Re: How to set up a Raspberry Pi VPN server

Hi Every One,

I have set-up a RasPi 3 as a VPN Server and it is working like a charm.

My question is : Can my real location be detected even when I am using the VPN Server, if the answer is yes then how to overcome that please.

Many thanks

Re: how to boot a P3 with a 4 To HDD

Hi All, After what I have done myself, RasPi does not have a BIOS so it needs the SD to start the boot and then it passes it to the USB Drive, either USB Key or a Hard Drive.

I have been using the RasPi as a media centre using the good old KODI which is working like a charm.

My question is: where are the temp files so that I can delete them and make more space for the OS to function better.

I would appreciate any comment at all.
