Subject description: I have installed the pet but the client while appearing in the menu do not start
 

I have installed GADMIN-OPEN-VPN client and it correctly appears in the menu under NETWORK. However, when I click on it nothing happens. I have also installed OPENVPN but it does not appear and I do not know how to locate it.
I am on Puppy Thar 6.0.
Thank you for any help you may offer.
Carlo

Hi Carlo,

I haven't used any VPN on puppy till date

What happens when you run the VPN client from command line?

Hello "Shadow",
thank you for your reply. Please note that I am no expert here although I am trying to learn.
I did install the VPN client and I then find it in the menu, but when I click on it nothing happens. I cannot try from the terminal because I cannot locate the file (where it has been installed).
I abandoned the idea to use Gadmin-openvpn and went to OAST Vpn as suggested by HideMyAss website (http://wiki.hidemyass.com/OAST_OpenVPN_GUI).This is because I have an account with HMA and they offer easy-to-use configuration files (opvn format). After a couple of mistakes, I was able to install the client. However, it does not seem to find the connection to the internet, while I am normally surfing. I think I am missing something or I need to change some parameters about the connection, but I have no idea where to start. Please note that the client does not connect to the internet, even before importing the configuration files.
Would you be able to suggest a solution?
Your help is greatly appreciated.
Carlo

Hi Carlo,

I am afraid i cannot offer any advice on any VPN stuff

Quote:

I have not used Puppy Tahr 6.0 either, so i do not know which window manager it uses

However, on a couple of instances i found myself in a situation similar to yours
I had installed some piece of software which had a non-functional menu entry
I had to dig up the executable from the menu configuration file (jwm-config or icewm config etc) and run that executable from command line as a starting point for my investigation

Hope this helps at least a bit
Let us wait until some one with more expertise can pitch in

Carlo, get rid of that stuff and take the direct route. I gather you've *paid* for their service, correct?

Hello Semme, thank you for your reply and sorry for the delay in answering. I did not get any notice that there was a reply.
Getting to your point, to be honest, I am a little "shy" with scripts. In any case I have followed your suggestions and got an error message about "tokens". Any idea?
Thank you again
Carlo

Well, you PAY for their service. Assuming you've done the right thing and opened a request, what did they suggest?

Thank you Semme,
I have not opened a request with them, as I assumed the problem was in the connection. I will ask them and let you know. For the time being thank you for your help.

But it IS the connection that's in question. If submitted today you should have something to work with by tmrw.
