Re: OpenVPN performance degrades over time

It is POSSIBLE the issue could be related to both log file writing and associated wear on the SD card itself. Have you tried a new SD card as opposed to continually reflashing the same card..? Assuming that log writing is an issue, one possible way around this would be create a RAM disk on boot and ...

Re: Raspberry Pi online security, remote access, kodi etc

PiVPN is just a simplification overall to the OpenVPN environment, once installed and if you live and die by the CLI you can customise your requirements to your hearts content though OpenVPN.

Re: which raspberry pi should I get

If you want something of the size of a smartwatch then the final product would have to be of the size of the Zero or Zero W. Size comparison image attached. (You didn't mention how you would output the video/photo's but I am making the assumption that t would be via BT or WiFi. If you are going to s...

Re: (My) Raspberry Pi Zero W has unacceptably low WiFi power

"Concern trolling".... hardly. "the action or practice of disingenuously expressing concern about an issue in order to undermine or derail genuine discussion" I have a product that I bought based on it's pedigree. and have used the Pi range for the last 3 years in its various incarnations. As such, ...

Re: Raspberry Pi online security, remote access, kodi etc

I have used PiVPN and it is probably the easiest setup for firing up an OpenVPN server, 1 script, a few questions and the setup is completed (key generation can take a fair lengthy time....)

Install went OK however when I first fired it up even though I have 3 Wi-Fi AP connections in the house (cable modem plus two Powerline repeaters) and on my laptop I see between 12 and 15 loca...
