Options error: –auth-user-pass fails with '/etc/openvpn-password.txt': No such
Just installed PFSense on a pc and have it up and running. I am trying to install PIA. I followed the directions on their site (https://www.privateinternetaccess.com/pages/client-support/pfsense) …but can not get it running. Getting the following message:
Options error: --auth-user-pass fails with '/etc/openvpn-password.txt': No such file or directory
I checked my login and password and its correct. What am I doing wrong?
You must have missed the direction on that page that tells you to create the file.
From their page:
Execute the following: echo "username" > /etc/openvpn-passwd.txt; echo "password" >> /etc/openvpn-passwd.txt
Though on pfSense 2.2.x you don't need to do that or use their "auth-user-pass /etc/openvpn-password.txt;" line in advanced options.
If you fill in the username/password boxes in the pfSense GUI, omit both of those things: don't make that /etc/openvpn-passwd.txt file and remove that auth-user-pass line from advanced options.
