You can bypass all of that aggravation and let Fruho do all of the work for you .

and it handles ProtonVPN perfectly .... what's not to like ?

I know this project.
But it is dangerous to use it... Fruho is badly updated, source code is 2 years old and and contains a lot of bugs.

so I'm looking for classical solutions.
