openvpn-as-bundled-clients-19.deb

Post by netwerkingnut » Fri Oct 15, 2021 8:54 pm

# sudo dpkg -i openvpn-as-bundled-clients-19.deb openvpn-as_2.9.5-82d54e5b-Ubuntu20_amd64.deb

When I run that command, I get, "dpkg: error: cannot access archive 'openvpn-as-bundled-clients-19.deb' : No such file or directory"
I read that it's better to download the file first, then unpack and install it. I tried using # wget, but that didn't work either.

Referring to the link, https://openvpn.net/vpn-software-packages/. I couldn't use Option 1, but Option 2 did work up to line 3.
Need help please.

I just tried to run the last line from option 1 "# sudo apt update && sudo apt -y install openvpn-as" and got the following lines...

I even tried running the last line in option 2, "sudo dpkg -i openvpn-as-bundled-clients-19.deb openvpn-as_2.9.5-82d54e5b-Ubuntu20_amd64.deb"

I clicked on the orange button, "AS 2.9.5 for Ubuntu 20, 64 bits", downloaded it on this other computer, and copied onto a thumb drive hoping to copy it over to my Ubuntu Server, but I'm at a loss as to doing that from CLI. I tried to locate my thumb drive but Ubuntu Server 20.04.3 LTS apparently cannot find it.

Hello netwerkingnut,

90% of this forum post is about networking issues and therefore the installation couldn't succeed. If we look beyond that, then we get to the actual installation steps for Access Server on Ubuntu 20. There are two options. You can copy/paste the installation instructions and run those, and everything will install. Or, you can do the secondary offline installation option, which you appear to be trying. I would recommend that you do not do that. I recommend that you follow the normal installation instructions.

Go to https://openvpn.net/vpn-software-packages/
Click on the Ubuntu icon.
Copy/paste the lines in the black box and execute them line by line on your system.
Done.

Good luck,
Johan

Ok, Johan. Thank you for your response. I've identified and resolved my network issues but I'm still experiencing issues trying to get the openvpn-as to download using the recommended commands listed below...

1. apt update && apt -y install ca-certificates wget net-tools gnupg
2. wget -qO - https://as-repository.openvpn.net/as-repo-public.gpg | apt-key add - echo "deb http://as-repository.openvpn.net/as/debian focal main">/etc/apt/sources.list.d/openvpn-as-repo.list
3. apt update && apt -y install openvpn-as

For some reason, I keep getting...

-bash: /etc/apt/sources.list.d/openvpn-as-repo.list: Permission denied
