How do I tunnel my restricted internet on Ubuntu 20.04

I’m a noob don’t crucify me

So I just installed Ubuntu 20.04 but I don’t know why certain addresses are restricted by my ISP

Can anyone help with this, thanks

Hello @Joshua_Idornigie,

Welcome to the nixCraft forum.

What do you mean by certain addresses are restricted by the ISP? Are you talking about dns names/websites or IP address? It would help if you give exact error along with screenshot.

Typically ISP block IP address using firewall or websites using DNS.

Thanks for the welcome, That would be the ip address that is blocked

I’m sorry I cannot upload a screenshot at this moment

You need to set up a VPN such as WireGuard or OpenVPN on a server that is outside your country or ISP network. Since you are a new Linux user, I would suggest getting a VPN service that works with Ubuntu Linux. This is how I get around my ISP’s blocked as they block both IPs and websites using DNS. I set up my VPN server on Linode. It costs like $5.

Another option see if HTTPS version of the website loads.

For our third option, use 3rd party DNS such as Cloudflars, Google and more along with TLS/DoH extension.
