I am having an issue configuring AirVPN SSL to work with Tunnelblick and Stunnel on my macbook. I got it to work about a month ago, but I can't remember how I did it.


I am pretty sure the issue is stunnel, but I can't figure out how to configure the proper files.


1. I have imported the .ovpn into tunnelblick

2. moved the .ssl and .crt into stunnel file

3. changed the .ssl in stunnel to .conf


when I try to connect to the server via tunnelblick i receive this error: TCP: connect to [AF_INET] failed, will try again in 5 seconds: Connection refused


If you need any further information or files, please let me know. Thank you in advance for your assistance.

Hi cephasiii,

Welcome on the forum.


Have you tried this:

Our society is run by insane people for insane objectives. I think we're being run by maniacs for maniacal ends and I think I'm liable to be put away as insane for expressing that. That's what's insane about it.

Yes, I have tried that site to no avail. When I connect took the VPN no packets are transferred in our out. I think it is a misconfigured stunned.conf, but I'm not sure.
