Apols for the catch-all header. In 60 days I went from XP to XP/PCLOS 2007 dualboot to Mini-Me/PCLOS dual boot with DSL in tRAM. I want to stay here!
I like PCLOS and the lighter Mini. I love DSL, especially in RAM. I also have some issues with them. One, I use Hotspots and combo ethernet/wifi at home. I need a VPN__free and simple is best.
I have been sniffed at HotSpots while using XP__some www.GRC.com
socket-closing apps, LooknStop firewall, and HotSpot Shield, [HSS], saved me. All of the above led me to Linux.
I am at one with HSS for surfing. How close can I get to Hotspot shield with a PCLOS/MiniMe/DSL VPN solution for free or nearly so? I need to not have to command line all URLs. I am NOT at one with a keyboard.
In MiniMe I cannot get Opera or Firefox from the repositories. I tried different ones and they were not there. I dont know how to install them otherwise in Linux. The MiniMe default firewall won't download for me; same with the default VPNs. I get errors, etc.
If anyone could advise on any of this I would appreciate that. I am reading the relevant posts and following the links, but I need to get something implemented that I can ive with.
