I installed OpenVPN on both windows 7 and ubuntu 12.10. In both cases I have the same problem. I have a .ovpn file and a .crt file which I need to connect to the vpn. I also have a username/password combination. When I run OpenVPN (in admin/sudo mode) using those files I get the error:
AUTH: Received AUTH_FAILED control message
I am however certain that my username and passowrd are correct. My question is now whether there is something else that can cause an AUTH failure?
In ubuntu I run openvpn from the terminal (since running it from the network manager applet did not work either).
The contents of the .ovpn file are as follows:
client proto tcp dev tun remote virtualwall.test.ibbt.be 443 persist-key persist-tun # uncomment if you use a proxy: # http-proxy-retry # http-proxy proxy2.intec.ugent.be 8080 cipher DES-EDE3-CBC # Triple-DES comp-lzo ca /home/kv/Documents/vwall-ca.crt script-security 2 auth-user-pass # uncomment if you use linux cd /etc/openvpn/
