    How to use VPN?

    Hi, you can move this topic to server platforms forum if you want.

    I tried yesterday to install many different VPN clients and in the end I understood I must have some login information in order to use VPN.

    so, after I install OpenVPN, where to find Gateway (I suppose it is IP address, should I write my local IP address or some server address?), CA file, Certificate, key, username and password?

    I believe I should connect client to some server, but I don't have idea where to find OpenVPN server and its IP address and username and password and certificates...

    I tried one time even with my email hosting, they let me to download zip file with VPN configuration files, but I didn't succeed to use OpenVPN to connect to my email.
    but I am interested to use some free VPN for Kubuntu for Internet generally, not only for email.

    some tutorial on youtube doesn't say where he downloaded his openvpn configuration (zip) file...

    should I register myself at some server in order to be able to use openvpn? if yes, which server? I don't have any idea...

    -------------------------

    today I tried PPTP and again no success, here is video of desktop screenshot, you can tell me where I make mistake, video shows that there are the same parameters from website and in my vpn network inreface: http://s619.photobucket.com/user/glo...b9c71.mp4.html

    VPN Type: PPTP VPN
    Encryption: Enabled (or Auto)
    VPN Server: superfreevpn.com
    VPN Username: free
    VPN Password: 1622

    I tried also:

    debian@debian:~$ iptables -A INPUT -i eth0 -p tcp --sport 1723 -m state --state ESTABLISHED -j ACCEPT

    debian@debian:~$ sudo iptables --append INPUT --protocol 47 --jump ACCEPT

    debian@debian:~$ sudo iptables --append INPUT --protocol tcp --match tcp --destination-port 1723 --jump ACCEPT

    I guess you need to do a bit of reading. OpenVPN is a secure point-to-point connection based on a public key infrastructure, so its not done by simply installing a program.

    VPN Username: free
