Setting up OpenVPN in Windows

Postby admin » Fri Apr 03, 2009 11:59 am

For more information on how to install the windows GUI and client see http://openvpn.se/

Next you need to set up the configuration file.
Here is an example:
Code: Select all
dev tap
remote 88.80.xx.xx
float 88.80.xx.xx
port XXXX
comp-lzo
ifconfig a.b.c.d 255.255.255.0
route-gateway 88.80.xx.xx
redirect-gateway def1
secret key.txt
cipher AES-128-CBC

Change the port number XXXX and the IP address a.b.c.d to the one you have received from PRQ.

You also need to setup the static key file with the key you got from us. Name it key.txt and save it
in your OpenVPN configuration directory along with the configuration file.
Here is an example:
Code: Select all
#
# 2048 bit OpenVPN static key
#
-----BEGIN OpenVPN Static key V1-----
xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
-----END OpenVPN Static key V1-----

You might also need to use our nameserver if your ISP does not allow your tunnel IP to use theirs.
The nameserver you need to use is 88.80.8.3 when running over the tunnel.

tja!

Kan bara tilläga att jag fick lägga till:

route-method exe
route-delay 2

efter cipher-raden i min configfil för att d skulle funka på min Vistaburk, efter visst googlande ;)
