In this post we will look at ways to configure and use OpenVPN.
Installing OpenVPN client and import *.ovpn (Windows) file to configure
sudo apt-get install openvpn
sudo apt-get install network-manager-openvpn-gnome
# Now goto the network settings on the system tray -> “vpn connections” -> “configure vpn” ->
# “Add” -> select “Import saved VPN configuration” from the drop down list - > “create” ->
# select the *.ovpn file -> finally, type the username and password and click “ok”.
# Now go to the network settings and connect to the configured VPN server.[/pre]
