First of all, you should download the OpenVPN configuration.It can be downloaded be from any service provider of your choice, but for this blog, I will be using the vpnbook for the sake of simplicity.
After clicking Create, you will be prompted to choose the OpenVPN configuration file.Go ahead and show it the .openvpn file of your choice.Quick info: UDP is faster but can result in data loss and, TCP is more reliable.The Vpnbook instructs you to use TCP if you cannot connect to UDP due to network restriction.I am choosing vpnbook-us1-udp53.openvpn and importing it.However, you can import any one of the four files.
Kali Linux is the most advanced penetration testing distribution with a number of tools. While using these tools a measure of anonymity is required. Today we are going to see how to spoof your IP address in Kali Linux. First, check your IP address by visiting any website which shows your IP address ( ). Then go to the site www.vpnbook.com.
When setting up an OpenVPN server, users need to create a Public Key Infrastructure (PKI) which is detailed in the Easy-RSA article. Once the needed certificates, private keys, and associated files are created via following the steps in the separate article, one should have 5 files in /etc/openvpn/server at this point:
With the release of v2.4, server configurations are stored in /etc/openvpn/server and client configurations are stored in /etc/openvpn/client and each mode has its own respective systemd unit, namely, openvpn-client@.service and openvpn-server@.service.
One can have multiple, concurrent instances of OpenVPN running on the same box. Each server needs to be defined in /etc/openvpn/server/ as a separate .conf file. At a minimum, the parallel servers need to be running on different ports. A simple setup directs traffic connecting in to a separate IP pool. More advanced setups are beyond the scope of this guide.
Run openvpn /etc/openvpn/server/server.conf (as the root user) on the server, and openvpn /etc/openvpn/client/client.conf (as the root user) on the client. Example output should be similar to the following:
To troubleshoot a VPN connection, start the client's daemon manually with openvpn /etc/openvpn/client/client.conf as root. The server can be started the same way using its own configuration file (e.g., openvpn /etc/openvpn/server/server.conf).
To start the OpenVPN server automatically at system boot, enable email@example.com on the applicable machine. For a client, enable firstname.lastname@example.org instead. (Leave .conf out of the configuration string.)
For example, if the client configuration file is /etc/openvpn/client/client.conf, the service name is email@example.com. Or, if the server configuration file is /etc/openvpn/server/server.conf, the service name is firstname.lastname@example.org.
To make the server push routes, append push "redirect-gateway def1 bypass-dhcp ipv6" to the configuration file (i.e. /etc/openvpn/server/server.conf)  of the server. Note this is not a requirement and may even give performance issue:
These scripts are maintained by OpenVPN. They are client.up and client.down, and they are packaged in /usr/share/openvpn/contrib/pull-resolv-conf/. The following is an excerpt of a resulting client configuration using the scripts in conjunction with the down-root plugin:
Make sure that the systemd-resolved service is configured and running. Also, since openvpn 2.5.0-3 scripts are running as openvpn user instead of root. Thus, add a PolicyKit rule to allow OpenVPN systemd units to call DBus with SetLinkDNS:
The default systemd service file for openvpn-client does not have the --writepid flag enabled, despite creating /run/openvpn-client. If this breaks a configuration (such as an i3bar VPN indicator), simply change openvpn-client@.service using a drop-in snippet:
3. Adımda VPN kullanarak farklı bir lokasyondan ip adresi alacağız. Bunun için www.vpnbook.com adresinden istediğiniz lokasyonla alakalı dosyaları indirebilirsiniz. Ben Kanada lokasyonu için belirlenen zip dosyasını indirdim ve dosyayı açtım. Bunu aşağıdaki komutlar yardımıyla yapabilirsiniz.
The username and password for openvpn connection is different from your control panel login. You can change the service username and password in Security manual. You can generate a random login username and password.
I created a script here to automate fetching password & zip files from vpn websites such as vpnbook.com, extracting the ca, cert, and key data from the ovpn files, and updating the opvn files so the certs should just import for you. 2b1af7f3a8
