DD-WRT - How to locate the TLS Auth Static Key V1 in an OVPN file

Postby sanderwaltter » Thu Jun 02, 2016 5:20 am

Hi everyone,

I am not a computer expert or anything but after a number of google searches I have finally managed to run my own OpenVPN service using a VPS Debian Server. I am connecting to the VPS OpenVPN Service using the OpenVPN (client) console in PC and Tunnelbrick in Mac both with the help of the OVPN file that was generated out of the Debian OpenVPN server. Everything works perfectly!

Now, I'd like to connect my DD-WRT Router to my VPS OpenVPN Server so that I can have the Wi-Fi at home permanently connected via VPN. Again, I have just googled some tutorials to learn how to do it and this is the one that I found particularly easy to follow: https://www.astrill.com/knowledge-base/ ... uters.html

The tutorial asks me to extract 3 certificates + 1 key from my OVPN file however I cannot find the TLS-Auth Static Key V1 with the same format shown on the tutorial. My OVPN file contains only 2 certificates + 1 key.

I was wondering if someone here could perhaps enlighten me up on how to do it.

Here it is an extract of my OVPN file:

client
dev tun
proto udp
sndbuf 0
rcvbuf 0
remote 121.121.44.15 1194
resolv-retry infinite
nobind
persist-key
persist-tun
remote-cert-tls server
comp-lzo

You are not using a --tls-auth key file ..
