autovpn - Easily connect to a VPN in a country of your choice



Tuesday, February 7, 2017


autovpn is a tool to automatically connect you to a random VPN in a country of your choice. It uses openvpn to connect you to a server obtained from VPN Gate.

Compiling
First clone the repo and cd into the directory:
$ git clone https://github.com/adtac/autovpn
$ cd autovpn
Then run this to generate the executable:
$ go build autovpn.go
It's Go. What do you expect?

Requirements
This requires openvpn . To install this on a yum -based distro:
$ sudo dnf install openvpn
If you're on a apt -based distro:
$ sudo apt-get install openvpn
Tested and works on Fedora 23. Dunno about Windows. Patches welcome.

Usage
Simply run:
$ ./autovpn
and you're done. You'll be connected to a server in the US. Welcome to the US!
You can give a country if you want. For example, if you want to connect to a server in Japan:
$ ./autovpn JP
You may need superuser privileges. Don't worry, I'm not running rm -rf --no-preserve-root / underneath. It's for openvpn.
