So from the title I guess you can see what I'm doing.
I got the VPN working fine with the help of a few guides on here and other places.
I set up the Samba shares as per the Linux Format RPi magazine special.
I set up 2 accounts on the RPi for my self and my friend.
both accounts have RPi access, VPN access and Samba access
I can now connect in to my RPi VPN and stream the movies I have stored on my 2TB HDD.
why do I want to do this??? I drive a truck so it's nice to have access to my personal library when I'm sat waiting.
1. Over 3g (IPhone 4s and 5) I am having trouble getting the movies to stream
2. I set my friend up with a VPN and Samaba account but once he is connected to the VPN he gets a timeout when connecting to the samba share over his wireless (IPhone 5), it connects ok over 3G but then problem 1 kicks in)
I'm currently using 100mb virgin fibre optic so I have a very nice reliable 10mb upload speed and I have 3 internet access on my IPhone so i'm not restricted by data limits.
any pushes in the right direction would be great
