are saving pennies to eat, just get the USB 3 n be done with it. If you ever have to use the if you ever use them for another application youll thank yourself....

Re: vpns and torrenting

Did you use sudo mv to try to move the file. Sound like you are not running the commands as root Also the ovpn file can be anywhere on the file systen. It does not have to be in /etc/openvpn.

Re: vpns and torrenting

Ok, it was a little tricky to get working for me
First thing when your are listing your filenames the " ls -l" command. It should show about 50 different .ovpn so my guess is thay you are not in the right directory, where you unzipped the
.ovpn files too.
