Qubester I went down your path as well but wasn't sure where to go after.
But couldn't really get off step 2 of the Qubes instructions...primarily due to
my linux skills.
Can anybody help?
I got a NetVM working but with out a kill switch and credentials exposed it
just doesn't work for me.
Looking at the Qubes instructions, I was able to create the "sudo mkdir
/rw/config/vpn" but then things fall apart.
My specific questions from the VPN instructions that keep derailing me,
specifically the basic commands needed are:
1) How do I copy files to: "Copy your VPN config files to /rw/config/vpn"?
Each VPN service supplies configs in their own way, but usually there
should be some option to simply download a zip or tar.
In PIA's case they don't make it easy to find where the openvpn configs
are, but they're there:
Any of the three *ip, *tcp or *strong-tcp will work.
After downloading the file, unzip the contents to /rw/config/vpn. For
$ cd /rw/config/vpn
$ sudo unzip ~/Downloads/openvpn-ip.zip
There are multiple configs (one for each region) so pick one and copy it
to the config filename that will be used:
$ sudo cp "US East.ovpn" openvpn-client.ovpn
At this point you can continue with the doc instructions, but I'd
recommend switching to the method at
It comes with an installer and you'll notice the instructions are pretty
2) "Create a file in the /rw/config/vpn folder with your credentials and using a
directive"...how do I do this?
This is done automatically by the Qubes-vpn-support installer. To do it
manually, just "sudo nano /rw/config/vpn/pass.txt" and add your PIA
username and password, one on each line.
3) I haven't gotten further but suspect I'll have more questions.
Anybody have a source for a tutorial...I have googled the h3ll out of this and
more questions then answers.
I'm preparing new vpn tunnel support in Qubes and a simplified doc to go
with it. This should be available within a week or two. In the meantime
I suggest using Qubes-vpn-support at the above link.
