Not having settled on a provider yet I'm in a bit of a Catch-22 there.
The list of providers narrowed to 2, both of which only support OpenVPN.

What fast and light-weight OpenVPN client is recommended?

Many thanks,
François

Re: VPN client comparisons/recommendations

The new(ish) and very decent kid on the block is Wireguard. Those benchmarks do look impressive, although I haven't seen it offered by providers that I'm considering. You can get general clients for protocols like IPSec etc but we would need to know the server capabilities. Not having settled on a ...

Re: VPN client comparisons/recommendations

I had a quick squizz at the pivpn script and it seems aimed at OpenVPN server install?

I'm looking for a VPN client :-).

VPN client comparisons/recommendations

Hi All, I intend setting up a VPN client on my RPi but the number of clients available on Raspbian is actually quite bewildering. Although the package details mostly do indicate protocol support I can't see myself trying them all to gauge usability, performance & resource usage. I'd be grateful for ...

Re: GUIDE: Reliably wait for network when booting Jessie

You may well be right, I didn't manage to find much authoritative information at the time.

Re: Improved (=reliable) Wait for Network implementation

If empty 'hostname' output were the only issue, the ExecStart script should still start up successfully and remain in the 'while [ -z $(hostname --all-fqdns) ]' loop (while the output remains empty). The start operation timing out indicates something going wrong before that point. I'm not in a posit...

Improved (=reliable) Wait for Network implementation

The Raspbian Jessie Wait for Network setting does not reliably detect network availability which complicates mounting remote drives during boot etc. Current remedies either add similarly unreliable/wasteful delays to the boot process, or do nothing useful. By using Jessie's systemd init system, this...

GUIDE: Reliably wait for network when booting Jessie

Superseded - posted an improved implementation (controlled by Wait for Network) to the Raspbian forum . This guide uses Jessie's systemd init system to implement simple and reliable detection of network availability for mounting remote drives, etc. Guide 1.

Re: screen mirroring

Screen Stream Mirroring works well via DLNA to Kodi 17.1. Use HTTP streaming mode and MKV UPnP stream format for best performance. If you're interested in casting as opposed to mirroring, All Screen works well via either AirPlay or DLNA to Kodi 17.1. Please share if you come across any other solutio...
