@19wintersp It is made using OpenVPN i think. Please help me configure it!!

A VPN is basically a proxy with an encrypted data tunnel. It's difficult to set up, but if you really really want to, you can use something like OpenVPN as a starting point.

@nkmrepl As I said, it's a bit difficult: this tutorial might help.

@19wintersp The tuto is good. But the problem is it needs superuser privileges and repl.it denies it.

@nkmrepl They'd expect you to sort hosting yourself, making your own VPN system is fiddly. I don't think you'd be able to host on Replit.

@19wintersp if its possible to make an unblocker in repl then there has to be a way to make a vpn in repl am i wrong or right?

@AlexisCortes Not really, being able to make a basic proxy doesn't mean you can make a VPN.
