Hello everybody,

Could we please stick to FPC related topics on this list? I don't think
that VPN connectivity and discussion about version control systems fit
this definition. Feel free to continue these discussions in the mailing
list fpc-other.

Thank you

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.
