Pi VPN client only

Fri Nov 18, 2016 3:38 pm

Hello,

I'm looking to connect my Raspberry Pi 3 to a remote OpenVPN server. All the blogs I see is how to setup OpenVPN server on my Pi. All I need is the VPN client so I can connect to a VPN server. Any advice or pointers for me on this?

Thank you.

You have to use an OpenVPN client as it states in the OpenVPN info. Just do a search. Tunnelblock is a good one for Windows and Mac OS-X.

bro, the OP said a client, not a server.

On the client:

Code: Select all

sudo openvpn --config /<location of ovpn file>/<yourvpnprofile>.ovpn
You have to leave it running on the client for it to maintain the connection.
