config file openvpn

Post by smyr »

Hello.

Sorry for asking this but I need a quick answer and while searching the database I couldnt find anything similar that answered my question... so here goes..

I got an account from Expressvpn and they have instructions for all kind of systems except Openwrt so when I try to configure the openvpn client settings by uploading a config file or enter the files manually it doesnt work.

The cert and keys files are fine but I guess its the config file that Gargoyle cant read. Its a ovpn config file...

dev tun
fast-io
persist-key
persist-tun
nobind
remote xxxxxx-cluster1.expressnetwork.net 1194
remote-random
pull
comp-lzo
tls-client
tls-remote server
ns-cert-type server
verb 3
key-direction 1
route-method exe
route-delay 2
tun-mtu 1500
fragment 1300
mssfix 1450
<cert>
-----BEGIN CERTIFICATE-----
MIIDUTCCArqgAwIBAwIDC6miMA0GCSqGSIb3DQEBCwUAMIGFMQswCQYDVQQGEwJV
U


and goes on with certs and keys...

ends with
-----END CERTIFICATE-----
</ca>


How do convert it into the "correct" format so Gargoyle can read it? Maybe theres even a script or something that can do this for me... ;)

Thanks!
Happy holidays from Sweden!

Gargoyle OpenVPN is not set up to use "Providers"

Usually the main problem is "username" as "password" is not an option with the Gargoyle GUI

I understand some people have got it to work using command Line?
