Host exovpn with a free VPS instead of on the main server #52

Currently, exovpn routes traffic to the main exozyme server, which makes all the traffic look like it's coming out of my house. It would be a lot better if it could be routed to some random VPS instead.

Maybe check out Google Cloud's free tier or one of these: https://pankajconnect.medium.com/aws-azure-and-google-cloud-which-free-tier-is-best-1139e7abf49a

I don't feel well hearing Google here.

I'm going to have to pick some company's cloud service for this, so the other main options are Microsoft Azure, Oracle Cloud, and AWS. Pick your poison.

Plus, many "self-hosted" servers are actually hosted on these cloud services, so...

Closing and labelling as wontfix because we'll have to use a cloud service provider, maintain another server, and no one even uses exovpn right now.

I can host exovpn on an MIT VPS since I can now get those for free. Anyone interested?

Is MIT safe?

Good question. I don't think it's less safe than any traditional VPS provider since any provider can seize your VPS if they want. However, I'll seen their server room in person (and I have some photos of it too!).

Also, I'm not sure how to allow users to configure the WireGuard server without a security hole, so I'll have to work on this later when I have some time.

Closing this for now since I don't want to manage multiple servers, but comment if you would like me to reopen this. I'll probably use NixOS for the new VPS.
