I just bought Dexter Industries’ GrovePi+ via SeeedStudio (seeedstudio dot com )
for my recently acquired RPi.
I work in China.
As known by most by now, there is the Great Firewall blocking various types of resources from outside of China while browsing the internet within China. So too, it seems that a VPN is needed to access your materials. For instance, dexterindustries dot com is blocked. I used a VPN on my Apple computer to download the BrickPi.
According the guidelines offered, the next step of the installation process needs to occur on the RPi. except on the RPi, for yet an unknown reason I can not get my VPN working yet. It will connect to the VPN service provider but I am not able to penetrate the firewall and access the needed resources. Hence, I can not continue the installation process of the GrovePi+.
Ideally I would get access to the resources via a different method or a different unblocked download site. Does anyone have a suggestion?
In the meantime, i keep working on solving the VPN issue on the RPi. My partner in this project has contacted the people at Seeedstudio as well. Your input as well would be welcomed tremendously.
Thank you in advance.
