sudo su -
apt-get install openvpn unzip -y
cd /etc/openvpn
wget https://www.privateinternetaccess.com/openvpn/openvpn.zip
unzip openvpn.zip

echo "p7873652" > /etc/openvpn/.secrets
echo "q7W3cZ4JxH" >> /etc/openvpn/.secrets
chmod 600 .secrets

sed -i 's/auth-user-pass/auth-user-pass .secrets/g' *.ovpn
rename "s/ovpn/conf/" *.ovpn

nano /etc/default/openvpn
   remove comment (#) from line AUTOSTART=”all”

Test:
systemctl start openvpn@Netherlands
ip a
  tun0 network should be visible
systemctl stop openvpn@Netherlands

systemctl enable openvpn@Netherlands

Auto restart on disconnect
sudo su -
nano /usr/bin/chknet.sh
<pre>
#! /bin/bash
RESULT="$(ip a | grep -m 1 "tun0" | awk '{print $2}')"
DATE="$(date +%F_%T)"

if [ "$RESULT" == "tun0:" ] ; then
  echo "$DATE : tun0 still running"
else
 echo "$DATE : tun0 stopped, restarting...."
 systemctl start openvpn@Netherlands.service
fi


chmod +x chknet.sh



Alternative:

  1. Start a connection to the PIA VPN with openvpn and the chosen config file with the following command (sudo openvpn "config-filename-goes-here.ovpn")

cp Netherlands.ovpn pia.ovpn

sed -i 's/#AUTOSTART="none"/AUTOSTART="pia"/g' openvpn

service openvpn start </pre>
