"VPN Service failed to start" and Deep Packet Inspection (DPI)

Asked by Geek

"PPTP VPN Service failed to start"
"VPN Service Failed to start"

This should help many people if you’re having constant disconnects with VPN on Ubuntu. :)
some countries use advanced firewall ( Deep packet inspection ) to Censorship the Internet ( in this scenario, disconnect VPN ) and instead of block traffics directly use simple and powerful tricks such as DNS Interception ( redirect or block queries for specific domains ) or DNS filtering so that resemble it is an old bug. indeed, Deep packet inspection technology has the ability to decrypt on the fly, perform SSL session inspection , Once a match is detected the connection is disconnected and the user gets a ‘403’ forbidden page or ‘page not found’ and one is important for us disconnect VPNs regularly.

what's your opinion?

If you get an SSH server outside of your country then make an SSH tunnel to that server, you can then use that as a proxy for web access.

Bit easier

@ andrew-woodhead666
thank you for response, but this isn't a strong way against DPI.

Can you help with this problem?
