DietPi on RockPro64 as seedbox, VPN help
Posted: Sat May 25, 2019 3:14 pm
Hi, apologies if this has been asked and answered before, but for the life of me, I can't work this out. I am extremely new to Linux, and decided that it was time for me to make a home seedbox / plex server / cloud server / whatever else this can do, and a RockPro64 with DietPi seemed like the perfect place to start. I have had only minor issues until now, with a quick search online answered most if not all, but when it comes to using my VPN provider, I am getting nowhere. I use ExpressVPN, which suits my wife and kids as it's installed on the Android TVs for viewing overseas Netflix, so I really don't want to change. But I have tried and tried to get ExpressVPN to work on DietPi, but am having no luck. The installers don't seem to work, either, I can't extract them or they just error, and PiVPN and OpenVPN seem more geared towards providing your own VPN service rather then connecting to one. I have a .ovpn file, the credentials, but I lack the know-how to get it working. My ISP throttles any torrenting (private or otherwise) to less than 10% of my connection, so any help would be greatly appreciated. What I was hoping for was an always on VPN, that connects on startup and if possible (what I have setup in Windows) is that if the VPN disconnects, it would stop all internet traffic, but could still be accessed on the local network, and would attempt to reconnect.
