I have my own private VPN server setup with my ASUS router, it can be either PPTP or OpenVPN and have my own.ovpn file generated for use by the client.
Up to now when away from home I connect to my VPN server with either Windows or Android and its very easy, I enter my server address, username and password on the client device and its done, the device is connected and traffic is now routed through my own VPN tunnel.
I now have an RPI with Jessie installed and would like to use it and connect as a client to my VPN server as I do with Windows and Android devices. I've installed openvpn and followed this guide, amongst many
http://unix.stackexchange.com/questions ... heezy-lxde
to try and manage a new VPN connection with NetworkManager as it seems the most straightforward, but I can get it run on my RPI 3. I've installed everything from the guide above and NetworkManager doesn't appear in my applications, and when I type in a terminal
nothing happens, no error message and NetworkManager doesn't start.
Code: Select all
I know I must be something very simple that is wrong, but I'm pulling my hair out and just need pointing in the right direction please.
Thank you for any help.
