Unable to use Nyr's VPN installer

Hi guys. I know, I'm a total newb to git, but could anybody advise me how to resolve the following:


[email protected]:~# wget git.io/vpn --no-check-certificate -O openvpn-install.sh; bash openvpn-install.sh
converted 'http://git.io/vpn' (ANSI_X3.4-1968) -> 'http://git.io/vpn' (UTF-8)
--2017-06-26 11:38:47--  http://git.io/vpn
Resolving git.io (git.io)... failed: Name or service not known.
wget: unable to resolve host address 'git.io'


Thanks guys smile

Re: Unable to use Nyr's VPN installer

Maybe you could try to install https://github.com/Angristan/OpenVPN-install - it's based on Nyr's script, but has been updated to have a few more options in terms of security. The domain on that page for installation is raw.githubusercontent.com, so trying that installation script could bring some light onto whether the DNS won't resolve for all sites, or just git.io. Alternatively, you could copy the content of the file at http://git.io/vpn to your PC, and insert it into a file named openvpn-install.sh on the VPS, and then run the bash script.
