    • open VPN with transmission

      hi, my goal is to not get caught downloading totally legal stuff with my OMV rapsberry pi 3 nas

      But, I can't figure out how to use open vpn and transmission together.
      one thing I know is: transmission work

      I'm using openmediavault 3 (erasmus) with static ip correctly set by the rooter;
      here are my configs: imgur.com/a/ow3gt

      and I did opened my upd port 1194


      I verify that transmission's vpn work with torguard.net/checkmytorrentipaddress.php


      thanks for all !
    • So. as I'm making my mess I'm writing it to this manual:

      Source Code

      1. ya want to dl totally legal stuff ? ez !
      2. first update ya'r system with
      3. sudo apt update && sudo apt upgrade
      4. then install openvpn with
      5. sudo apt install openvpn
      6. ya want to have a vpn; the one I use is vpnbook.com ; Here are some alternatives : http://www.topito.com/top-vpn-gratuit-mac-windows-linux
      7. download da file (for vpnbook I clicked on the first server dl on the openvpn tab)
      8. then extract it and ya should get a file .ovpn
      9. I chose the udp53 one but tcp is fine.
      10. then rename it vpn.conf and edit it and find the line $auth-user-pass ;make it $auth-user-pass /etc/openvpn/login.txt
      11. then create a login.txt file into /etc/openvpn/ and add into the first line your vpn username and in the second line your vpn password
      12. openvpn should now be ready, test it with $openvpn /etc/openvpn/vpn.conf
      13. now ya can verify your ip adress with
      14. curl ipinfo.io/ip
      15. and copying ya'r ip in whatismyipaddress.com/ip-lookup
      16. and watch the result, ya should be in another country now !
      17. if no error is found, well GG ! time to automate this on boot !
      18. to to this we will edit /etc/rc.local and add $openvpn /etc/openvpn/vpn.conf
      19. at the beginning of the file, beware, don't forget to finish the script with exit 0 !!!
      20. now reboot, try again $ curl ipinfo.io/ip
      21. And for further verification use https://torguard.net/checkmytorrentipaddress.php to check your torrent downloading

      and now when finally testing with transmission (after I opened it's port on the OMV firewall gui) I'm downloading with my normal connection.. wich I don't want.

      So I did

      Source Code

      1. $traceroute google.com
      2. 1 10.8.0.1 (10.8.0.1) 74.055 ms 74.074 ms 74.805 ms

      4. 3 * * *
      5. 4 * * *
      6. 5 * * *
      7. 6 * * *
      8. 7 * * google.interlan.ro (86.104.125.129) 103.600 ms
      9. 8 * * *
      10. 9 * * *
      11. 10 * * *
      12. 11 * * *
      13. 12 * * *
      14. 13 * * *
      15. 14 * * *
      16. 15 * * *
      17. 16 * * *
      18. 17 * * *
      19. 18 * *^C

      and if I understand well, this means that I'm downloading with both my vpn and normal connection ? ...


      ps: I read that the OMV openvpn plugin wasn't made for what I search, so I use the normal openvpn gotten via apt.

      thanks again !
