How to Configure OpenVPN Protocol on Armbian with Orange Pi?

Recommended Posts

Hey all, I am having a problem in finding the proper instructions for Armbian and Open VPN to configure. Does anyone have any resources or instructions?

Willing to install a new distro if theres more support. Just to let you know, I use Ivacy VPN as a Client.

Thanks!

It is created for Raspbian Jessie which is Debian Jessie with a kernel (hardware features) special for Raspberry Pi. If script is not updated to run on Raspbian Stretch you might have the same problems with Armbian Stretch. We provide Debian Jessie but since it's old technology and officially EOL I don't recommend to use it.

 

VPN is a hardware independent service which can run virtually on any Linux.

 

I recommend you to use DigitalOcen tutorials since they are good quality. And generic. As OpenVPN is. The first hit is installing it on Ubuntu Bionic which is bleeding edge technology with possible problems ... Debian Stretch as a base is a way to go.

Use Debian Stretech based images. Perhaps it also runs on Ubuntu.

You can easily find a distro with far less.

 

 

 

I don't understand why you shot down the pivpn.io option
I have it on my Orange Pi Zero and it's running like a champ

 

Simple easy install and easy to use .ovpn files it generates

Since I don't use it I don't know if there are any issues with Stretch. I am sure it works well with Jessie.
