Hi everyone,

I'm new to Puppy Linux but I wanted to share the following packages which enabled me to get vpnc up and running (I use vpnc with vncviewer to access my work machine from home).

There are three packages that need to be installed. The libraries are installed to /usr/local/lib and the executable to /usr/local/sbin. If you don't change your paths then you need to launch the executable like this:

% LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/usr/local/lib /usr/local/sbin/vpnc

These files were compiled and tested with 2.16.1. Of course your mileage may vary Smile The vpnc installation will complain about missing libraries but don't worry about that.

My current setup is 2.16.1 + TrueCrypt + vpnc + vim

Thank you for putting this together. It works great for me in Puppy 4.

Here is a link to help other people get this configured easily for the final steps in setting up the profile:

Sub_title: vpnc: relocation error


I've installed the pet as well as the openssl pet available with racy pup and I'm getting stuck with the error below

# vpnc
vpnc: /usr/lib/libcrypto.so.0.9.8: no version information available (required by vpnc)
Enter password for xxxxx@yyyy.zzzz.com:
vpnc: relocation error: vpnc: symbol gcry_cipher_setkey, version GCRYPT_1.2 not defined in file libgcrypt.so.11 with link time reference

I am not taking issue with this thread. This is a very clearly written.

But, would someone share if the RDP Pet in Puppy doesn't already do this (and with no setup need)?

Just curious

Edited 2011-03-08
I thought there was a RDP client included with all PUPs. I think I may be wron on this. Maybe I had use a PET somewhere in my past??? Now, I cannot find it in a single 32bit PUP.

Edited 2011-03-09
Found it. I did find the old copy but it is for 64bit and it is NOT fully features versus what you get from Microsoft's RDP. The Linux facility name is RDesktop. Now you must be careful to choose the version that is fully feature for LInux, Full Featured Open-source version found here.

Maybe some member would help by publishing a Puppy PET to help all in the community.

If anyone in the community can create a Puppy version, Thanks in advance.
