I have been looking around for a good VPN solution to use while traveling recently. I have a few services running at home, that I really don’t want on the internet (OctoPrint, general ssh access etc), but I want to use remotely. I also want a way to secure my connection when I don’t trust the network I’m connecting through.
I had previously set up a L2TP Remote user VPN in the UniFi controller, but it had a few issues.
- Instability on android (the VPN wouldn’t even show as ‘disconnected’, it would simply stop)
- Issues when connecting to it from ipv6 cell carriers
