OpenVPN is a free and open-source virtual private network (VPN).
Let’s install the openvpn client.
Assuming that you have an openvpn settings file, calling here as setup.ovpn.
cat setup.ovpn client proto tcp-client remote 184.108.40.206 1194 dev tun resolv-retry infinite nobind persist-key persist-tun remote-cert-tls server verify-x509-name server_lBklUYL2BA98l9B3 name auth SHA256 auth-nocache cipher AES-128-GCM tls-client tls-version-min 1.2 tls-cipher TLS-ECDHE-ECDSA-WITH-AES-128-GCM-SHA256 ignore-unknown-option block-outside-dns setenv opt block-outside-dns # Prevent Windows 10 DNS leak verb 3 <ca> -----BEGIN CERTIFICATE----- ... -----END CERTIFICATE----- </ca> <cert> -----BEGIN CERTIFICATE----- ... -----END CERTIFICATE----- </cert> <key> -----BEGIN ENCRYPTED PRIVATE KEY----- ... -----END ENCRYPTED PRIVATE KEY----- </key> <tls-crypt> # # 2048 bit OpenVPN static key # -----BEGIN OpenVPN Static key V1----- ... -----END OpenVPN Static key V1----- </tls-crypt>
Let’s create a directory to ours opvn files, as root:
mkdir -p /etc/openvpn
Store your opvn files in /etc/openvpn.
To connect use:
/usr/local/sbin/openvpn --config /etc/openvpn/setup.ovpn
If you need to provide a password, use
/usr/local/sbin/openvpn --askpass --config /etc/openvpn/setup.ovpn
Create a hostname file to your new network interface.
Edit the hostname.tun0 file.
up !/usr/local/sbin/openvpn --daemon --config /etc/openvpn/setup.ovpn
Now you can setup your interface.
ifconfig tun0 up
