Today in Linux news, GOG accidently marked a lot of games as free in cost after their big Linux announcement. Ubuntu 14.04.1 LTS was released today. GCC and Patrick Volkerding win awards. And finally today, Sebastian Kügler recently blogged about getting KDE Plasma working under Wayland.
I am playing with setting up a private logmein clone to manage a hand full of roaming raspberry pi boxes. Internally I have been pretty successful with openvpn + tightvnc server on the pi and apache + novnc on my internal server.
But my test server isn't accessible to the outside world, and my VPS provider refuses to provide me tun/tap support. So does anyone know of a good replacement for openvpn that doesn't require a kernel module?
I have been playing with ssh and port forwarding with only minor stability issues. But when I scale this up to hundreds of deployed devices I don't want to have to manually assign ports for each device and maintain an assignment list to avoid port forwarding conflicts.submitted by punknubbins
