I want to connect to my company's VPN server, so I can access work resources.
I'm running Ubuntu Gnome 15.04, and I've been given an
ovpn-file. I installed OpenVPN and run
sudo openvpn --config ~/Downloads/client.ovpn (where
~/Downloads/client.ovpn is the path to the downloaded company OpenVPN-configuration). This seemed to connect me, but I couldn't access any of the company resources through my browser.
Puzzled, I looked at the output of the openvpn-command, and found this:
ERROR: Linux route add command failed: external program exited with error status: 2
After some Googling, I've found people with the same issue, but they seem to have access to the VPN-server in question, and adds information to that config. As it is a company VPN, I want to make sure there's nothing I can do, before I contact the IT department.
Because I know that the Network Manager of Ubuntu has support for VPN, and I tried to use it, but it couldn't load my
ovpn-file directly. That's why I went with OpenVPN, but it may be that the Network Manager is in the way? Any suggestions?
