Very useful and in-depth post. I amazed to read it. Can you let me know that Astrill VPN can run with this program? Thanks

Thanks for the comments.
It is difficult to give a definitive answer regarding Astrill VPN or any of the other paid-for VPN services unless I sign up for them, but generally speaking it should be possible to use this system to access their services. I took a brief look and it appears that they do support OpenVPN which is what my system uses. If you sign up, they should provide you with a bundle of .ovpn configuration files. These are just text files. Not sure if you may also need to grab certificates and add those in as well. Often they are already included in the .ovpn file. Their wiki had some information which you might need to study. Essentially though, you just pluck out the .ovpn file for the VPN server you want to access and use that.

I tried simple VPN in the RC3 for Stretch from radky.
I expected that the openvpn pet for stretch from OscarTalks would work, but it didn't.

I compiled it from source then, and now it does work. The version is now 2.4.6.
You can download it here: https://drive.google.com/open?id=1Ead006EcBAzRi2s702yjoSu5hxaJkm0f

Thanks for letting me know about the stretch .pet
I have removed it from my Smokey01.com repo, at least for now.
Maybe some library version (such as OpenSSL or something) has been updated in Radky's build, but this is now the main version of Dpup Stretch so packages should be compatible with it. Compiling from source is always a good move, or folks can use your openvpn build since it has been tested.

Code:
openvpn --config /etc/vpnconfig
gave some error with 'ifconfig failed' which leeds to busybox and the version of busybox in radky's RC3 is much newer.

BTW, I found the freeVPN servers a lot better than VPNbook. I use it to go on IRC chat sometimes. It could be that VPNbook is better for other uses.
