OpenVPN Trouble Please help!!

I did some reading on Openvpn and am following some instructions I found @ Install & Configure OpenVPN SSL VPN in SUSE & openSUSE Linux | SUSE & openSUSE

I keep getting the same error message when I run the . ./vars command
“NOTE: If you run ./clean-all, I will be doing a rm -rf on /etc/openvpn/easy-rsa/2.0/keys”

But when I run …/vars I get
“Bash: …/vars: Permission denied”

Can anyone tell me what I’m doing wrong?
Any help is very much appreciated!!

If you are following that document, it is “. ./vars”, not “…/vars”. (There is a space after the first dot).
