comment Issue Mounting NAS
I don't think NFS supports giving a username/password. The access control is done on the server, which specifies which IP addresses to allow mounting an exported directory

comment Issue Mounting NAS
Try adding the filesystem type to the command line: -t nfs. nfs is not supported by the normal mount command.

comment Is there a way to update all Java related alternatives?
You don't have to install the plugin (and you shouldn't if you don't need it, due to security considerations). update-java-alternatives changes all other java alternatives, even when the plugin setting throws an error.

@fromnaboo It's a bad example, I know. But sometimes you do not have access to the internal working of a program you have to use, and so yes can help you avoid endlessly repeating the same input.

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)?

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

@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?
