Bash script to autoconnect

I wrote a bash script that auto connects, using my username and password in a file:

Code: Select all


sudo openvpn --auth-user-pass up.txt
I have a file called up.txt with my username on one line, then the password on the next line.
When I run this bash script, I get this error message:

Code: Select all

Options error: Unrecognized option or missing or extra parameter(s) in [CMD-LINE]:1: auth-user-pass (2.4.4)
In my .ovpn file:

Code: Select all

auth-user-pass /home/user/Documents/Scripts/Python/up.txt
