VPN client
« on: December 20, 2016, 02:58:01 AM »
Hello everyone, still messing around with TC :)
I have an old laptop that I would like to use as a thin client.
I already have a SSH/pptp server running on a machine and i would like to connect to it to open a VNC connection​.
But I can't seem to find any information on how to do that in TC. I already installed pppd from repos and tried some configuration that i searched online, but at a certain point it requires me to use pon/poff commands, which don't exist...
Any help?

---> sudo apt-get install \m/ (°-°) \m/

Do you need VPN or VNC?

I need to connect through VPN to the machine, then launch VNC to control it. Alternatively, a VNC trough SSH would also work. I don't want to open a port for VNC in my router, and this type of configuration works in my android phone...

1. Connect your ssh port like on any Linux.
2. Connect the VNC viewer to localhost's port you forwarded
The only barriers that can stop you are the ones you create yourself.
