PostPosted: Wed 21 Dec 2016, 14:23    Post subject:  OpenVPN 2.4.3  

I have uploaded a few builds of OpenVPN version 2.4.3
These are compiled in Precise, Slacko 5.7, Wheezy and Stretch respectively.

This seems to work well. It can be used with free providers such as VPNBook or VPNGate 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.
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 to something simpler 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

Version update to 2.4.3
See first post.
To be able to be sure you can close the terminal without stopping openvpn
Code:
openvpn --daemon --config /path/to/config/file
but you will not see the initialization output.

Just want to say thanks again for putting this stuff up . I'm just having another look at VPN to see if I can get it going finally.

Its pretty straightforward this way . Download the openvpn pet and then download the 4 certificate files and put them say in /root.
http://smokey01.com/OscarTalks/openvpn-2.4.3-precise.pet Also stretch,slako and wheezy.
http://www.vpnbook.com/free-openvpn-account/VPNBook.com-OpenVPN-Euro1.zip
http://www.vpnbook.com/


Choose one of those to try and issue say
Code:
# openvpn --config vpnbook-euro1-tcp80.ovpn
in a terminal window

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 under the openvpn tab.
http://www.vpnbook.com/

And there you go . As long as you get "Initialization Sequence Completed" it seems to work fine.
This creates a tunnel that gives a false IP address to your ISP and everybody else. So you can get the torrent address to put into transmission or whatever you use to bring down torrents.

Once I have obtained my torrent links I close the tunnel for faster downloads on my normal Wlan0.

I have found on precise 5.7.1 closing the terminal kills the tunnel. Ihave to just minimise it .

I've had quite a lot of dropouts from the openvpn server it seems but I hope to sort this out. Edit once I learnt how to use it I have not lost one since.

Not bad for free!

EDIT - on another thread I asked for help to automate the getting of name and password from their site . I was very pleased with the resulting answer here

Hi April, are you obliged to donate before you can download?
Not to be a scrooge, but donating, by definition, is voluntary, which is the principle of the thing, and i know ppl who don't do paypal or bitcoin...just curious, i'd like to know.

Thanks...cheers Smile

No donation required . I only donate after I use a service and find it to be useful to me .

The attached may be handy for anyone using ppp or vpn.

It provides a simple desktop display of IP address(s) tun/ppp0/eth0/wlan0 in the top right hand corner of the screen.

If Conky is not already installed it may be installed via PPM or QPM prior to installing the pet.

Once the pet is installed restart X to bring it into operation.
