Re: Raspbian on Pi 2 as VPN

Couple of guides here to setup your PI as a vpn server which will use your VPN service to encrypt all your traffic routed through the PI. The only issue is speed. Your not going to get much speed through the PI but its sufficient for browsing etc. Check these out. http://www.dickson.me.uk/2016/06/21...
