    I am running Geexbox on my Cubox i4Pro and would really like the option of a VPN. I cannot seem to find how to do this. Any ideas or help would be greatly appreciated.

    Sorry to ask what will seem like a stupid question. I am a complete newbie to Geexbox and indeed Linux.

    How do I install the package? Do i need to reinstall the full Geexbox build as well? I should say that I have downloaded the file onto a USB stick as I am unsure whether I can access the file from my Cuboxi running Geexbox.

    Also is there an instruction manual on Geexbox or is it just a matter of playing with it?

    hum, if you are completly newbie, it won’t be so easy :/

    using a remote access, you can install it executing :

    opkg install http://download.openbricks.org/cuboxi/openvpn_2.3.2-2_armv7.opk

    Then you need to configure vpn by hands

    Hi, imnew @ geexbox with ip4, but first look is very interesting 🙂
    But i also want to use openvpn, i already installed the package over ssh, but i cant find the openvpn folder, where i can put the conf file in, there is also no startfile in the default folder for editing the autostart..

    Sry but is geexbox so different? Sry i got idea.
    Openelec is a bit laggy on the cubox and geexbox runs fluid 🙂

    I hope someone can help me, how i can configure the vpn package.
    I also use winscp to have explorer optik, drag and drop, searching filez etc.

    Thx 4 feedback

    Hi there,

    I recently installed openVPN on my cubox-i4 Pro with the above mentioned package.
    I’m trying out nordvpn.com as the VPN provider.

    It almost works, except that it looks like the TUN/TAP kernel module isn’t included in geexbox.

    I get the following error:

    
    Wed May 20 13:41:14 2015 OPTIONS IMPORT: --ip-win32 and/or --dhcp-option options modified
    Wed May 20 13:41:14 2015 ERROR: Cannot open TUN/TAP dev /dev/net/tun: No such device (errno=19)
    Wed May 20 13:41:14 2015 Exiting due to fatal error
    

    Any ideas to get this working?

    There should be a cubox-i kernel with CONFIG_TUN=m available in a few days…
