ok now copy one of the .ovpn files they gave you to /etc/openvpn

now from the cli run this command
Code:
You don't have permission to view the code content. Log in or register now.
now the service should start and ask you for your username and password, do this

if it runs you should see code like below appear in the CLI
Code:
You don't have permission to view the code content. Log in or register now.

yes telnet. cli is command line interface and you can use telnet to access it

openvpn/ect/openvpn/server ???

no you must type exactly like the command i gave you but replace the <nameofopvnfile.ovpn> with the name of the .ovpn file your provider gave you and you put in the directory. you must have the space between openvpn and the path

for example here is my complete command, yours will look the exact same except your ovpn file name will be different.

Code:
You don't have permission to view the code content. Log in or register now.
if it doesnt work after that. Make sure you have openvpn installed? and the ovpn file in the correct directory.
to install on vix(what i use) go to network and then openvpn it will ask do you want to install say yes. reboot the machine and run the command i gave you earlier.

Hi
Ok followed exactly my server file openvpn /etc/openvpn/ipvanish-nottingham-Uk in Telnet
Telnet cli -options error: in [cmd]-Line]:1: error opening configuration file /etc/openvpn/ipvanish-nottingham-uk use help for more informaion
i have installed openvpn in network vu+/reboot
I dont have a folder in /etc so i created one named it openvpn and placed opvn
I think there is a problem with my ovpn!

I also used a different ovpn server file just in case

Hi i have vpn HideMyAss account you mentioned before
I would like to connect the same way ! ovpn file ca.crt in etc/openvpn/
I would like to know because it looks more difficult when i have googled it, but i know you said it can be done as you have it on your Vu+ machine using openvpn
I have all the info i just need to know if it is straight forward as before in this chat.
Thanks

its easier

all you have to do is copy a .ovpn file to /etc/openvpn/ and run the command below. you will then be asked for your username and password and it will.

Code:
You don't have permission to view the code content. Log in or register now.
there is plenty of guides out there if you are having trouble.

mkdir /dev/net
mknod /dev/net/tun c 10 200

just to let people know that after you have put your nameofserver.ovpn. and ca.crt with ipvanish you can follow above from alankellyeire.Before you run openvpn nameofserver.ovpn you have to configure tun above, just type two lines above before you put your openvpnnameofserver.com order bellow.
cd /etc/openvpn/
ls (this is the letter l as in lima or lorry)
mkdir /dev/net
mknod /dev/net/tun/ c 10 200
openvpn nameofserver.ovpn
user name
password
press green on you Vu+ duo2 and it should turn from red to green.
"i'd like to thank alankellyyeire for helping me! Yes! i now have my vu+ working using openvpn :):Wave:
