Comparison OpenVPN and PPTP VPN on Pi

I have finally gotten my VPN installation working on a new Pi running Raspbian . Before this I had big problems to get routing working on the Pi so that the connected client could communicate via the VPN server. It seems to be caused by some special settings in RASPBMC which concern the firewall. Th...

Re: FTP on Raspbian?

No need because I could use sftp with Filezilla.

Re: FTP on Raspbian?

I tried to change the port from 21 to 22 in FileZilla and SUCCESS! It connected just fine and I could download syslog and examine it like I intended to. I wonder what service is running to accept FTP over port 22, though? How can I find out? I looked at the sub-directory names in /etc/rc2.d but noth...

FTP on Raspbian?

I have used RASPBMC for a while with XBMC and on it I have been able to connect via FileZilla on regular FTP to transfer logfiles and such. Now I have bought a second Pi to use as a VPN server for when I am going away from home. On this I have installed RASPBIAN from the January 2014 download. When ...

Re: Cannot get VPN server working....

The reason for my problems was that in recent builds of raspbmc the ...

Re: Cannot get VPN server working....

I managed to resolve the Pi disappearing act... It has used IP address 192.168.0.150 for "ages" and now it suddenly changed to 142... Had to struggle with the Pi and my DLINK router until I had set up a reservation for the Pi at 150 that actually worked. Many confirmation buttons to press until it ...

Re: Cannot get VPN server working....

Just got a hunch that I could not use handout IP addresses in the same network as the one the Pi sits on. So I changed the IP specifications as follows: 1+2) sudo nano /etc/pptpd.conf at end of file enter: localip 192.168.0.150 (IP of RPi) remoteip 192.168.10.100-109 (Range of IP to feed to clients)...

[SOLVED] Cannot get VPN server working....

I am trying to set up my Pi as a PPTP VPN server for secure connection into my home network. I have a DLINK DIR-655 router hooked to a fiber connection for 100/10 Mbit/s speed. I have set up a port forward rule on the DLINK for TCP port 1723 to the Pi IP address 192.168.0.150. And I have registered ...

Re: Power supply problem caused by charge cable

Right, I realize that the USB connector is a good selection for the reasons you state, however the cable issue is still rather a mess. Before I started cutting up the Micro-USB end I first made a small connector that fit on the P1 pin connector on the Pi board. I used pins 2 and 6 to feed the power ...

Power supply problem caused by charge cable

A few days ago I started to create a media player for my TV using the Pi (version B release 1). I used the NOOBS_v1_3_4 download on a 16 GB SanDisk class 10 SD-card. After reading directions in several places I had gotten myself a 2.1A USB charger to power the Pi. The installation had many problems ...
