Connecting to an OpenVPN (untangle) network from linux: How to

Just connected to an OpenVPN (untangle) network from linux and it was super easy (way easier than a normal cisco vpn anyway)

All you have to do is:

install the openvpn client for your distro and  get your config files from the network admin

  • the files should look somethign like below
  • replace xyz-co with and you with your details
xyz-co.conf
xyz-co.ovpn
untangle-vpn/
untangle-vpn/xyz-co-ca.crt
untangle-vpn/xyz-co-you.crt
untangle-vpn/xyz-co-you.key

copy the above files into your /etc/openvpn directory, then connect using the below command

sudo openvpn /etc/openvpn/xyz-co.conf

all done - too easy
