    Hi m0nKeY, it's not possible to add fonctionnality like OpenVPN on recalbox easely. If you want custom your retrogamming station with others packages, i recommand you to use a distribution like retropie based on raspbian software. Recalbox is a buildroot based software. Only necessary packages is inclued on it. And a vpn solution for a retrogamming distribution is not realy necessary :/.

  • Thanks again, I read the howto about adding packages on your own, but I wanted to ask to be sure. My know-who would be enough to add packages on my own, even though I have to learn a lot. Considering the lack of time you are right to advise me to use retropie. Greetings m0nKeY

  • Yeah, I'm an evil person. 😄 My provider uses Dual Stack Lite, so I only got a IPv6 address to reach my network. But i.e. my mobile provider only supports IPv4. So I wanted to use the rpi3, because it doesn't consume that much power and it can run 24/7, as a VPN-bridge to my network together with an IPv4->IPv6 mapping service.
