Want to use OpenVPN client in router instead of software!

Post by foctober » Thu Oct 13, 2011 10:27 pm

I have the VPN Tunnel ($7.00 / mo) service from https://www.tunnelr.com/index.php that uses OpenVPN Client on my Windows 7 PC and Viscosity on my Mac to connect to my VPN service. The problem is that only one device can use the VPN at a time.

I have this router http://www.buffalotech.com/files/produc ... 00h_DS.pdf, it uses the latest DD-WRT firmware so it has OpenVPN Client right in the router's GUI.

My VPN service provider gave me these files to import into the desktop client software, some used for win, last one used for mac:


What info do I take out of those files and put into the OpenVPN client on the Router GUI so that my router connects to the VPN instead of using client software?

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

hi there,

you must (somehow) *upload* certificates on your router
either by copy-paste the contents of .ca , .crt .key files
or by uploading through it web gui.

then you must edit .conf file and copy the settings they gave you
inside web gui of ddwrt..

in pfsense for example you copy the contents of certs into the gui
then you configure the openvpn with the same parameters they gave you..

Maybe another member with more expirience in ddwrt may help you out more.
