If you are using Ubuntu as your desktop client or if you are using ubuntu as a proxy server and you want to provide un restricted internet access to users (I assume for learning purposes like youtube) , You can use vpnbook vpn connection to provide access.b You can use this service in number of ways, either via mikrotik, proxy, single pc or for any other pruposes. Following is a short method to do the task.


mkdir /temp

cd /temp

wget http://www.vpnbook.com/free-openvpn-account/VPNBook.com-OpenVPN-UK1.zip
wget http://www.vpnbook.com/free-openvpn-account/VPNBook.com-OpenVPN-Euro1.zip

Now Unzip the package you download, but first intall UNZIP tool and then unzip it.

apt-get install unzip

unzip VPNBook.com-OpenVPN-UK1.zip
unzip VPNBook.com-OpenVPN-Euro1.zip

Now install OPENVPN client tool. It will be used later to dial the vpn connection for vpnbook,


apt-get install openvpn

.

Now to connect to vpnbook server, use following command


openvpn --config vpnbook-uk1-tcp443.ovpn
.
OR you can also try following
.
openvpn --config vpnbook-euro1-tcp80.ovpn

It will ask user name and password, use following

Username:  vpnbook

Password:   stU2EFez

After successful connection, goto http://www.mywanip.com or http://www.whatismyip.com to verify the ip connectivity.

Make sure to use Google DNS 8.8.8.8 as your primary dns for resolving addresses.
