Currently using Ubuntu Server 14.04 (so no GUI, all terminal) sitting inside VirtualBox, and am currently trying to get it to connect to Private Internet Access using their VPN configs found here (which can be downloaded without an account for those wanting to take a look at their opvm files).
After downloading and extracting the zip file, I run for example "sudo openvpn --config France.opvm". This is the output.
Tue May 13 03:37:06 2014 UDPv4 link local: [undef] Tue May 13 03:37:06 2014 UDPv4 link remote: [AF_INET]22.214.171.124:1194 Tue May 13 03:37:06 2014 WARNING: this configuration may cache passwords in memory -- use the auth-nocache option to prevent this Tue May 13 03:37:07 2014 [Private Internet Access] Peer Connection Initiated with [AF_INET]126.96.36.199:1194 Tue May 13 03:37:09 2014 TUN/TAP device tun0 opened Tue May 13 03:37:09 2014 do_ifconfig, tt->ipv6=0, tt->did_ifconfig_ipv6_setup=0 Tue May 13 03:37:09 2014 /sbin/ip link set dev tun0 up mtu 1500 Tue May 13 03:37:09 2014 /sbin/ip addr add dev tun0 local 10.135.1.10 peer 10.135.1.9 Tue May 13 03:37:09 2014 Initialization Sequence Completed
Now, from what I understand, last line says connection is established. Seconds and third last limes show OpenVPN creating the IP routes. If I run ifconfig, I can see there's a new tun0 interface with a correct IP.
tun0 Link encap:UNSPEC HWaddr 00-00-00-00-00-00-00-00-00-00-00-00-00-00-00-00 inet addr:10.135.1.10 P-t-P:10.135.1.9 Mask:255.255.255.255 UP POINTOPOINT RUNNING NOARP MULTICAST MTU:1500 Metric:1 RX packets:0 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 frame:0 TX packets:6 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 carrier:0 collisions:0 txqueuelen:100 RX bytes:0 (0.0 B) TX bytes:336 (336.0 B)
My issue is now however is that I have no internet access. Ping doesn't work and simply times out. What is it I'm doing wrong that doesn't allow me to have a connection? Any help is appreciated.
