Now let’s build our own VPN server.

The easiest way to have your VPN server is to have it order from above plans, But we understand if you need full control of your server with your VPN Network. 

For building your own VPN server you need Linux VPS server, basic knowledge of Linux commandsPuTTY SSH ClientFileZilla Client and Pritunl OpenVPN Client

Don’t worry about the Linux commands as I will walk you through for every command here in this article.

Step 1: Select your VPS Server

You can select VPS Server on bases of the location you desire for example Suppose you want to use Facebook and you are based in China then you can select VPS Server in India (Facebook is banned in China) or if you based in Mumbai and you want your VPN to be near you then you can select and VPS based in our datacenter in Mumbai.

If you want even more powerful VPN server which may be used by several employees of your company then you can also consider going for Dedicated Servers.

Once you have decided the right server and you have ordered it, You will get your server details with the root password.

Step 2: Connect to your server

Once you download Putty enter the server IP address in the server connection area and use the root username and password which must have been emailed to your registered id.

Step 3: The Linux Commands for VPN Server setup

The first thing we need to do is update our OS, to do this use the following two commands:

yum update

yum upgrade

Next, Download the OpenVPN auto-installer script

wget https://raw.githubusercontent.com/Nyr/openvpn-install/master/openvpn-install.sh

Make sure the script has the right permissions

How Do I Setup My Own VPN Server

The first thing the configuration will ask is for the VPN IP address, this should be your VPS / Dedicated Server IP. 

This should be shown automatically if not then enter the correct one as per your activation email.

After which you need to tell the VPN server which protocol to use, select UDP.

leave the default port as displayed (note it down).

The important step is to tell VPN server to use which DNS Server, I personally use google DNS.

Now, The last step is to give username for your client, over here I am using mostlytest.

How to set-up a VPN client ?

Once you are done with the server setup, you need to setup client which will be used by a user to connect VPN server.

Download Filezilla and open FTP connection with the server using root username / password provided.

You should see openVPN config file under root folder, with the username.ovpm in our case, it should be mostlytest.ovpn as shown in screenshot.

open VPN config file

Next, You need to download and open pritunl open VPN client, click on import profile and import the OpenVPN configuration file you just downloaded.

Now, Just click on connect and it should connect to your new VPN server and in no time you should be connected to your own private VPN.
