Connect to IpVanish (OpenVPN) with Manjaro, Ubuntu and etc. – Linux
This is a quick guide there will show you how you can connect to IpVanish with OpenVpn.
I am going to use Manjaro but it is almost the same way to do it in Ubuntu.
I would belive this also works in fedora, mint and etc.
First we will need to make a directory to our OpenVpn configuration and Certificates so follow the three steps below.
Open the terminal ctrl+alt+t and navigate to your home directory, remember to change user with your own username.
If you aren’t using ubuntu then skip this step otherwise you will need to install a network manager.
sudo apt-get install network-manager-openvpn
cd /home/<span style="color: #800000;">user
Create a directory for your Openvpn Configuration and certification files.
Open the folder
we are going to connect to ipvanish-US-New-York-nyc-a01. I like to keep a simple overview of the different server I connect to,
The easiest way to get a good overview is to make a new folder for each server you are going to use.
open the folder and download the server files.
if you want to connect to another server you can find a server here and replace the line after /software/configs/ipvanish-xx-xxx-xxx-xxx with the server you want to connect to.
wget http://www.ipvanish.com/software/configs/ca.ipvanish.com.crt; wget http://www.ipvanish.com/software/configs/ipvanish-<span style="color: #800000;">US-New-York-nyc-a01.ovpn</span>
Click on the internet connection icon and ->VPN Connections -> Configure VPN
To add a VPN connection click +Add
Choose Import a saved VPN Configuration.Click Create.
Navigate to /home/user/OpenVPN/ipvanish-US-New-York-nyc-a01 and Open the .ovpn file. Enter your credentials and hit the save button Again click on the internet connection icon -> VPN Connections -> And then choose the desired server.You should be connect to IpVanish now.
