OpenVPN 2.1.3   

Postby vasek » Fri Oct 15, 2010 2:21 pm

So.. here is a first **beta** version of a OpenVPN.app.bin

This app.bin contains:
- openvpn_2.1.3-1_mipsel.deb and all needed depencies
- kernel tun/tap module
- sample client config file (under /apps/openvpn/etc/openvpn.conf)
- sample init script (under /apps/openvpn/etc/init.d/S90openvpn)

At first: You need upload your client/server certificates and edit sample config file (SERVER-IP, PORT, CERTNAME.crt, etc...) or modify it yourself as needed!

Features:
See http://openvpn.net/index.php/open-source/overview.html

Bugs:
Not known at this moment.

TODO:
-better init script :-)

Changelog:
version 0.3
- edited initscript for correct module initialization with newest FW (tested with 1.02.21-WDLXTV-Live-0.4.5.3)
version 0.2
- edited initscript

Thanks b-rad. It's simple, but it works, at least for my purposes ;)
Configuration depends on user's requirements - I prefer certificates in sample conf:
e.g.: http://www.annoying.dk/2007/10/14/quick-simple-tutorialhowto-on-openvpn-with-debian/

It would be nice to add features like in original init script (it scans for all .conf in confdir, print status file, logs...) or make a webend module ? :>

Hi vasek,

I have an openvpn server running in a winXP pc, and a couple of pc's connected to it, but after generating the crt, csr and key files and a clientX.ovpn file . . where do I put this files?

I copied the openvpn.app.bin file, the crt, csr and key files to an USB drive and connected it to the WDTV, what else do I have to do?

Would it be possible to make a step by step manual to get openvpn running?

Regards

I can't extract the file.
Code: Select all
cramfsck: superblock magic not found

Can you provide it as zip before you do cramfs rom please?

I think if you put in the root directory of your stick, it gets extracted to /apps . I have the same problem with standard debian cramfsck. The standard mkcramfs can make app.bins that work, though.

Working fine in 1.03.39-0,4.3.2...but not in 1.03.49-0.5.3.2 where it fails to add the tun module to the kernel, so the init script errs with:

modprobe: module 'tun' not found

Had to downgrade ASAP...OpenVPN is a must for me.

Thanks for the app...it's a lifesaver.

Thanks vasek for the quick turn around. Will report back when I get a chance to test it...will need some time to reconfigure my WDLX+.

Cheers!
