Unable to setup OpenVPN client.



  • I am fairly new to pfsense so im still learning my way around. I am trying to establist a VPN connection through a provider called VPNReactor. I have searched high and low and cannot find how to setup this connection. I currently use this vpn on my primary desktop and it works fine, but its not setup through pfsense, its setup through the OS itself which happens to be Ubuntu 12.04

    I want to setup the vpn in pfsense so that all of my computers can be on the VPN not just the one computer.

    Here is all the connection information I have for this VPN, its straight from their website:
    https://www.vpnreactor.com/linux_openvpn.html

    Ive seen allot of guides that mention (windows only), Im not sure if there even what im looking for, but I thought I would mention that every computer in my house runs Ubuntu, so I have no access to a Windows machine.

    Thank you in advance.



  • it'll probably involve importing the certificate from your vpn provider.

    see next post for an how to for a different provider. It's probably somewhat the same but there might aswell be some differences

  • It seems similar except I only have 1 crt file where most guides I find have a crt file and 1 or 2 key files. I tired all kinds of different setups I could think of and I'm just having no luck.



  • Anyone? I mean this should be fairly simple, but for the life of me I cannot figure it out. the VPN I go through only provided me with a ca.crt file, so I cant follow any of the two guides I managed to find for other providers which call for a second .crt file and a .key file. I keep searching high and low and all I can find is how to set-up my own VPN server, and that’s not what I'm trying to do.



  • Im still new to most network related issues, so maybe I'm using the wrong terminology when I search for how to set this up. But I have read every tutorial I could find with Google, I have read every tutorial I could find here on the forums, and I cannot find how to set-up this VPN connection. Can anybody at least point me in the right direction?
