How do I connect to OpenVPN in SUSE 12.1?
I tried running
sudo /usr/sbin/openvpn [path-to-conf-file]
But I can’t load any pages after I insert my username and password.
I also tried running NetworkManager as root from the terminal, but with the same result.
I would prefer to get this working with NetworkManager but I definitely want this working in whatever way possible.
EDIT: It connected fine in Ubuntu
Do you have your cert-file (USERNAME.crt) in the same directory as your config-file or does the config-file point to the right file?
Same goes for your “USERNAME.crt” file.
sudo /usr/sbin/openvpn CONFIGFILE.ovpn
I keep all config-files, keys and other openvpn-whatnot in “/etc/openvpn/” and I have to execute the command there or change the config-file to use absolute paths to cert/key.
Here is an example of a working config-file but you probable have other config options:
remote servername.xxx 1191
keepalive 10 120
Kind Regards Thermal…
I have two files in my /etc/openvpn folder.
The .conf and the .ca.crt.
My VPN-provider said I must enable VPN through NetworkManager but that didn’t work. Starting NM with root privileges helped but ran into the same problem as with the CLI.
Do I need anymore files in that folder with the other two? Thermal mentioned a USERNAME.crt file.
