I stumbled across a VPN script via HackerNews (I think). https://github.com/Nyr/openvpn-install?files=1
It worked as advertised on my Ubuntu 14.04 DigitalOcean server.
It even out of the box forwards ALL local traffic through the VPN, which is what a paranoid person should want.
How to proceed
- Needless to say, get yer self a small VPS or server at Linode, DigitalOcean or Amazon AWS,etc.
- Install Tunnelblick
- Download the .ovpn file from the setup
- Use this file.
- Profit from a more secure internet connection in public places.
