VPN server possible on restricted network?

  • Posted September 8, 2014

So this is my situation. I am in a new school which has internet restriction. The first few day I was using SoftEther VPN server back at my home and it worked pretty well, but my pc got shutdown. Right now I am considering to rent a server at DigitalOcean and have my server run here, so I can connect to the internet without restriction. Is this possible, especially with the $5 low tier server? Is there any hardware, distro requirements for running a SoftEther VPN server? (Not a big fan of OpenVPN) My location is at UK, near London. I’ve found a tutorial in the community but I was wondering can this kind of connection possible. (I know there’s this 1TB transmit cap, but I would like to testdrive the whole setup first.)

Share $3.33 a month for unlimited VPN, with several countries to choose from. I get good speeds from them and no limits.

Unless you were wanting a remote server for other purposes…

If its a really hardcore situation, i would suggest you using same methods as people in countries where internet is censored.

I actually use too for my VPN service. Works well.
