Dear community,

is there a VPN for dummies guideline available somewhere ? I would like to pilot, but cannot actually get further than finding the VPN from the settings. How do I get it working properly. Do I need to download/register to something or how does this work ?

Do you have a VPN? Your VPN provider usually provides you with all the details, and you just need to fill those in in the VPN settings. Not everything works correctly yet, though.

First, you need a VPN provider. This can be a commercial one, for a few $ a month, or a service from your workplace, or you can easily setup most current home routers or NAS to do this.

Then on Sailfish you could use the native client or the app SecureFishNet, but both seem to be broken in SailfishX, at least they don't work anymore for me since this major upgrade. Eventually there is a command line or config file hack for this. Could someone please describe how to get VPN working in SailfishX?
