During install fests we sometimes need to install grub on a disk that is currently not mounted on root. For example, if a system can't be booted from its hard drive, but can be booted from a live usb, we want to boot from the live usb and "repair" the hard drive by installing grub on the hard drive. Once the hard drive is "repaired," the system can be booted again from the hard drive.
The attached word doc shows a walk through of how to add a USB printer to the list of available printers in Lubuntu 13.10.
Hope it helps.

The basic idea here is to add a VPN connection to an existing residential network. The way its implemented is as an add-on to the existing network, so that the existing network doesn't need to be modified at all. Turning off VPN is simply done by shutting down the PI, no other reconfigs necessary.
