comment Openconnect problems on Ubuntu 12.04
The link doesn't seem to apply to the OP's problem at all (different VPN client, different error message). Why do you think it will solve his problems?

Did you test whether the connection actually works? What vpnc-script are you using (i had to install the vpnc package to get /etc/vpnc/vpnc-script)?

+1 for advising to use -v parameter; this can help a lot when debugging ssh problems.

Both from and to can be remote locations, e.g. scp -r admin@server:/path joe@local:/path2

@BlindFish But it doesn't have to find your local machine, because you're executing the scp from your local machine!

@BlindFish Just to make sure: you're running your commands as user joe, right?

comment SSH Navigation Confusion
@BlindFish Sorry, it's the only thing I can think of right now; I use such commands almost every day. You're sure there were no typos involved?

I just used the htop command, and sorted by memory usage.

comment How do I clean or disable the memory cache?
@izx Yes, I know. It could just be that he looks for the solution of the wrong problem. The kernel is smart enough not to fill up memory with caches when it is needed by programs. That's why I think that his memory problems come from a program that uses too much memory.

comment How do I clean or disable the memory cache?
Are you sure this will solve your problem? Memory doesn't fill up without a reason. I also had the problem that my memory was filling up, and traced it back to tracker-miner. After I uninstalled all tracker packages, my problem went away. I also have 4GB memory, and 2GB are used by chaches, but I'm nor experiencing any problems.
