Fedora comes with OpenVPN, just put the configuration files in /etc/openvpn/client/ and you can do this and connect:

systemctl start

Where is says has to be the name of the configuration file for that server.

There are other two ways of using VPN if you don't have a subscription.

  1. Use Tor browser this will help you browse anonymously

  2. You can install/add VPN proxy add-on in Firefox. Recently, I used one and it works like a charm. I recommend using 'Hoxx VPN proxy'.

It makes sense to use OpenVPN.

Launch it and add configurations.

However, you need to find a service provider first. Some bad ones are free (they sell your data, etc), stay away from these. Yet, one of the best one is considered expressvpn.

But be sure to read the review to understand what it offers:

I found they have a configuration guide as well on youtube: As they claim on their website, "These steps work for Ubuntu, Mint, Debian, Fedora, and CentOS."

This should answer your question.

You can use Cisco AnyConnect VPN using the built-in Network Manager in Fedora Workstation. On Fedora 27, go to Settings -> Network -> VPN. And then, click the plus icon to add a new VPN connection. Choose Cisco AnyConnect Compatible VPN (openconnect).

Next there is a window for Add VPN. There, add the info for your VPN connection. You'll typically only need to add Gateway. Press Add and you're done.

To Start the VPN, press the on/off switch next to your VPN name and you are prompted for username and password. Provide them and you will be connected. image description

What to fill in Gateway?

I don't have VPN address. If you could help me in this, I would be very thankful.

If you don't have a VPN subscription, you can use Tor Browser to bypass filtering or for anonymous browsing.
