Where is the OpenVPN config file?

I have been using openvpn for a few days now, and I managed to get it running on a raspberry pi, but I cant find the openvpn config file anywhere.

How can I find where it is? My main problem is that I dont know how to change my password to an one I have on my computer or another I want to use.

OpenVPN is configured via the vars file, which is located at /etc/openvpn/config.sample.

You may also have other configuration files. Run the command sudo find / -iname "*conf" to find them all.

There is no password for the test user on the Raspberry Pi (root user). If you have set up an authentication method on your OpenVPN server then you will need to use the CLI. Sudo openvpn --config vars/myconfig.ovpn If your server requires TLS then it is recommended that you generate a certificate using the script. Cd vars. Sudo ./tls-keygen You will then be prompted to enter a passphrase. Your OpenVPN clients will need to import your generated certificate.

How to create ovpn configuration file?

I have two servers, one server has a public ip address which is reachable from the outside and another server has a private ip address which is only reachable from inside the network.

I want to connect those servers via VPN. In order to do so I created a VPN configuration file in ovpn format, but I'm unable to figure out how to do so.

You can use the openvpn command line tool. If you have not installed it, you can install it via: sudo apt-get install openvpn. When the openvpn is already installed, you can install the openvpn-asn1-utils package to get the asn1 utility, which is the binary that can convert the openvpn configuration file into asn1 format. Sudo apt-get install openvpn-asn1-utils. After the installation, you can create your openvpn configuration file. For example: openvpn --config config.ovpn Where config.ovpn contains: client. Dev tun. Proto udp. Remote my-server.com 1194 resolv-retry infinite. Nobind. Persist-key. Persist-tun. Remote-cert-tls server. Ca /etc/openvpn/ca.crt cipher AES-256-CBC. Auth SHA256. Comp-lzo. Verb 3. Mute 20. The "client" directive is optional. It's needed if you want the clients to use a UDP protocol instead of TCP, otherwise, you can leave it empty.
"dev tun" is used to specify the VPN tunnel type. "proto udp" is used to indicate that you want the OpenVPN server to serve UDP packets. "remote my-server.com 1194" specifies the destination IP address and the port number (1194).
"resolv-retry infinite" is a generic option for the resolver, but you need to configure it according to your environment. "nobind" indicates that you don't want any kind of binding on the tunnel. "persist-key" is used to save the private key in the system. You'll need to use the same key when creating the certificate.
