Anonabox Router OpenVPN Setup

Updated on: 2017-07-09 13:22:06 UTC

Introduction

Our VPN for routers immediately protects your internet privacy and security while giving you full internet freedom and instant access to content streaming.

Connect every device in your entire home or office with a Plug & Play SaferVPN Router.

Before setup, make sure you have:

  • A working Internet Connection.
  • Anonabox Router that supports OpenVPN. 

In order to setup OpenVPN connection on your Anonabox router, follow our step by step guide detailed below:

Configure the OpenVPN Connection

  1. Enable ssh.
  2. Connect to the router ssh root@192.168.19.84
  3. Create a file for the username and password called authuser:

    cat > /etc/openvpn/authuser « EOF safervpn username password EOF

  4. Create a new interface for the VPN.

    cat » /etc/config/network « EOF config interface 'Safer_VPN' option proto 'none' option ifname 'tun0' EOF

  5. Copy ca.crt to the router.

    cat » /etc/openvpn/ca.crt « EOF paste the ca.crt contents here EOF

  6. Copy Wdc.key to the router.

    cat » /etc/openvpn/Wdc.key « EOF paste the ca.crt contents here EOF

  7. Create a generic .ovpn connection file. Use the oven contents downloaded from Safervpn site.

    cat » /etc/openvpn/SaferVPNgeneric.ovpn « EOF client dev tun proto tcp persist-key persist-tun ca ca.crt tls-auth Wdc.key 1 cipher AES-256-CBC comp-lzo verb 1 mute 20 route-method exe route-delay 2 route 0.0.0.0 0.0.0.0 float auth-user-pass authuser auth-retry interact ifconfig-nowarn EOF

  8. Connect to the VPN openvpn –cd /etc/openvpn –config /etc/openvpn/SaferVPNgeneric.ovpn –remote usnj1-ovpn-tcp.pointtoserver.com 80 &

 

Notes: You can Run the command at startup by pasting the following command before exit 0

openvpn –cd /etc/openvpn –config /etc/openvpn/SaferVPNgeneric.ovpn –remote usnj1-ovpn-tcp.pointtoserver.com 80 &

With the config files in place you can create the VPN connection by creating a custom command.

To get to eh custom commands page in the admin interface, click the system dropdown, then the custom commands link.

The command in this case is:

openvpn –cd /etc/openvpn –config /etc/openvpn/SaferVPNgeneric.ovpn –remote usnj1-ovpn-tcp.pointtoserver.com 80

You can also make a custom command to kill the VPN process on the same page. This creates one button to both start and stop the connection in the interface.
