Introduction

Here we will configure openvpn client the following way:

  • we will use the daemon(the init script)
  • we will get an ip from the openvpn server and not from a dhcp server

run the following command:

  • sudo apt-get install openvpn resolvconf

create the /etc/openvpn/client.conf with the following config

  • remote 192.168.1.1
    client
    dev tap
    nobind
    tls-client
    ca /etc/openvpn/ca.crt
    cert /etc/openvpn/ubu.crt
    key /etc/openvpn/ubu.key
    pull
    verb 4
    remote-cert-tls server
    #auth-user-pass
    redirect-gateway
    #lladdr 00:FF:00:00:00:24
    #route-delay 5
    up "/etc/openvpn/update-resolv-conf"
    down "/etc/openvpn/update-resolv-conf"

replace 192.168.1.1 by your server's ip address, and replace ubu.crt,ubu.key and ca.crt by your own certificates

run the openvpn server to try:

  • /etc/init.d/openvpn start

then add it to the services that will be started at startup if you want:

  • update-rc.d foobar defaults
