  • pivpn

    The Simplest VPN installer, designed for Raspberry Pi

    Thus ss you'd have to be complete in that sense as otherwise you'd have nothing to connect to. Also to prevent the whole world to connect to it and start brute forcing it, you should have things like fail2ban, connection whitelists or whatever setup to reduce the attack vector somewhat. So for more most who are unexperienced, a vpn is easier to achieve... especially with a solution like https://pivpn.io to have a wireguard or openvpn setup using server and client certs on a raspberry pi for example.
