Hi just changed my OS to Ubuntu 12.04. Followed the instructions however every time I try to import one of the OVPN files downloaded I get an error message : "The file 'AirVPN_CH-Virginis_UDP-443.ovpn' could not be read or does not contain recognized VPN connection information: . Not sure what I am doing wrong. By the way I am new to linux environment.


Thanks for nay help!

if you use network-manager, please make sure you follow the instructions, in particular when they say to tick "Advanced Mode" and tick "Separate certs/keys from .ovpn files", because nm does not support embedded OpenVPN configuration files.


Kind regards

Hi, make sure openvpn and networkmanageropenvpn are installed  (sudo apt-get install command).

Download and extract the files, (best to move 3 files ca.crt and user key and the other file, into

/etc/openvpn (use sudo mv filenames /etc/openvpn in command line).

Finally open network manager, import the server you want, then fill in the 3 files requested by going to them in the /etc/openvpn directory seperately.

I had a little trouble at first but I can now do it my sleep, persevere, google a bit, Airvpn is brilliant.
