Best free OpenVPN service to use on Linux.

The vpnkeys.com website hosts OpenVPN config bundles and offers a very good VPN service that gives you an IP address in the UK. this would be good if you are wishing to hide your identity online. I have used this and it works a treat on Fedora 25. Just run openvpn as root and point it to the certificate file. Download the certificate bundles here: https://www.vpnkeys.com/get-free-vpn-instantly/. I was using vpnbook.com before, but their cert bundles will not connect anymore, so I had to look for an alternative. But this is very cool. Good way to access the Internet without revealing your home IP address to the world.

Just extract to a new folder and connect like this.

[[email protected] VPN]# openvpn --config uk1.vpnkeys.com.tcp.ovpn

The certificate bundle does use 64bit ciphers instead of 128bit, but it is still fairly secure, good for browsing UK sites that are only available to UK Internet users.
