Installing OpenVPN on Ubuntu 20.04

OpenVPN is an open-source VPN (Virtual Private Network) application that allows you to securely connect multiple devices over the internet. It provides a secure and encrypted connection to protect your data and activities from unauthorized access. OpenVPN uses SSL/TLS protocols for authentication and encryption, providing a reliable and secure VPN solution.

To install OpenVPN on Ubuntu 20.04, follow the steps below:

  1. Update the system packages by running the following commands in the terminal:
    sudo apt update
    sudo apt upgrade
  2. Install OpenVPN and the necessary dependencies using the following command:
    sudo apt install openvpn
  3. Once the installation is complete, you can configure OpenVPN by creating a configuration file. Open the terminal and navigate to the directory where you want to store the configuration files. Use the following command to create a new .ovpn file:
    sudo nano .ovpn
    Replace `` with the desired name for your configuration file.
  4. In the editor, you need to specify the connection settings. Here's an example of a basic configuration:
                dev tun
                proto udp
                resolv-retry infinite
                key-direction 1
                remote-cert-tls server
                tls-version-min 1.2
                cipher AES-256-CBC
                auth SHA256
                verb 3
    Replace `` with the IP address or hostname of the OpenVPN server you want to connect to and `` with the corresponding port number.
  5. Save the configuration file and exit the editor by pressing Ctrl + X, then Y, and finally Enter.
  6. To establish the OpenVPN connection, run the following command in the terminal:
    sudo openvpn --config .ovpn
    Replace `` with the name of your configuration file.
  7. Enter your sudo password when prompted, and OpenVPN will initiate the connection. You will see the logs indicating the connection status.
