    Has anyone here set up a VPN server at Amazon Web Services, DigitalOcean or Scaleway?

    I think it would be nice if there were instructions here geared toward Mac users and I'm looking into it.

    I'd suggest looking at a hosted VPN solution instead. I find maintaining something like this can be annoying at best.

    Thanks. I have a VPN service subscription and there are many threads regarding those types of paid services on these forums. I've participated in several of those.

    Not surprising to find out there are many, many ways to do this. I found one that was unbelievably easy...check out this YouTube video showing how.

    I've discovered that Little Snitch doesn't filter incoming connections through the Algo IPSEC VPN connection (or any IPSEC VPN). It's an Apple issue, apparently.
