openvpn config file .ovpn from .cert and .key files...help plz!

Post by kelsini » Tue Apr 18, 2017 11:13 pm

Hello members,

i have a openvpn server on an ARCH 4.4.5-1 i686 GNU/Linux home machine.

After some problems getting a sucefull connection some time ago, with your precious help i finally made it working at 100%!
My goal was to get a connection between my android smartphone and my server in my home so i have installed openvpn for android app that works with .cert and .key files

Now im trying to use openvpn connect and instead of openvpn for android app but it works with an .ovpn config file

My (dumb) question is:
its possible with this .cert and .key files generate somehow a valid .ovpn config file so i can connect to the same server but now with openvpn connect?

Thanks in advance for the help

You can create a new config file using the same .cert and .key ..
