How I installed Openvpn on Xenial Pup Subject description: open vpn setup
Installing Openvpn on Xenialpup
I had problems downloading the files from ppm as it was very slow and seemed to freeze checking the deps. I downloaded the following debs from ubuntu xenial packages.
Install these debs then in /etc make the files
in these two files place your dns server ip's in the format
one to a line
Check for the file update-resolv-conf in /etc/openvpn
if it's not there grab a copy from the web, its easy to find one and place it in /etc/openvpn.
Make a symlink from /sbin/ip (this is already a link ) just link to it and place the link in /usr/sbin.
To enable tunneling and ipv6 open /etc/rc.d/MODULESCONFIG and amend this section to look like below. Dont forget the spaces.
#ADDLIST: if a module did not get auto-loaded but you know it is required for
#your hardware, add it to this list. Note, BootManager will read/write this.
#an entry is allowed to have parameters, replace ' ' with ':'. ex: "mmc_block:major=1
#note, list needs a space char at beginning and at end.
ADDLIST=' evdev ipv6 tun '
save the file put your vpn conf files in /etc/openvpn and reboot. This was tested using Mullvad vpn.
