PiVPN server

Sun Apr 07, 2019 9:03 am

I’ve setup PiVPN for remote access to my home network and it works great.

Can PiVPN also be used to encrypt traffic on my home lan when torrenting or to bypass location locks?

I have tested it by checking the ip assigned by my isp which doesn’t change when pivpn is running. I assume I would need to use a paid service for this. If so any recommendations?

piVPN is a server, so unless you have someone that is willing to run a server on their own network and expose themselves to the risk you are trying to bypass you will need to use an external vpn service either free or paid.
