i am trying to establish a VPN connection using OpenVPN. I think have set up the VPN server correctly. I followed this instructions.

From the server i have received the files ca.crt, ca.key, client1.crt, client1.csr, client1.key and raspberripi.ovpn

What have i done so far? I have installed openvpn and network-manager-openvpn. Wnt to the Network icon at the to right corner > VPN > Configure VPN > Create > Import from existing configurations

There i picked the raspberrypi.ovpn-file. All settings seemed correct so i saved the connection. But it fails to connect. It gives me the message "Connection could not be established because the network-connection caused a timeout"

I am sorry if the labels are not exactly as on your version of Ubuntu. Mine is in German and I translated them :P

here is the content from the raspberrypi.ovpn file:

dev tun
client
proto udp
remote le-morri.selfhost.bz 1194
resolv-retry infinite
nobind
persist-key
persist-tun
ca ca.crt
cert client1.crt
key client1.key
comp-lzo
verb 3

My Ubuntu version is: 13.04

I hope you can help me establish the connection.
