VPN Manager for OpenVPN

  • All ok, very sorry, it was a credential issue! Don't know what happened!

    Cheers!

  • hi folks,


    at first nice addon, love t and works generelly fine ...but

    it works absolutly clear on my rasps with latest libreelec os (rasp 2 & 3)

    on my cubox ip4 i can get my user defined cfg configured, but it pop ups with connect, disconnect, connect, disconnect and so on..maybe a temp issue..dont know and last but not least on my amlogic box s905x, also latest libreelec image .. i can also install all addons and most of them working fine, but openvpn will not start/ connect, also i added it on the old way via autostart.sh


    why cant i start openvpn on my amlogic box, sure its a secondary image bootet via sd card ( also write it to internal), got also the same structure like other linux images, but is it a really full os on linux basic, is it possible to use openvpn on amlogic boxes?


    sorry for that questions but i searched the forum but dont find the right answer or infos of these questions..


    thx 4 feedback =O

  • I used the user defined, to get Nordvpn working, I copied some of the servers & cert files to a folder, then in the vpn config, added my nordvpn user name & password, then used the wizard, to point to the Nordvpn folder with my servers & cert files.

    The vpn starts to connect when the network starts,


    This worked on my three devices.

    Samsung UE40ES5500 H96 Pro (Coreelec), Fire TV 4K Stick (Bedroom)

    Beelink MiniMKIII (CoreELEC)

    Synology DS414 Plex Pass

    configured in the same way, got nvpn, but probably there is one step different.

    u also copied ur config in the vpn config folder? ..or u mean that u added ur files via the wizard in the manager?


    because in the same way it works on the rasp, but dont on the amlogic box..dont understsand the issue, but i will try

  • I copied server addresses & certs to a folder I created, on storage, then used the wizard to point to that directory


    then used the wizard, it will take time to work, so, just try a few servers to begin with.


    I have done this on a Beelink S905, a H96 Pro S912, & a NUC

  • Hi, Ive been using this addon for a while and Ive noticed that now my MAC address appears as 00:00:00:00:00:00 and my IP address appears to be my tunnel address. Ive uploaded my debug log from boot here


    Is there any setting I can change to get my MAC Address back and the correct IP?

  • The add-on doesn't change the MAC address. And you're connecting to the VPN before Kodi boots. I'm not entirely sure what problem you think you have here?

  • will this addon work on a enigma2 satellite receiver? the blackhole images for the vu+ comes with the kodi plugin and i am just wondering if anybody had this working / is compatible with those machines. in the end of the day they speak the same language.. thank you.

    I don't understand why you need it, but why don't you just try it. If it doesn't work, uninstall it

    The addon is changing my MAC address, subnet address, and my IP address. Disabling the addon puts my IP, Subnet address and mac address back to normal. ifconfig -a shows this output



  • No, the add-on is using openvpn to create you a VPN tunnel which by design is presenting a different IP address. It's really not changing your MAC address. You're free to find the line of code on Github that's doing that if you still believe that's the case.

  • Hello just trying windscribe vpn and i get auth failed. I have a pro account so access to all servers but fails to authenticate in all of them. Any clue? Can post log if that helps thank you

  • If the openvpn log says 'AUTH_FAILED' or 'private key password verification failed' then you've supplied the wrong credentials. If it says something else, I'll look it a log.

  • Hei having some trouble with expressvpn, is the 2038 bug still a issue?

    here is my log

    Edited once, last by Badmongo88 ().

  • Reset the provider and try again. It's trying to load the certificate from the wrong place and not finding it...no idea why

  • Hei sorry, i was using wrong username and password. it apparently has custom username and password that i was supposed to use. took me long enough to figure it out.

    Thank you for all the help, much appreciated

  • just a quick note to developer and users, ibvpn works great with this addon and it's a reliable service. thanks for your time.
