TorGuard and OpenVPN Setup help
staroflaw last edited by
I am trying to setup a OpenVPN connection to TorGuard.
I have followed a few guides (How to create an OpenVPN client to TUVPN.com) and (How to create an OpenVPN client to StrongVPN) but I keep getting stuck at the same point.
Certificates - Private key. I just don't have a .key file from TorGuard.
I have tried to just use the contants of the crt file.
This is the error in OpenVPN log
openvpn: Exiting due to fatal error
openvpn: Error: private key password verification failed
is the error related to Certificates - Private key or is it my TorGuard username and password?
Not sure what to try next.
Can anyone help?
Thanks - MKStar

Ok, here is how you have to do this.
First, make sure you have a copy of the OpenVPN_Configs from your customer portal at Torguard.
- Go to Diagnostics > Edit File - Paste the contents of the .ca file for the server you want to connect to. (For example, swissca.crt.) - Enter /cf/conf/swissca.crt in the Save/Load form path input box. - Click Save - Go to Diagnostics > Edit File - Enter /cf/conf/userpass.txt in the Save/Load from path input box. - Enter your Torguard Username and Password in the input box, one on each line. Like so: username password - Click Save - Open the .ovpn file and copy the server IP address. - Go to VPN > OpenVPN > Client > + (new) - Server Mode: Peer to Peer (SSL/TLS) - Server host or address: (server IP address you copied from the .ovpn file) - Server port: 443 - *UNCHECK* TLS Authentication - Encryption algorithm: BF-CBC (128-bit) - Input the following into the Advanced field at the bottom: tls-client; key-method 2; ca /cf/conf/swissca.crt; auth-user-pass /cf/conf/userpass.txt; tun-mtu 1500; tun-mtu-extra 32; mssfix 1450; persist-key; persist-tun; comp-lzo; verb 3; - Click Save
At this point, you should be able to go to Status - OpenVPN and see it connected.
I have a unique setup with StrongVPN in addition to Torguard, so all I was able to test was that it connected successfully.I'm also unsure if /cf/conf is the proper place to store these files so they survive a reboot. I plan to do further testing after the Thanksgiving holiday. I've attached a screenshot to show that it does work at a basic level however.
I have now tested this and it works perfectly.
Lastly, for security purposes you should SSH into the box and chmod the two files you created to 400.

I was looking for instructions for TorGuard OpenVPN and ended up here. Here's a link to TorGuard's own setup guide that I found after further searching. Hope people find this helpful :)
This has worked for me after brief testing. Guide is relatively easy to follow. They don't specify IPv4 or IPv6, so I just did the configuration for IPv4 and ignored IPv6 completely.
