autovpn is a tool to automatically connect you to a random VPN in a country of your choice. It uses openvpn to connect you to a server obtained from VPN Gate.


First clone the repo and cd into the directory:

$ git clone
$ cd autovpn

Then run this to generate the executable:

$ go build autovpn.go

It's Go. What do you expect?


This requires openvpn.

To install this on a yum-based distro:

$ sudo dnf install openvpn

If you're on a apt-based distro:

$ sudo apt-get install openvpn

And on Mac OSX:

$ brew install openvpn
$ # add the executable to your path
$ export PATH=$(brew --prefix openvpn)/sbin:$PATH

Tested and works on Fedora 23 and MacOS Sierra 10.12.6. Dunno about Windows. Patches welcome.


Simply run:

$ ./autovpn

and you're done. You'll be connected to a server in the US. Welcome to the US!

You can give a country if you want. For example, if you want to connect to a server in Japan:

$ ./autovpn JP

You may need superuser privileges. Don't worry, I'm not running rm -rf --no-preserve-root / underneath. It's for openvpn.


All patches welcome!


This is completely insecure. Please do not use this for anything important. Get a real and secure VPN. This is mostly a fun tool to get a VPN for a few minutes.
