Cannot connect from Raspbian

Rate this question


Hello everyone.


I am having troubles connecting. Thing is, until today everything was fine. Now, my vpn does not connect anymore. I am trying to troubleshoot it but nothing appears in /var/log/syslog (besides the messages for start and stop of the service).


I am trying to connect with:

sudo openvpn --daemon --cd /etc/openvpn --config TorGuard.Canada.Toronto.ovpn

From the /etc/openvpn folder. tun0 never comes up, and there are no messages in the log file.


Given that `killall -9 openvpn` returns "openvpn: no process found" I think that nothing is even remotely starting.


I can connect to TG from other machines using my account (same that is on the RPi).


I tried to re-download the configuration files, re-install openvpn, but nothing seems to work. 


How can I see what's going wrong?

Hi - when running this command - does the connection just hang?


try the following:


cd /etc/openvpn/

sudo mv TorGuard.Canada.Toronto.ovpn TorGuard.conf

sudo openvpn TorGuard.conf
