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.
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.
