Openvpn connects but cannot access LAN - Desperateview story

http://ubuntuforums.org – I have spent so much time on this. The client is my Android phone. I am able to connect to my Openvpn server running on 14.04.

re-purposing i5-750 + HD5850 box to Plex Media Serverview story

http://forums.anandtech.com – Hello all. I have a computer which I just installed Ubuntu to which has an i5-750 for the CPU and an HD5850 for the GPU. What I'd like to do is have all my media content on hard drives in this computer and then stream to Chromecast using the Plex app. Is this a pretty reasonable setup to do that with? From what I have now, other than HDD's would I need anything else to make it work? (Hardware)

Poor Internet Performance On Server Configured For NATview story

http://ubuntuforums.org – This may not actually matter but I thought I'd post anyway to see if anyone had any comments or suggestions.

[ubuntu] Attaching to Windows Serverview story

http://ubuntuforums.org – Hello Everyone, When I use the GUI (Nautilus) to attach to a remote Windows/SMB server does the server get mounted somewhere on the filesystem? For example, if I connect to a server from a Mac it will automatically mount it to /Volumes - which is really convenient if you are using command line apps or apps that don't necessarily support the desktop environment correctly. Thanks, --Dave (Hardware)
