Hey Everyone,


Just learning the ropes with vpn's, got it working on my mac and my android phone, but having a bit of trouble with my arch linux laptop.  I feel like I am just missing a step somewhere, but I following the instructions for the terminal setup (couldn't get the app to work, I'll play with it later).  I made the config files, run 'openvpn configfile', it does its thing and I get the 'Initialization Sequence Completed'.


But thats as far as I got becuase after that I have no internet. I feel like it must be a firewall issue or something isn't configured right. Anyone have any ideas?

Maybe it would be easier if you tried the portable experimental version of the Eddie client . It's under "other versions" on the DL page.


Maybe your DNS got changed or something, so you could try check out resolv.conf.


nano /etc/resolv.conf



Maybe Staffs post on DNS will be relevant for you eventually as well, I don't know.


I don't know if any of this helps, but might as well try lol.

i get a connection with terminal mode OpenVpn, but it is much slower than i am used to under Android, Ubuntu and Windows. Maybe i need to change servers? And/Or the port. Or UDP, not TCP.

But how to fiddle stettings. the Man page of Open VPN is impressive but 3000 pages dont help, so i ask your advice. Should I brutally 'Pstop Openvpn' in terminal and start Openvpn again for each different server, I guess?

Is there an ip check command?   And importantly, is there a warning signal somewhere for dropped service while connected (or just searcrch 'my ip' in the browser to periodically ch\eck un Ovpn?
