I am trying to setup an OpenVpn server following [this](https://www.digitalocean.com/community/tutorials/how-to-set-up-an-openvpn-server-on-ubuntu-16-04) great guide. But I still have a question: I need http-proxy to be enabled to bypass a firewall, how can I set that up? I could not find anything too useful online.
If you have any suggestion (even a useful link), it would be great.
If needed - I have a Ubuntu Server droplet.
I made an OpenVPN server with the tutorial for a single user. How would I go about making an OpenVPN server for my team which has separate credentials for each user, preferably username and password. Also how do I go about managing the users if say a team member leaves to revoke their access, and generate new credentials for new members?
I need help with configuring OpenVPN as client on Ubuntu 16. I installed OpenVPN and successfully started connection but I don't know how to correctly route traffic to go through that connection.
This is my route table:

I just got set up and going with pptpd. I can connect. I can browse, kinda. I cannot get any speed test to work except google's when connected to the VPN which reports 4Mb/s down and 4.72Mb/s up. The upload seems about right for my connection but the download is nowhere near what my home connection should be at.

cannot get speedtest.net or speedof.me to even load, google reports above.

By all metrics the droplet should be able to saturate my connection on the download but its not even coming close. Am I being throttled in some way? Is there something wrong with using pptpd vs openvpn?
