Pandora and Hulu in Canada with VPN script

Warning: Use this script at your own risk. I am not responsible if it messes up your server or if you lose data.

I have tested the script on a fresh installation of Ubuntu 10.10 and recommend you also install this script on a fresh install. If you want to modify an existing installation this script might work but I’d recommend you read my previous blog post on this subject instead.

Copy and paste the following line into your ssh terminal.

wget https://blog.jtclark.ca/wp-content/uploads/vpn-setup.sh;chmod +x vpn-setup.sh

Run the script

./vpn-setup.sh

Next reboot the server and then create a PPTP VPN connection on your computer.
The script automatically sets the login to user: user and pass: pass
You can change this by editing /etc/ppp/chap-secrets

If you are curious of what the script does here is the source below.

#!/bin/sh
apt-get install pptpd -y
echo "localip 192.168.123.1" >> /etc/pptpd.conf
echo "remoteip 192.168.123.234-238,192.168.123.245" >> /etc/pptpd.conf

echo "user pptpd pass *" >> /etc/ppp/chap-secrets
/etc/init.d/pptpd restart
echo "ms-dns 208.67.222.222" >> /etc/ppp/pptpd-options
echo "ms-dns 208.67.220.220" >> /etc/ppp/pptpd-options
echo "net.ipv4.ip_forward=1" >> /etc/sysctl.conf
sysctl -p
sed -n '$!p' /etc/rc.local > /tmp/rc.local.temp
cp /tmp/rc.local.temp /etc/rc.local
rm /tmp/rc.local.temp
echo "/sbin/iptables -t nat -A POSTROUTING -s 192.168.123.0/24 -o eth0 -j MASQUERADE" >> /etc/rc.local
echo "exit 0" >> /etc/rc.local

  1. I followed your complete instructions about installation of Pandora and Hulu for my uk vpn. I came to surprised that it really worked with uk vpn also with the same procedure. Some minor changes have been made. Now using these in uk.
