    hi
    update to my past post on openvpn
    after reading page after page on topic I came across a post regarding openvpn in the blackhole image so decided to install it in my receiver, after an hour of finding my way around the image much more different from vix I managed to navigate my way to the openvpn program, adding the files I already made I set about running openvpn and bingo started running which wasn't happening on vix image. now I'm not so happy with blackhole image so decided to revert back to vix but decided not to recover from stored backup instead loading any files like cccam - settings as I went along.
    after setting the basic stuff back in the receiver I ran the openvpn for the first time which asked if I wanted to install to which I said yes, after making a openvpn file in etc folder (etc/openvpn) I put the same config files I put in the blackhole image, started openvpn and hey what ...it started running.
    So those of you trying openvpn and seeing no response it could be worth saving files like settings ccam etc and reinstall the latest image without using backups then navigate your way to the openvpn file and allow it to install and open then set about adding your files making sure you make a openvpn in etc folder, it just may help some

    1. Go to the client support pages of NordVPN site and download the OpenVPN Configuration Files (Default)
    2. From the zip file we need any ovpn file
    3. Edit the name of the ovpn file to client.conf.
    4. Open the client.conf and modify the line "auth-user-pass" so it reads "auth-user-pass password.conf" (without the quotes)
    5. Create a password.conf file
    6. Add the info to the password.conf file so the username and password are on separate lines.
    7. Place all 2 files (client.conf, password.conf) into the openvpn folder on your box (etc/openvpn)
    8. Reboot your vu+
    9. Start the service from the settings - network - openvpn
    10. ssh to your vu+ and check the ip with this command wget -qO- http://ipecho.net/plain;echo
    This should do the trick.

    read #2 we thought we were the only 2, I was gutted i had gone with Nord (im happy now) because everyone was with vanish or pia vpn
    that wouldnt post a .conf file.
    i spent about 40hrs on this between STELLA'S over the last couple of days and wasn't 100% it was there the above guide wasn't mine to post.

    LOL forgive my punctuation been having a stella celebrating
    Thank you for this guide, everything worked, BUT for some reason all the content of the folder openvpn is being deleted after few minutes i don't know how !!! any ideas please on how to fix this

    cheers
