AUTH: Received AUTH_FAILED control message

Post by liberty0 » Mon Nov 26, 2012 10:05 pm

I'm using CyberGhostVPN. I've literally searched every corner of the internet trying to find what I'm doing wrong. CyberGhost has multiple .ovpn files so I just pick one and connect by typing

Code: Select all

openvpn --config CyberGhostVPN_DE-Server.ovpn
(The german server) and it asks me for my username and password which I give. Then I get a Peer connection initiated with <ip address> and then I get this:

Code: Select all

Mon Nov 26 12:00:57 2012 AUTH: Received AUTH_FAILED control message
Mon Nov 26 12:00:57 2012 SIGTERM[soft,auth-failure] received, process exiting
I can't understand why I get this error. My account is active and my username and password works. I've already tried this on windows and it works fine on windows. The problem is, I really don't want to use windows. I don't understand why this is happening. Please help.

Could this be because I don't have port 9081 open? I scanned my router and it didn't have 9081 opened. I tried to vpnc it and I got a 'Connection refused'. Is it possible that a firewall is blocking it?

This question is much better asked of this CyberGhostVPN you speak of.

In any case, probably what you need to do is just use this command parameter: --auth-user-pass

Code: Select all

openvpn --config CyberGhostVPN_DE-Server.ovpn --auth-user-pass
Good luck with that.
