    Default VPN traffic through privateinternetaccess.com

    Hi,

    I realize that I cannot use Untangles version of OpenVPN to connect to privateinternetaccess.com. I have installed the trial and have tried a few times to connect my IPSeC VPN to Private internetaccess.com. I just want to privatize all my external traffic. Has anyone had any luck connecting to this service?

    They support IPSec. The only issue I have is that I have to enter a username and password. Is there a place to enter a Username and password?

    Those instructions are for L2TP.

    Thats something different (it just happens to often use ipsec)

    Thanks Dmorris. Appreciate your prompt reply.

    So, given this information, is there not a way to set up the IPSEC vpn to connect to privateinternetaccess.com? Is there any other alternative with untangle and this service?

    I was able to do this with DD-WRT and Tomato.. There's got to be a way to do this with untangle..

    Just scrolling through those instructions, there "may" be a a way to adapt the OpenVPN configuration to work with Untangle, but none of the other paths will work.

    Sky-Knight. Thanks for the info. Can you guide me where to set up the configuration file to set up OpenVPN as a client? Right now, I have it set up as a server.. But as a client, the configuration file that it accepts is different format.

    If you have it setup as a server, you could setup a fictitious "site" export that configuration and use it as a template.

    I'm sorry I can't offer much more help than that, I'm not even sure this can work, but it's the best shot you've got.

    Oh man.. This is going to be a daunting task.. Sky-Knight, I've tried modifying the "Template" file from the exported server file.. But any edits I do seem to fail the import process..

    Here is what .OVPN file looks like for privateinternetaccess.com

    client
    dev tun
    proto udp
    remote us-west.privateinternetaccess.com 1194
    resolv-retry infinite
    nobind
    persist-key
    persist-tun
    ca ca.crt
    tls-client
    remote-cert-tls server
    auth-user-pass
    comp-lzo
    verb 1
    reneg-sec 0

    This is what my exported UNTANGLE template looks like (I x'd out my IP address)

    client
    resolv-retry 20
    keepalive 10 60
    nobind
    mute-replay-warnings
    ns-cert-type server
    comp-lzo
    verb 1
    persist-key
    persist-tun
    dev tun
    proto udp
    port 1194
    cipher AES-128-CBC
    cert keys/untangle-4334-Cafferky.crt
    key keys/untangle-4334-Cafferky.key
    ca keys/untangle-4334-Cafferky-ca.crt
    remote xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx 1194 # public address

    I've noticed that the untangle has three key files, and the privateinternet access only has one. I'm not a complete noob, but I know that I'll need to modify this template heavily and I don't know where to start.. Given this information, does anyone have any suggestions for modifying my "Template" (The one at the bottum) so we can get the top one working as a client? I've searched around these forums and I can't find anyone who has attempted this..
