I am a new user of Untangle and OpenVPN.
I have a hardware firewall running Untangle and have the OpenVPN app installed. I am trying to configure the OpenVPN app to run as a client on a commercial VPN service provider's servers (NordVPN https://nordvpn.com/servers/). NordVPN uses OpenVPN as their primary VPN client/server configuration. NordVPN provides *.ovpn files for each of their servers. I have downloaded their ovpn files for Win v10 and attempted to import them as Remote Server connections into the OpenVPN Client tab. When I browse for and select a configuration file it comes back with a file path/name of c:\fakepath\nl34_etc....ovpn. When I hit Submit it fails and gives a java error. This is all shown in the attached png files. I am quite sure that the Win v10 part will not work but am unsure what O/S would be more appropriate for Untangle - Linux?
In the Untangle wiki it indicates that I should log in to the remote site, create the ovpn file, download it as a zip, and install it (http://wiki.untangle.com/index.php/OpenVPN#Client). In this case the *.ovpn files are already created and I am not given the option of creating the file on my own. Further, the NordVPN ovpn files are sorted out by operating system (WIn v10, OS X, Linux, Android, etc.) and stored in a zip; I have tried the Win v10 files (should I try Linux?).
I have searched this OpenVPN forum and found one other instance discussing c:\fakepath\. It was determined to be a problem between operating systems and browsers. I am running Windows v10 x64 and have tried using Chrome, Edge, and MS-IE. The other forum post also discussed the formatting of zip folders for the import. I have extracted about 10 ovpn files from the original NordVPN zip and placed them into a smaller zip file however importing it also does not work.
Any feedback would be appreciated. If anyone knows of another commercial VPN provider that can immediately configure with Untangle/OpenVPN I would like to know about it; switching is often easier than troubleshooting.
