ExpressVPN on Linux

I tried to install ExpressVPN on my Ubuntu Gnome, and I was following the “how to” guide by ExpressVPN, and got some issues. Luckily I found this thread https://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=2342534

To view the server list, simply enter the following in terminal: expressvpn list

netshinobi@netshinobiug:~$ expressvpn list | less
ALIAS   COUNTRY                                  LOCATION                         RECOMMENDED
-----   ---------------                          ------------------------------   -----------
smart   Smart Location                           USA - New York                   Y
usny    United States (US)                       USA - New York                   Y
usla                                             USA - Los Angeles                Y
usch                                             USA - Chicago                    Y
usny2                                            USA - New York - 2 
...

Once you selected your server, to connect enter the following: expressvpn connect <server-alias>

Let’s say that I want to connect to Atlanta

netshinobi@netshinobiug:~$ expressvpn connect usat
Connecting to USA - Atlanta... 100.0%
Connected.
netshinobi@netshinobiug:~$

To check the status of the vpn, type-in: expressvpn status

netshinobi@netshinobiug:~$ expressvpn status
Connected to USA - Atlanta
netshinobi@netshinobiug:

To disconnect, just type in expressvpn disconnect

netshinobi@netshinobiug:~$ expressvpn disconnect 
Disconnecting...
Disconnected.
netshinobi@netshinobiug:~$

Or you can check the man page: man expressvpn

Cheers!

About networkshinobi

My name is Karlo, I work as a Network Engineer. A little about myself. I started as a PC gamer back when I was in high school. PC gaming became my addiction and pushed me to learn more about computers. Slowly got my some certifications and landed an IT Tier 1 Helpdesk job. This job opened the door for me to work to push further on my certifications and going deeper into the IT world. My goal was to get my Cisco CCIE Routing and Switching, but my journey for CCIE has changed due to I always ended up working on non-Cisco network appliances. Therefore, I have to pivot and decided to jump to the dark side and go with Juniper. Hopefully, I would get my JNCIE in the near future. All the entries/post I made are based on my views, opinion and for educational purposes only. If you see some mistakes, feel free to drop some comments. I would appreciate all the helpful comments. Thanks
