Update... I hope this helps people looking at this thread as well.

I found this thread on reddit.

https://www.reddit.com/r/VPN/comments/34ueji/linux_vpn_with_kill_switch_and_dns_leak_prevention/

Was hoping you guys could decipher some of what they are saying above.

Are they saying not to use a VPN service? and to use openVPN GUI with the code mentioned and implementing the UFW?
If so, is it safe to do so in regards to not wanting to use the unsecure PPTP.

Still really new to all this.

You guys have been great.

Actually, I liken coming onto this forum (after finding the great Peppermint OS) to walking into a 4th year engineering class at university and asking a 1st year question, while the 4th year students are just sitting their shaking their heads...lol
Now I know how my Grandfather felt (when he got on "This internet thingy") when he asked me what a right click on the mouse does...  >:(

^ Give me some time, I'm making a step by step tutorial on "How To Install and Use OpenVPN"!
Going to use a free VPN service with no GUI/Client as an example so you (and everyone else) can experiment with it!  ;)

Haxors, blackhats, and government agencies love winders !

I'll have to hand it to Apple, on this.  They evidently don't put backdoors in their OSs -- at least, not on their dumb phones.

winders users are soooo screwed on this 'accidental' release of the MS backdoor key(s) !!!   :D
