enter an OpenVPN file manually

Post by Samirovic » Tue May 17, 2022 10:34 am

I allow myself to write to you because I would like to load an OpenVPN file on a router but there is no way or location to load the file directly.
so I will have to fill in the file parameters manually.

I am blocked at the level of the certificates because I have to import 6 files on the router which are:
-CA -Public Key -Private Key -TA -Preshared Key -PKCS12

The problem I don't know how I'm going to get them out of the ovpn file

here is my OpenVPN file:
dev tun
persist-tun
persist-key
cipher AES-128-CBC
auth SHA256
client
resolv-retry infinite
remote 185.60.151.17 443 udp
lport 0
verify-x509-name "xxxxx" subject
remote-cert-tls server
auth-user-pass
comp-lzo adaptive

seems to me that you only need four of the six items you list, and they are right there in plain text between the <ca>, <cert>, <key> and <tls-auth> tags.

also, as i understand it keys are private, certificates are public. meaning you had better regenerate those keys and the certificates derived from them now that the keys were exposed.

Copy everything from first part of the certificate (include BEGIN CERTIFICATE line all the way to END CERTIFICATE line)
Paste to new file (use Notepad)
Save as CA.crt – Be sure to select All as file type
Close

Open new text file
Copy the info from below
use same directions as above for what to copy
Save this file as Certificate.crt

Do the same with TA key and save it . You only need 4 keys so upload all 4 key then it should connect .



Open new text file
Copy info from below
Same instructions as above
Save this file as ClientKey.key
