OPENVPN BLOCKED

Post by drravi1110 » Sat Aug 22, 2020 4:18 am

I have been using OPENVPN since last 5-6 years, I use it for security and privacy. Other advantage of OPENVPN was it helped me watch geo blocked videos/shows/movies etc. I prefer to watch Indian content (not interested in Netflix)
But recently most of Indian websites (specially Hotstar) have started detecting VPN.
I have tried many ways out but did not work, definitely they are not blocking data centre IP addresses but blocking VPN data.
If this situation persist VPN will be a dead thing for streaming.
Can we have any solution to this, a guide or tutorial !!
Or we can't do it !!
Appreciate help.
Thanks.

I have configured OPENVPN, used data centre VPS from Digitalocean, AWS, Linode, Azure
Currently have working vpn on Debian - Amazon lightsail - Mumbai
Never used vpn from commercial providers ( eg Express/Nord etc)

Thanks

Hi all,
I saw how Smart DNS works, then I checked with websites which detect and block vpn traffic
Now my plan is to connect Client (myself) to OPENVPN server A, then server A connects to OPENVPN server B, so the file configuration will be
Client => Server A => Server B
Now on Server B we will disable - Should client Internet traffic be routed through the VPN - No
This process will make the handshake as normal https and if the website traces IP address or DNS - information will be from Server A (I am planning to keep both servers in same location)
My problem is how to connect Server A to Server B, both will be on Linux machines (Debian)
Please help me, if anybody has a easy step to step guide for this.
Thanks

My answers are a reflection of the quality of your questions ..

Amazon or CloudFlare .. if they are in the same location then what else do you need .. ?

I expect what you mean is: How do I make Server A a client of Server B ..
