Using PIA


I've contacted PIA for the openvpn certificates and all that, so that will work.
But what would happen if I tried to run the PIA Linux installer in Slack? Has anybody tried it? I'm afraid to cuz I just spent hours getting this up and running and don't want to blow it up...ha ha

This is the ZIP file containing the openvpn configuration files you need: https://www.privateinternetaccess.co...pn/openvpn.zip
I never tried their installer, it is not needed if you have openvpn installed. And installing NetworkManager-openvpn helps a lot too.

Thanks, but apparently I don't have the right "VPN plugin" - so where/what is that?

I have my PIA configured through OpenVPN without NetworkManager (I don't use it at all and prefer to stick with the rc.inet1.conf and wpa_supplicant.conf method). My /etc/openvpn/openvpn.conf contains:

Code:
at /etc/openvpn/openvpn.conf 
client
dev tun
proto udp
remote ca-vancouver.privateinternetaccess.com 1198
resolv-retry infinite
nobind
persist-key
persist-tun
cipher aes-128-cbc
auth sha1
tls-client
remote-cert-tls server
auth-user-pass /etc/openvpn/login.txt
auth-nocache
comp-lzo
verb 1
reneg-sec 0
crl-verify /etc/openvpn/crl.rsa.2048.pem
ca /etc/openvpn/ca.rsa.2048.crt
disable-occ
script-security 2
route-noexec
mssfix 1430

up /etc/openvpn/iptables.sh
down /etc/openvpn/update-resolv-conf
And I have the .pem and crt files that are from the zip Alien linked above. My login information is located in /etc/openvpn/login.txt with my username on the first line and my password on the second line. Finally, I have openresolv installed, because I want to use my normal DNS when not connected to PIA.
