OPENVPN errors when connecting on Mac OSX/Tunnelblick

Post by jedisha »

Hi guys,

so I've tried multiple times to set up OpenVPN on my Raspberry Pi B+ following the instructions on dietpi.com/software.

Upon connecting on Mac OSX via Tunnelblick I get the following pop-up:

Use 'down-root' plugin for OpenVPN?
The configuration file for 'DietPi_OpenVPN_Client' appears to use the 'user' and/or 'group' options and is using a down script ('Do not set nameserver' not selected, or there is a 'down' option in the configuration file).

It is likely that restarting the connection (done automatically when the connection is lost) will fail unless the 'openvpn-down-root.so' plugin for OpenVPN is used.

Do you wish to use the plugin?


regardless of the answer I choose I am left hanging with the message Waiting for server response...
I was wondering if anyone else has had problems setting this up using Dietpi. I have a NOIP dynamic dns as well as a changeip dynamic dns (both the free versions)

I have tried both separately to see if the problem lay with either of them however the response is the same for both.

Furthermore... last week, upon installing OpenVPN I was able to connect successfully to my Pi VPN server using the NOIP dynamic DNS however I received the prompt from Tunnelblick saying that the IP had failed to change...

Any help greatly appreciated....

thanks so much guys!

Sorry guys.... just to clarify I have forwarded ports 443 and 943 (TCP) as well as 1194 (UDP) and here is the final line in the connection log from Tunnelblick which repeats...

2016-06-01 23:40:19 write UDPv4: Can't assign requested address (code=49)

thanks again,
p
