    Hi,

    My internet is connected with a proxy server, the proxy server is set up with an automatic .pac file. I wonder if it's possible to set up a vpn along with the proxy.

    As long as you can proxy the port that the VPN uses, it should work.

    Depending on the type of VPN connection and proxy.

    As far I know, PPTP can't be proxied but OpenVPN can.


    Also be aware that the type of proxy server may leak DNS.

    HTTP and Socks 4 leak DNS, but socks5 should be safe if set up properly.
    If the VPN connection is UDP over OpenVPN, the proxy server must also support UDP.

    What are you trying to accomplish?

    If the proxy is controlled by the entity imposing a non-circumvention policy, you don't obtain any more privacy by proxying the VPN.

    But yes, it's possible however, research how it's done properly. It's very easy to make a mistake.
