So a friend of mine noticed my previous post about updating all of my VPN configuration and asked the question, “Why did you decide to go with HideMyAss when they keep logs?” I had a couple of reasons, the primary was that they weren’t the provider that I was using before, and secondarily because I didn’t really care that much.
Due to the changes that I outlined in my previously mentioned post, switching providers was very, very trivial. I only needed to add a new peer, which I
vpn, updated my
chap-secrets with the relevant information, and I had a small change my
ip-down.d scripts that were responsible for my
iptables rules to route all of my traffic through the
ppp0 interface, as well as my
fastest_ip.py script to find the fastest route.
I know I can still improve on this process, but for now, done and done.
