I am looking for a simple VPN solution that I could host myself on a VPS. Perhaps @Vulpix, or anyone, could point me to the right direction.
The main use-case for the VPN would be defeating geo-blocks of certain service providers, especially Netflix. Maximum security is not a concern, as it would not be used for delivering nuclear missile launch codes or anything. Just VPN server that would be easy to setup, maintain and usable on a wide range of devices. Potentially I would also share the resource with some friends or small groups.
- Simple installation, easy to administrate.
- Simple management of user accounts, GUI preferred over terminal.
- Authentication could be plain username/password combination - no need for certificate keys or anything.
- Good client device compatibility - it would be ideal if the native operating system PPTP clients could be used (Ubuntu/Linux, Windows, mobile devices would be a plus)
I don’t have any experience in self hosted VPNs, OpenVPN or anything else, so before start extensive reseearch on the topic, I would appreciate any tips and recommendations.
