Here's the link to the full instructions.
When I get to step 9, under the heading "9. Setup Client Config Files", it says:
Now we will configure the openVPN to work as client. Remember that we have already installed the openvpn package in client, and we have “ca.crt”, “vpnclient1.key”, vpnclient1.crt” in /etc/openvpn/
Copy the sample client.conf to /etc/openvpn.
$ sudo cp /usr/share/doc/openvpn/examples/sample-config-files/client.conf /etc/openvpn/
Edit the /etc/openvpn/client.conf.
Specify that this is openvpn client client
remote vpnserver 1194
key vpnclient1.key ...
Now start the OpenVPN in client
$ /etc/init.d/openvpn start * Starting virtual private network daemon(s)... * Autostarting VPN 'client'
$ ifconfig tun0 tun0 Link encap:UNSPEC HWaddr 00-00-00-00-00-00-00-00-00-00-00-00-00-00-00-00
inet addr:10.8.0.6 P-t-P:10.8.0.5 Mask:255.255.255.255
However, when I try to run that last command, I get the following error:
bash: /etc/init.d/openvpn: No such file or directory
I assumed that the script got subsumed by systemctl or something, so I then tried the next few:
# systemctl enable openvpn@.service # systemctl start openvpn@.service
...which I stumbled on through tab completion. Can anyone shed any light on how to proceed?
