Install OpenVPN on Fedora#

1. Download components#

dnf update && dnf install openvpn unzip

3. Enter your login credentials#

echo "**CHANGE TO YOUR USERNAME**" >> /etc/openvpn/credentials
echo "**CHANGE TO YOUR PASSWORD**" >> /etc/openvpn/credentials

4. Start OpenVPN and see that everything works#

openvpn --config /etc/openvpn/ovpn.conf --daemon

5. Verify that the connection was successful#

Wait about a minute after running the last command, then run:

note

The service you should check is [email protected] where NAME is the name of your configuration file (without the ".conf"). So if your openvpn configuration file is /etc/openvpn/ovpn.conf you should use command as below.

systemctl status [email protected]

You should see something like:

[email protected] - OpenVPN connection to ovpn
Loaded: loaded (/lib/systemd/system/[email protected]; enabled; vendor preset: enabled)
Active: active (running) since Mon 2017-10-23 07:57:37 CEST; 2h 15min ago
Docs: man:openvpn(8)

6. Done#

Congratulations! Your device is now protected behind OVPN and will automatically connect to CloudLAN Room on reboots.
