[Solved] Personal VPN in Linux

Post  Jmlevick on Sat Aug 20, 2011 4:50 pm

Hi there:

I was wondering if is there something like Hotspot Shield or TunnelBear for Linux
or if not, How can I easily mount a VPN connection in Fedora for example? (or any linux distro)

These programs are based on OpenVPN so I was thinking that it might not be THAT difficult to
mount a Linux alternative... For those who don't know, a VPN network allows you to be Completely
annonymous while using the internet on your computer, using encrypted annonymous connection for
everything at system's level...

Have been reading a lot, but it's quite difficult

OpenVPN is too difficult to Setup and Tor is not what I'm looking for.

Any advice?

How it all ended...

Hey everybody!

Let me tell you what happened with this:

At the end No one in the Whole Internet was able to give me an Answer... :S

Anyway, I finally found (all by myself) what I needed but it just seem to work in Ubuntu and not in Fedora (wich is the distro I use). However, As I'm going to recieve some "Acer Aspire Revo" PC's (one for personal use) to transform them into different kinds of Linux Servers, I decided that Mounting an OpenVPN installation "for once in a lifetime" in order to use it whenever (and wherever) it is needed is worth the time it requires,

Thanks!

UPDATE on this issue:

With "At the end I found what I needed" I was refering to"Hostizzle"
wich is a service that provide you with free OpenVPN certificates and
configuration files, installing OpenVPN package from repos & the lastest Kvpnc on the machine (built from
source this one) I was able to connect to an external hosted VPN just like with Hotspot
Shield or TunnelBear using the package that "Hostizzle" provide to you...

Hostizzle Provide you with 100GB of monthly VPN bandwidth, an USA IP adress,
connection encryption with blowfish SSL/TLS of 1024 Bits and other interesting stuff.
The thing worked at the end in Fedora too, just had to use the lastest version of
OpenVPN Client "Kvpnc" and disable SELinux; (Set it to permissive mode,
after using the VPN I switch to enforcing always). The Point is, If it works on Fedora
and Ubuntu, I bet this solution can work in any distro.

Hope this helps someone out there.

P.S. More info, the tutorial and even a video of my "investigation" are in here:

C'ya!
