Subject description: 2.4 series starting with better security features and how to install
 

For Dog-based OS :

https://community.openvpn.net/openvpn/wiki/OpenvpnSoftwareRepos#UsingOpenVPNaptrepositories

Openvpn in Ubuntu repositories is pretty old. To benefit from better security features, you better have the 2.4 series installed. Here is how :

Import the public GPG key :
wget -O - https://swupdate.openvpn.net/repos/repo-public.gpg|apt-key add -

Then change your source list to add openvpn repository :
echo "deb http://build.openvpn.net/debian/openvpn/<version> <osrelease> main" > /etc/apt/sources.list.d/openvpn-aptrepo.list

apt update and install openvpn.

To be sure you have 2.4 series installed :
openvpn --version

Now you need a certificate bundle from whatever VPN provider. I use VPNBook.

Subject description: testing your DNS provider
 

https://www.dnsleaktest.com/

Using DNS leak test is a good way to establish which DNS provider you use.

We assume you use VPNBook, and after setting up your VPN, you test it with DNS leak.

You should have : 142.4.206.228 ca1.vpnbook.com OVH Hosting Canada, if you used vpnbook-ca1-tcp443.ovpn.

The result means you bypass your ISP surveillance at the DNS level. Your ISP is responsible for noticing users about illegal downloading of copyrighted material, but your VPN is blocking its ability to do network surveillance.

You can further test your VPN with this website : whatismyipaddress. You will appear to connect to the Web from a far away place, such as India, which means your real location is blocked.

Is it bad or good to use a VPN? For privacy, it is good.
