VPN for Leap 15.4 in Canada

I’m in Canada with Telus Fibre for internet access. I will soon be moving from a house to an apartment with shared high speed internet.

I will need a vpn. Expressvpn seems to the fastest but their setup/software seems to support the ubuntu variants, not opensuse.

  1. Is there any instructions for expressvpn for opensuse?


  1. A better alternative for opensuse?
$ inxi -Nxx

Did you try the rpm that you can download from their site? It is also described how to install on rpm based distributions on their site…

I used the Fedora rpm on Mageia when i was 3 month in China. Worked well…


I saw the rpm but it says that it’s for fedora and the derivatives. So no, I didn’t try it since I don’t want to mess with my regular networking.

Would it work under leap?


Probably, but the only way to test is to try. Make a snapshot with snapper and try installing it.

If it doesn’t, then you best bet is to use a VPN that provides a wireguard configuration IMHO.

I use express VPN with openSUSE LEAP 15.3 and 15.4. I use openVPN software for LEAP… I manually downloaded the openVPN files for different countries and use openvpn, Network manager ( and Network Manager openVPN) to utilise the VPN as required.

I don’t think Express vpn uses ipv6, so that is a downside to Express VPN. … In my case I disabled ipv6 on my PC, but obviously thats not an ideal solution.
