PureVPN has made it easier for you to set up the VPN on your Linux using the Command Line script. Here is the complete tutorial:

 

1 In order to download the script, please refer to the command below to be entered in Terminal

wget https://www.dropbox.com/s/nqv4xd32wmy2pcy/purevpn-pptp

2 Access the file location using the following command:

cd /home/purevpn/Downloads (purevpn will be replaced by your username)

3 Type the following command to make this script executable:

sudo chmod +x purevpn-pptp

sudo cp purevpn-pptp /usr/bin/

4 To log into the script file, type the following command:

sudo purevpn-pptp -li

(It will ask you to enter your VPN username and password)

5 Enter the following command to connect to a VPN server:

purevpn-pptp -c usca.pointtoserver.com

(usca.pointtoserver.com is the PPTP server address, but you can enter your desired address as well)

6 VPN is now connected. You can verify your IP location details from your web browser by visiting the website: www.ipaddress.com

7 If you want to disconnect the VPN, refer to the following command:

sudo purevpn-pptp -d
