This entry is part 1 of 4 in the series PrivateInternetAccess Using Squid Proxy and OpenVPN

PrivateInternetAccess Using OpenVPN and Squid Proxy – Introduction

This series of articles describes how to set up a VPN connection to PrivateInternetAccess using OpenVPN and squid proxy to share the VPN connection and overcome the 5 device limit on the PIA account.

We will be using:

  • Debian Wheezy netinstall ISO
    • webmin – to configure our server
    • OpenVPN – to create our VPN connection
    • squid proxy – to route specific traffic or applications through the VPN

Our network diagram for this example is as follows:

The client is sitting on the 172.16.16.0 network and accessing the proxy in the DMZ 192.168.101.0 subnet. Outgoing traffic will then be routed out through the VPN interface (tun0) encrypted and anonymised.

This series is organised as follows:

  1.  Installing Debian using the netinstall method and making sure we have the correct software installed
  2. Configuring squid proxy
  3. Installing and configuring OpenVPN to connect to the PrivateInternetAccess VPN
  4.  Final words

Enjoy and comments welcome!
