So i want to setup a vpn for firefox browsing only, as i don't want download speeds to be affected. This was my plan-

Setup Raspberry Pi with VPN ( with private Internet access vpn), enable SSH2.

On main computer, connect to RPi using putty.

Then put in my proxy setting into firefox.

Will this work ? If so, will the RPi be powerful enough to make sure my speeds are not greatly affected too much?

Ideally I want to setup a NAS, and then just run a VPN on my my PC, so save worrying about SSH and proxy's

Any other ideas, that might work and be easier? I would just prefer to pay for a SSH2 tunnel to save worrying about my own server but it seems more expensive and none with Aust Severs

thanks fork, yeah they had an article in the Financial Review, saying how bad data retention is that most ppl dont understand what they are in for.

New idea, setup up proxycap to make firefox use a SOCKS5 Proxy through PIA. Now SSH tunnelling is done via Proxycap making it all encrypted. http://www.proxycap.com/ssh-tunn.html

I bought proxycap back in the day for WoW, so only need to pay for vpn now through PIA

Currently using PIA.

I don't notice any speed drops.

Or like me, I know what I'm in for, but not how to create a workaround.

so that proxycap socks5 wasn't encrypted, i was miss reading it as SSH tunnel. anyway, after mucking around for a few hours. I found that you can use a program called Viscosity, which setups an openvpn via PIA. but you can select what sites to access / not access via vpn. I set it up selecting vpn to cover all connections,made an exclusion list up that i didn't want slowed. Probably the best setup so far, without worrying about a nas or server setup. Connected to Melbourne Server with no noticeable reduction in everyday browsing speed.

Hey guys, how great is this?

The Abbott government has caved in to sustained pressure from the US media industry and introduced copyright laws into parliament that appear to have the sole purpose of stamping out the rebellion against delayed access to content and rip-off prices.

And to add salt to the wounds, the US media and ICT multinationals have seemingly gone to extraordinary lengths to minimise tax paid in Australia over past decades.

For the moguls, the proposed copyright laws will give them extraordinary power to have websites that they deem to be harmful to their business blocked in Australia. As for Australians that continue to resist, the media giants will now use the courts to gain access to their metadata that will be collected under the Telecommunications (Interception and Access) Amendment (Data Retention) Bill 2015.

Was it a coincidence that the Communications Minister Malcolm Turnbull introduced the Copyright Amendment (Online Infringement) Bill 2015 into Parliament on 26 March, the same day the data retention bill became law?

The iiNet clause

Section 9 of the Bill is likely to become known as the iiNet clause or the “shut up and do as your told” clause because it states that “the carriage service provider is not liable for any costs in relation to the proceedings unless the provider enters an appearance and takes part in the proceedings.”

Hey Silver, If I select "use tap device" i don't experience speed drops. is it safe to roll with this setting enabled?
