Re: Connecting a Pi2 to a remote site via VPN on W7 laptop?

Thanks for the info! Interesting software indeed! Here is a link to the SoftEther solution . However, it seems to require me to install a server inside the company LAN and use that as a gateway from outside. So in effect it is a different parallel VPN solution from the existing Microsoft PPTP VPN se...

Connecting a Pi2 to a remote site via VPN on W7 laptop?

I have this problem: I want to connect my RPi2B (with Raspbian Jessie) to the network at a remote site to which I can connect my Win7 laptop via PPTP VPN. I have tried various ways to install a PPTP VPN client on my Pi and connect to the remote site, but it always fails. All tutorials dealing with t...

Menu command for managing users and groups?

I cannot find anywhere to manage users and groups on my Raspbian Jessie (Nov 2015). Is there no such function available in Jessie? Most Linuxes have Administration functions on the menu for network and users and such, why not Jessie? I need to add a few users as well as create a group for these user...

Installing CVS server on Raspbian Jessie

I would like to get help in sorting out some problems I have with installing a CVS server on my RPi2B running Raspbian Jessie (Nov 2015 version). I need it in order to version the source files while I develop code on the Pi2. Normally I would connect via VPN to the company CVS server, but I cannot g...

Re: How to enable, start and stop a service in Jessie?

I went ahead and used the commands from the AdaFruit tutorial (towards the end) to make the hostapd run as a service. But it did not work at once, I had to try it again a few times and then it came on line. This is what I did: sudo service hostapd start sudo service isc-dhcp-server start sudo update...

How to enable, start and stop a service in Jessie?

I am setting up a WiFi AP on an RPi2B running Raspbian Jessie. The tutorials are OK so far but now I have come to the end and one item remains: Getting the two services running on boot. In the tutorials for Wheezy they say that I should do this: sudo service hostapd start sudo service isc-dhcp-serve...

I guess I have to revisit the AdaFruit guide for the DHCP setup.... It might be that the service is not started or something like that.

Re: How to make a Pi2 a WiFi AP for local network

Hi,
I created a new thread in the Raspbian subforum to ask about the driver.
In this I got some replies that led to a solution regarding the hostapd and driver issues.
You might want to have a look there even though I am not completely done yet (DHCP is not working).

I need to know which driver is used by Jessie for the EdiMax EW-7811Un adapter.

My adapter is reported as follows in Ras...

OK, so how do I put the TCP service software programmed with Free-Pascal onto that cheap AP?
It is compiled for the ARM7 on a Pi2.
