PIA VPN Set-up



  • I have asked this before and never been able to set it up, but has anyone been able to get PIA VPN set up on their UBPorts devices?

    I have it set up on all my systems apart from my Touch ones and they are the ones that I want to try and start using more and more, especially my tablets.

    Can anyone advise me how to set PIA up, who has successfully set it up on their devices and is running with it currently? I have seen a set-up guide but that did not work, so anyone who has done it successfully and can share the steps, would be appreciated.



  • What is PIA VPN? With ota3 vpnc is included which allows to access a Cisco VPN network.



  • @cherrie Vpnc and CISCO VPN, that's interesting. How can the settings be entered? Has the connection to be established from the command line, editing a configuration file, or can the setttings be entered with the configuration gui interface? There the only available option seems to be OpenVPN.



  • Private Internet Access

    I see on the downloads site there is a download for linux, but I was under the understanding that this did not support UBPorts.



  • @wgarcia said in PIA VPN Set-up:
    There the only available option seems to be OpenVPN.

    That is the issue that there is only the Open VPN options.



  • @wgarcia I tested it so far on a N5 running RC. Create a config file e.g. vpn.conf
    #######################################
    IPSec gateway <name-of-vpn-gw>
    IPSec ID <ID>
    IPSec obfuscated secret <long line of characters make sure it is on 1 line>
    Xauth username <your-login>
    #######################################

    Now call: sudo vpnc-connect --domain <your-domain> /home/phablet/vpn.conf
    It will ask first your sudo password, then the password for the VPN service.
    At the end this message will be displayed.
    VPNC started in background (pid: xxxxxxx)...

    Execute command: ifconfig tun0
    and you should have a tunnel interface with an IP Address.

    To disconnect type: sudo vpnc-disconnect

    There is no GUI at the moment, current VPN offers only OpenVPN.



  • Is this for all (including PIA)?



  • @ukphil PIA uses OpenVPN, so my understanding is you can use the UBPorts GUI interface.
