Monster what version of Mint are you running? I am on 18.3 Cinnamon and it is too easy running Private Tunnel. What exactly do you get in the terminal when you input the path to your .ovpn file ?monsterman wrote: ⤴Tue Feb 06, 2018 12:02 pmi have 2 paid for VPNs that work ok with windows .. Hidden24 is brilliant for my work but even with IPSEC software on my Linux i i cannot get it to work
and the other Private tunnel that is based on OPENVPN i cant get that to work even with my profiles downloaded to terminal
getting very angry becayse i have to use VPN at work and cant use Linux Mint
I would suggest first re-installing openvpn - who knows, I have had weird stuff happen because a software package that was installed started acting strange or stopped working (just happened to me with Libre Office)
Code: Select all
sudo apt-get install openvpn
I just copy the profiles right into my home folder then so I don't need a path
majpooper@1150z ~ $ sudo openvpn --config Cal.ovpn (notice "Cal")
for whatever reason the space in San Jose caused an issue so I renamed the file to Cal. But the files for Dallas or Montreal are not a problem.
The other glitch I had was with DNS - some of the resolvers did not seem to work with Private Tunnel which made no sense to me. OpenDNS and Quad9 two that I really like do so I am good2go.
The last thing I would suggest is Private Tunnel support - I worked with them on the DNS issue I was having -I use dnscrypt and literally have a huge number of DNS resolvers to pick from. Anyway when I sent them my terminal output they were excellent in figuring out the problem and giving me the solution.
