I have uploaded a few builds of OpenVPN version 2.3.14
These are compiled in Precise, Slacko 5.7 and Wheezy respectively.
Repo versions for these Puppies are earlier so nice to have the latest stable (at time of posting).

This seems to work well. It can be used with free providers such as VPNBook or the paid-for providers. It is quite easy to start and run from command line with:-
Code:
openvpn --config /path/to/config/file
Enter username and password if prompted.
Once it starts up you can close the terminal.
To stop it and return to routing directly through your ISP
Code:
killall openvpn
The config file is downloaded from the VPN provider you are using. You place it wherever you want. (Rename it if you want too). Then specify the path of where you have put it in the launch code above.

I see that went up yesterday so I would not have been likely to find it .
I see your answers to the error masseges and will try to incorporate those in my useage .

Can you tell me where I find the configure file to put it in please?

I don't think there is any doubt that a name and password must be supplied . The name staying as "vpnbook" but the password changing from time to time and must be obtained from the vpnbook website.

I have found on precise 5.7.1 closing the terminal kills the tunnel.
For me it would not compile as it needed "libpam" which is not on my distro. I'll grab your compiled binary and give it a run
