I am using Ubuntu 16.04 and I need a vpn client which runs on Linux. The program should be free or open source.

  • For clarification: Do you want to install VPN software on your Linux machine, to be used remotely e.g. with your laptop, tablet or smartphone ("VPN Server") – or do you want to use some VPN your Linux machine should connect to ("VPN Client")? Further note we recommend software here, not howtos or manuals/tutorials ;)

  • @Izzy: am looking for a simple and free software like psiphon on Linux. Commented Feb 25, 2018 at 7:31
  • We will need much more information to give good recommendations here – asking for "a tool like X" is never giving enough details, even if linked. You should always list your requirements explicitly. Please see How to ask for an alternative to some software and the questions linked to it for details. Some people (myself included) might never have heard of psiphon – if they would know the features you need, they could still know a software matching them.
