Help installing astrill-setup-linux.deb

Tue Sep 27, 2016 7:51 am

I am trying to install (Debian astrill-setup-Linux.deb file) Astrill VPN onto my RP3. I have copied the file and tried the straight forward double click self install option with the following error "Failed to install file".

I then tried the sudo dpkg -I /home/pi/downloads/astrill-setup-Linux.deb

But again failed.

Anybody know how to install ASTRILL VPN onto a RP3 running Raspbian.
My other computer is a VIC20.

According to the Astrill Download page the Linux download is for x86 CPU Architecture...

......the Raspberry Pi has ARM CPU Architecture !!!!
Take what I advise as advice not the utopian holy grail, and it is gratis !!

there is no astrill client provided by Astrill for Raspberry. However you can install openvpn , get the certificate from you astrill account and good to go.
sudo apt-get install openvpn
download a certificate for OpenVPN with configuration files (from member page VPN services)
sudo openvpn --config 01-USA-Dallas-1.ovpn (for example if you want to use the server in Dallas)

Return to “Raspberry Pi OS”
