How to setup Openvpn client

I tried to add the following in ovpn profile, but it shown invalid hostname and IP. also second option but cant connect.

  • home1-openvpn-server.at.remote.it:30000
  • home1-openvpn-server.at.remote.it 30000

Please give me more to go on, such as proof that your OpenVPN server is running.

e.g. what is the result of:

sudo netstat -lpn | grep ?dp

And show how your remoteit Service is configured.

Here are some other instructions
Install remoteit on the Pi which has OpenVPN installed. You’ll have to consult a tutorial about how to install and configure OpenVPN. I’ve tried it and it’s fairly complicated so I don’t have any specific suggestions.

OpenVPN is configured for UDP port 1174 by default.

In the remoteit web admin panel, add a service:

From your Windows machine, make a peer to peer connection to this Service. This will give you a repeatable connection point of the form 127.0.0.1:port.

Put this into your client side OpenVPN profile.


Note, this example just shows where those values would go. They are not examples of remote.it connection server/port.

Let me know if you have any difficulty with this.
