  1. Update sha1 as it is deprecated and no longer supported by newer devices and operating systems

    I am getting an error "signature digest algorithm too weak" because sha1 is deprecated and no longer supported by newer devices and operating systems. Users of Arch and other distributions with more recent software stacks are seeing problems connecting to PureVPN first- but its going to be a major problem everywhere very shortly as other operating systems and devices receive security updates.

    • Bash script for connection management via command line

      It would be great if you write a shell script for connection management via command line, that can be then used by shell scripts on Linux servers to issue a Connect/Disconnect & Change Server commands.

      The script could also have an option to connect to the best performance server and it would then query PureVPN's API for that server, or just connect to a random server, and in this case, it could pull a list of servers and then select one automatically.

      HMA service have something like that years ago, as far as I could remember, as I used their…

      • PureVPN linux-files.zip Needs Updating with latest server names

        Hi Team, your linux-files.zip file, i.e. That's mentioned on following link needs updating --->

        https://support.purevpn.com/linux-openvpn-command

        Actual link to file that needs updating below :

        https://s3-us-west1.amazonaws.com/heartbleed/linux/linux-files.zip

        Needed urgently as UK servers among others are out of date. Needed for bulk global update on packages many people use within OpenVPN within Linux.

        Many thanks in advance

        • can you support linux slackware 14.2 using openvpn server files

          I am using Windows 10 for purevpn but my primary os is linux slackware 14.2. There is another vpn that I used with Slackware but it was very slow. They seamed to only need a file for openvpn to become operational.

          • GUI Openvpn Server List.

            I think it'd be cool to have a comprehensive GUI server list for optimal openvpn Linux connections. It's nice knowing what servers are over loaded and which ones are not. It'd be easier to do this in Windows or OSX first, then try to create a Linux compatible one, but I think it'd be really useful in the long run.

            • Update-Resolv Conf script (UbuntuBuzz)

              This might be more of a question than a suggestion, because the PureVPN configuration set up is different than NordVpn or PIA. BUT

              I recall using a script relating to "update-resolv-conf," which when copy/pasted into a particular configuration file, it halted DNS leaks. Perhaps there's a way to do this in the PureVPN config-files for OVPN? Just a thought. I tried copy/pasting them and it did not have the same result, which isn't surprising and I am not disappointed. I was just curious. :3

              • You could use a set up guide for openSUSE ,after all it is the 4th most used linux flavor according to "Distro Watch" --

                flavor according to "Distro Watch"---https://distrowatch.com/index.php?dataspan=26, right behind 1. Mint 2.Debian 3.Ubuntu 4.openSUSE and you have install guides for 1,2,and 3--also for Razzbury PI. I think SUSE should have come before RAZZ pi just by the user base numbers

                • VPN app for *buntu

                  OpenVPN through Network Manager is very simple, but an app would mean access to the Internet Kill Switch. My current VPN allows for this, and it's the only obstacle to changing over to PureVPN instantly.
