Missing VPN Plugin

Post#1 by AbhayF18 » 08 May 2021, 15:13

I have been using Porteus v5.0 rc2 KDE for the last year. I am facing a problem that I can't use any VPN. When I imported a *.ovpn file and when I clicked on connect, it showed a missing VPN Plugin notification. Please help me on how to install this.

I failed to start OpenVPN from Network manager.
But there is an easy way to do it:
Create client.conf and copy it (as root) into /etc/openvpn
Copy certifficates and keys (as root) into /etc/openvpn/certs /etc/openvpn/keys

To start OVPN:
su
openvpn /etc/openvpn/client.conf

example for client.conf:

Finally, I installed protonvpn-cli using pip3 and its speed was atleast faster than free OpenVPN servers. :)
