Mac Mini VPN Server
I'm using my Mac Mini 2018 for multiple uses right now, Plex server, iTunes sharing, Time Machine access, and I would like to setup a free VPN server to run on this machine. I'd like to try setting it up and trying it out before deciding if I want to pay for a service.
Can anyone point me in the correct direction on how to set this up? I have been searching online and have found a couple things, but I'd hate to run through all the processes only to find out that it's an obsolete method.
The migration guide helped me get the VPN server quickly up and running on Mojave.
I mainly want to be able to connect my MacBook Pro to this server so that the prying eyes of my ISP are blocked for my web use. This isn't something I need all the time, like I don't take my laptop to travel (I just take my phone and sometimes iPad). With this being stated, I can afford to lose some speed for those rare moments.
I'd rather not spend any extra money on other devices, so I am trying to take advantage of software solutions to this issue.
Thanx, I'll check into the link you provided.
Thanx, I hadn't really thought about that fact... I'm new to VPN. I knew a 3rd party allowed me to connect to their service and then it would only report that connection to my ISP but thought that a software based server on a second Mac would be able to simulate the same thing. Basically the MacBook Pro connects to the Mac Mini and it tells the ISP that I was at X location instead of Y or Z through IP spoofing. But yeah, if I'm still using my own systems, connected to my ISP, they will still see what's going on since I have to have my system connected directly to them.
So now I have to decide if a paid service is worth the hassle and price for the access I want. ExpressVPN has a 15 month plan right now for $99.99 so I may go for that.
Thanx for the clarification and the prevention of the possible "oops" of trying the home server setup and failing lol.
