    Just purchased a OpenVZ Cent 6 OS VPS - can i use this as a VPN?

    title says it all, i followed a guide but it didn't work for me...

    i emailed the hosting site to ask them to enable TUN and PPP, is there anyway I can put either Open VPN or pptp vpn on this vps?


    help is very much appreciated!

    They need to enable tun module first in the main node.

    Also if your provider uses a Management panel like SoluVM you should be able to
    enable the support for your container yourself inside the User control panel.

    Needs to still be loaded on the HW node first, then you can use the control panel to enable/disable in solusvm.

    Sure you can. Which guide did you follow? There are many here on WHT that have worked perfectly fine.

    I tried to get OpenVPN Acces Server running on a OpenVZ VPS. I enabled everything that needed to be enabled, nothing worked. After that I installed it on a KVM VPS and got it running withing 5 minutes, without any trouble.

    If your host isn't responding fast about enabling TUN/TAP / PPP or you're having trouble installing your VPN you could just tunnel over SSH.

    If you know very little - please read, read & read. If the previous advice somehow “fails”, follow this guide:

    If you're not sure how to reverse whatever you've changed, and since it's a new VPS anyway, I'd suggest reloading it and starting from a fresh install.

    thanks for the help, i just followed the first guide and got stuck, so i tried the second guide posted here and connected to the vpn successfully..

    however the connection speed is extremely slow, i did a speedtest and it showed

    0.111 Mb/s download
    0.499 Mb/s upload


    websites take ages to load and i cannot stream on youtube... is this to do with the vps or the guide?

    i have a 10mbps connection and have tried other VPN's in the past that drop the 10mbps to about 8 or 9..

    help is much appreciated!

    How far are you from where the vpn server is located? Routing between you and the vpn server is important.. you must pick a location that has good routing to you.

    I know it's far but i have connected to other VPN's in the u.k and US which are no way near as slow..
