Please note: You will need to use a clean version of Raspbian. Raspbian Lite isn't recommended as it doesn’t have the desktop software pre-installed so you will only be able to use the command line.
- Load the terminal on the Raspberry Pi.
Update the Raspbian to the latest packages.
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get upgrade
Install the OpenVPN package, you can do this by entering the following command.
sudo apt-get install openvpn
Change directory to the OpenVPN directory by entering the following.
You now need to download the VyprVPN ovpn files.
sudo wget -O vyprvpn.zip \
Next, you will now need to extract the files that we need.
sudo unzip vyprvpn.zip
Move all the files to the base directory and delete VyprVPN directory.
sudo mv /etc/openvpn/OpenVPN256/* /etc/openvpn/
sudo rm -r /etc/openvpn/OpenVPN256
To connect to VyprVPN simply use the following command.
sudo openvpn "/etc/openvpn/File_Name"
Replace "File_Name" with the location of where you wish to connect. The file name is case-sensitive and will not work with all lowercase characters. For example, if you wanted Belgium as the location, then you will need to use "Belgium.ovpn". You can view all the locations by using the following command.
ls -l /etc/openvpn
Below is an example of connecting to Belgium.
sudo openvpn "/etc/openvpn/Belgium.ovpn"
You will now be prompted for your credentials, and you will need to enter them to be able to connect to VyprVPN. You can test your connection by going to https://whatismyipaddress.com/ - you should have a different IP address assigned other than your usual one.
If you need to disconnect, then you can easily use either ctrl+c or the following command.
sudo killall openvpn
Please keep in mind that VyprVPN does not support IPv6. If you have an IPv6 address assigned by your ISP to your Raspberry Pi, websites will still see that IP address even when connected to VyprVPN. To avoid this, you can disable IPv6 using our instructions here.
