Using Cloudron OpenVPN
Hi guys, can you pls help me understand more about the process of installing & using Cloudron OpenVPN. I’ve done the reading of the docs, some demoing & trying to make it clear in my mind. (this post is a bit longer than usual)
So we start by installing the app on any existing domain on Cloudron, then use the Cloudron admin username & pw to login -> create a new device -> download the .ovpn zipped.
We put the .ovpn into The Network Manager OpenVPN plugin, which only works for Ubuntu 16.04, not 18.04 or Windows?
In this way, when browsing the web on the computer (with .ovpn zipped added), our Cloudron server IP/location & rDNS hostname (my.cloudrondashboard.com) may be collected. Is this way safe?
You can download a couple of different formats for openvpn, depending on which platform you are using. I don't have a complete list of supported clients currently, maybe someone else can share how to make it work on Windows.
@vjvanjungg If you are worried about the the safety angle, I recommend setting up a separate server for VPN. For example, setup Cloudron at
my.vpnserver.domain.comand then install openvpn at
How are you intending to use VPN? Is this consumer VPN use or the use VPN as a gateway to your existing internal network?
