Autologin password file not found

Post by healer_hun » Fri Aug 18, 2017 7:12 am

I want to cerate an autologin vpn.

Created the config file, used the

auth-user-pass password.txt

the txt file contains 2 rows, the first one is the username, the second one is the password

Every time i want to connect, i get the file not found error,

I tried the following versions:

auth-user-pass "password.txt"

auth-user-pass "c:\\install\\password.txt"

auth-user-pass "./password.txt"

I use the freshest client now, but didn't worked on openvpn 2.3 either,
the OS is 64bit Win10.

Every guide i read uses this syntax, but it's obviously not working, any tips?

All are valid syntax but this is the most specific .. just make sure the file exists and that you can read it.
