So I'm new to the whole networking scene (especially VPN's). I'm am pretty hardware oriented and am in the process of completing my A+ certification and then onto my Network+ certification.
I'm pretty far ahead in class and find much free time which I use to surf the web. The issue is my school network uses Fortiguard as a web restriction service and blocks most websites even ones with just info on them. So I decided I wanted to set up a VPN to use while in class. My questions are the Following:
Will a VPN allow me to get around Fortiguard?
Should I try a paid service first like TunnelBear or just go to creating my own VPN?
If I do create my own VPN I plan on using a Raspberry Pi 3 set up at my home which has about a 20Mbps Upload speed. Will this be sufficient?
Anything else I should know?
