OpenVPN VU+ Enigma2 Quick Setup Guide

By Ten Below

This guide was created using the following but it should be easy enough to follow & adjust if required to work for all images & vpn providers.

Machine: VU+Solo2
Image: OpenATV 6.1 Custom Build by Ten Below
VPN Provider: ipvanish

Step 1: Download your vpn provider openvpn config files
Login to your vpn account then look for a link to download openvpn configs, for ipvanish this is found under the Server list tab.

Step 2: Preparing the config files for use in enigma2
Open the zip file containing your configs inside you will see many files but we need only 2 these are ca.ipvanish.com.crt and any one ending with the extension .ovpn (pick one matching the server you want to use).

Extract both to your desktop then rename your chosen .ovpn file to Client.conf then open this file in a proper editor such as Notepad++, add to this file the parts below in RED.

client
dev tun
proto udp
remote atl-************
resolv-retry infinite
nobind
auth-nocache
persist-key
persist-tun
persist-remote-ip
ca ca.ipvanish.com.crt
verify-x509-name atl-********.com name
auth-user-pass login.txt
comp-lzo
verb 3
auth SHA256
cipher AES-256-CBC
keysize 256
tls-cipher TLS-DHE-RSA-WITH-AES-256-CBC-SHA:TLS-DHE-DSS-WITH-AES-256-CBC-SHA:TLS-RSA-WITH-AES-256-CBC-SHA
auth-nocache : Disables caching of user password
login.txt : This is the final part of preparing the files, in Notepad++ click new file enter your vpn username on the topline then your password directly below it then click file save as and enter login.txt as filename.

Example

Step 3: Install OpenVPN & upload configs.
Connect to your VU+ with telnet then enter the following.
Code:
opkg install openvpn
Restart Enigma2 when install is complete.

Connect to your VU+ with FTP go to /etc right click & choose create new folder.
Name the new folder openvpn then upload the 3 files inside the newly created folder.

You can now enjoy plugins such as iptv player, kodi ect without restrictions, at this stage you may find the following plugins useful for checking the ip of your VU+.

Am I right to assume this requires the VU+ box is always on ? Also: other devices in the local network are not VPN protected.
Much better solution is to have the OpenVPN (server) in the router, and VPN client in the PC / box.

Agree but not all routers allow vpn to be installed though when possible it is the best solution.

Bonjour, novice en la matiere, je souhaite installer un vpn sur mon Uno 4K SE (image BlackHole installée / Enigma 2). Dans votre exemple, vous utilisez IPVanish. Je ne parviens pas à recuperer les bons fichiers avec OpenVpn - Private Tunnel.. Avant de souscrire, cela fonctionne t-il aussi avec d'autres de type ExpressVPN ou NordVPN ou CyberGhost par exemple ?

[QUOTE = "SPI2000, post: 93345, member: 52159"] Hello, novice in the matter, I want to install a vpn on my Uno 4K SE (image BlackHole installed / Enigma 2). In your example, you use IPVanish. I can not recover the right files with OpenVpn - Private Tunnel .. Before subscribing, does it work with other ExpressVPN or NordVPN or CyberGhost for example? [/ QUOTE]
I have used CyberGhost in the past & was ok there.
