Faulty installation step by step instructions.

Post by Nemesis » Sun Apr 08, 2018 7:37 pm

Hi all!

I pretty new with openvpn (at least the server side)
And I followed https://community.openvpn.net/openvpn/w ... dows_Guide

But found out that it's not correct any longer, so I'm stuck at the last moment where I was suppose to copy the .ovpn file (which don't exist where it's supposed to :?: )

If somebody have time, maybe a rewrite of that article?

Ehhh, I must confess that I did see that, but must have been, ehhh, well I "might" maybe, ah, nevermind.
Your completely right, however the text still are outdated,
For example the dh1024pem as the instructions are referring to doesn't exist, it's dh2048.pm
Thx for getting me back on track again!
