This snippet of code was posted in 2014 and slightly revised in 2016 and 2017. It was more of a quick'n'dirty script than a polished tool. It is made only for Linux and in Python 2, which has since become outdated.
I currently do not use it, and I suggest you avoid it as well. Please do not expect support for using this script.
The rest of the README is left for historical purposed.
This script allows to use the free VPN service provided by VPNGate in an easy way. The user just needs to provide the desidered output country, and the script automatically chooses the best server.
After this step, OpenVPN is launched with the proper configuration. The VPN can be terminated by pressing Ctrl+C.
Run the script by providing the desired output country:
Both country codes and country names are supported, as listed on the VPNGate website, e.g.:
vpngate.py "United Kingdom"
Moreover, the script allows to input countries with any case (
ItALy all work) and with partial names:
Koreawill work for
Korea Republic Of
Russiawill work for
- ... and so on
Here is a short Youtube video showcasing an example usage:
OpenVPN needs to be installed.
The script should run on any Linux distribution with the Python Requests module installed. The user running the script must be able to run
sudo commands in order to start
