I've looked across this forum, and on the internet and found many people asking what seems like similar questions to myself. However none of the solutions posed seem to solve my problem.
I haven't got a lot of experience with Ubuntu so please forgive any ignorance, but I've recently got a dedicated server and installed Ubuntu 14.04 on it. I'm using a Windows 10 machine and have access to the server via SSH.
I am attempting to install OpenVPN on the server and I'm following the instructions in this guide. However when I get to the point where it says:
Copy the following files to the client using a secure method:
/etc/openvpn/ca.crt /etc/openvpn/easy-rsa/keys/client1.crt /etc/openvpn/easy-rsa/keys/client1.key
As the client certificates and keys are only required on the client machine, you should remove them from the server.
I get stuck. How do I actually access this
/etc folder? I normally access files using an FTP client, logging in as a user I created when I first setup the server, but this folder does not appear. Further the root login details I was emailed don't work when trying to login via FTP.
I would appreciate any help provided in as simple to understand terms as possible. Thanks in advance.
