cs & traffic over paid vpn? - 05-May-2014, 12:28

hi guys
I have got me a raspberry pi for xbmc on my tv running openelec at mo
my isp (BT) tends to block a lot of content,
I had previously set up a proxy but they get shut down by free hosting sites so I was thinking about buying a cheapish vpn to test for a month then depending my buy a year.
I have a few options open to me but was wondering if I put the vpn into the router and routed all traffic down it how this would affect my cs server?
i am also able to just route just the r-pi but if i am paying for a vpn i might as well use it right?
I am also out of contract with my isp so may consider changing to another isp that does not block the content but reluctant to change to sign into a new deal just yet because I will be getting fibre to the cabinet sometime this year (new cabinet already in) but no fixed date
just toying with a few ideas and thought I would ask your opinions

As far as I know (and parental controls aside - which can be turned off) BT only block file sharing websites etc when ordered to do so by the courts. (and I would imagine all the top ISP's would get the same order)

(Rationale: http://www.techradar.com/news/intern...-sites-1194662)

To me it seems the ISP's don't really care what you do, out of all the convictions I've heard about for filesharing and other copyright based cases - not one have been initiated by the ISP.. most have been the result of private companies monitoring torrents/websites and them asking [or via court order] the ISP for your details.

It can't really be that hard for ISP's to identify 'suspicious' activity.. hell, back in the day I used to download anything and everything [without encryption].. I was probably using 100x more bandwidth than my neighbours.. not one word from any ISP to question my useage. [Nowerdays there's no need.. streaming.. oh how times have changed]

But while ISP's are being forced to block file sharing sites etc, I don't think they're going as far as blocking ports - so I wouldn't worry about talk of content blocking. And if you want to get into one of those websites just go to google, type the website name and add 'mirror' on the end, you'll be on the site in less than 2 mins.

Torrents/filesharing a much bigger "problem" I would say.. and ISP's don't even seem to be pro-active against that.. with that in mind I'd say the only concearn is making a connection to a 'honey pot'.. a trap basically.. [similar to private companies knocking out a fake torrent to log people's IP's]

Visiting a site or being a member isn't enough evidence, you have to be caught in the act.. and only those servers who you connect to can do that. [Unless of course there is other evidence, like huge house, a garage of flash cars etc while your claiming benefits, he he]

I'm no legal expert by the way.. but news of prosecutions is very rare and are typically against people making huge amounts of money doing it in plain sight ;)

Hello !
Below is a simple network design. If I was you I would host a virtual linux server and build on it the vpn and the proxy.

[virtual linux server + openvpn and proxy(squid)] <--vpn-tunnel-->[your raspberry]

Cheers!
