That's unfortunate but I don't have sufficient VPN experience to be able 
to offer a fix (and this isn't the right place to try to thrash it out). 
However I don't see why it should be happening, the RPi- particularly 
the RPi2- is basically "just a computer" and stuff that runs on a PC 
should run happily on it- /unless/ Raspbian has fouled up NetworkManager 
(which I normally disable since it breaks various networking things that 
I want to run) or systemd configuration.

I notice that there is now a pukka Debian for the RPi2 (/not/ for the 
original RPi) and intend to investigate it because there are far too 
many services exposed by Raspbian to make it a viable platform for e.g. 
a firewall or mailserver.

As I've said repeatedly, sort out your SSH so that you can tunnel an X 
session over it. That will fix your C&P problems.
