    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.

    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:
    [ Only registered users can see the bbcode. Click Here To Register... ]
    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.

    That is up to you, do reliable free providers exist?

    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.
