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

#! /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>
