For security, it's a good idea to check the file release signature after downloading.
Linux Notes (using RPM package)
If you are using a Linux distribution which supports RPM packages (SuSE, Fedora,
Redhat, etc.), it's best to install using this mechanism. The easiest method is to
find an existing binary RPM file for your distribution. You can also build your own
binary RPM file:
rpmbuild -tb openvpn-[version].tar.gz
Once you have the .rpm file, you can install it with the usual
rpm -ivh openvpn-[details].rpm
or upgrade an existing installation with
rpm -Uvh openvpn-[details].rpm
You can install from cmmand line through yum utility
yum install openvpn
Linux Notes (without RPM)
If you are using Debian, Gentoo, or a non-RPM-based Linux distribution, use your
distro-specific packaging mechanism such as apt-get on Debian or emerge on Gentoo.
It is also possible to install OpenVPN on Linux using the universal ./configure method.
First expand the .tar.gz file:
tar xfz openvpn-[version].tar.gz
Then cd to the top-level directory and type:
Installing the configuration files
Copy all the files, that are sent to you in the package by Solvpn, into /etc/openvpn
After this your /etc/openvpn directory should have files like:
Start OpenVPN Client
Start the client by running
openvpn /etc/openvpn/<your login>.conf
When it asks you for login and password, enter the ones provided in Solvpn connection
You should now be connected. Test your connection by pinging some IP and also going
to a web site in your browser.
