I want to use OpenVPN on Ubuntu. The following three files are provided:

  • client.conf
  • tccg-ca.crt
  • tccg-ta.key

What are the steps to configure OpenVPN in Ubuntu by using these files. I have installed OpenVPN at /etc/openvpn.

In network-manager when I choose OpenVPN to create a new connection, it asks for User certifcate, CA certificate, Private Key and Private Key password. I am totally blind for next steps. How I can proceed further?

What do you have in your client.conf file? – Peter Krejci Jan 18 '12 at 20:29

I saw you do have client.conf file,
just copy these 3 files into "/etc/openvpn/" folder(remember use sudo).
sudo /etc/init.d/openvpn start client
the last 'client' must be your .conf filename

sudo /etc/init.d/openvpn stop is for stop the current openvpn
