Yes a VPN Client so you can setup other computers gateway to point to the Pi IP address.

When I get to the install where it asks to select an endpoint nothing comes up in the list.

odd, I just tried it with a fresh DietPi install and I got the full list.

Could you try running the script again, it's possible it failed to download the endpoints from the PIA website.

I can't because it cut off internet access to the vm

I'm fairly certain it won't have been caused by this script as the only things it will have done up until that point were to install the openvpn client and download a zip file from PIA, all the killswitch functionality is configured last and it does not touch any networking configuration.

I've been using this since Aug 2019 & (while the setup didn't go smoothly for me) now it's up & running, it's worked flawlessly ever since.

Thank you for this script - it's a great help
