Rolling your own VPN server

Dan Moren:

With the news that internet service providers may soon start scanning all your personal data and using it to target ads, I decided it was time to investigate setting up a virtual private network (VPN) server. I’ve mentioned this in a couple places, including recently on Clockwise, and had more than a few people asking if I’d document my experience.

Dan walks through how to set up OpenVPN on your own machine, which works great.

I use ExpressVPN myself currently as my primary VPN which is nice if you don’t want to roll your own VPN server.
