How to set up XYX on Raspberry Pi

Last Updated: October 6, 2021

OysterVPN is all you’ll need to keep your data safe, get around censorship, and watch streaming content on your device. Keep in mind that depending on the Linux distribution you’re using. Some configurations may differ. Also, take note of the following requirements:

  1. Raspberry Pi with ARM processor
  2. Linux distribution like Raspbian or RaspBMC
  3. Up to date software packages
  4. An OysterVPN account
  5. An active OysterVPN subscription

This tutorial was prepared using a Raspberry Pi with a Desktop running Debian Stretch 9. So, follow the below steps to set up OysterVPN on Raspberry Pi:

  1. Download the OysterVPN ovpn files. Click here to download.
  2. Extract the downloaded folder from your “Downloads” folder.
  3. After extracting it, you’ll see two different folders for TCP and UDP server configuration files: TCP Files and UDP Files.
  4. The package repository must now be updated.
  5. For that, open a terminal and type this sudo apt-get update command line below. The package repository will be updated.
  6. Now you need to install OpenVPN.
  7. Enter this sudo apt-get install OpenVPN commands in the terminal.
  8. For confirmation, type y., and download OpenVPN within a few moments.
  9. Now you must navigate to the OpenVPN TCP or UDP configuration files directory.
  10. In a terminal, type these commands and click Enter.
  11. cd Downloads cd UDP_Files (OR cd TCP_Files depending on which protocol you want to connect to)
  12. From the list above, type sudo OpenVPN [Your selected server].
  13. It will ask you to enter your credentials.
  14. Press “Enter” after entering your “OysterVPN Username” and “OysterVPN Password“. Adding the “@” symbol to your username may cause issues. If this occurs, hit shift ‘+’to add this symbol. [Alternatively, you should upgrade your Raspberry Pi keyboard layout]
  15. Now, when you see the yellow highlighted message, it signifies you’re connected.
