This post is about using a VPN client to connect and let your internal Network Machine to use it.
I would like to avoid my internet provide to see (uncrypted) content that I am access while I am surfing the web.
What you need:
One Linux machine, for this I choose Ubuntu (v11) even version 12 would have worked; and your VPN account. (like giganews).
– Setup Ubuntu as normal/regular machine.
– Setup your VPN client to connect to your VPN using the Network Manager :
Follow the step as the print screen below:
Of course, replace the GW address, user name and password with your own account.
Once, this is setup; check if you are able to connect using this vpn connection.
Now, we will need to include the password for this connection from the connection settings file:
vi /etc/NetworkManager/system-connections/My\ VPN
Change the following:
password-flags=0 (default is at 1)
and add the following from this file:
Once done, you can then use and start the VPN by command line like:
1. Check the connection list:
Now, you can run this command to start your vpn:
nmcli con up id ‘my_vpn’
So, from now you can add this command line from your profile (/home/your local profile/.profile).
The command line will be executed when you logon.
