It assumes you've already installed becomeroot; if you haven't then go and install it straight away. It's simply the way to become root these days and everyone is using it. Darling.
The shell script itself is this:
/etc/openvpn/openvpn --config n800remote.ovpn
NOTE: if your OpenVPN config file is called something other than n800remote.ovpn then you will obviously need to edit this script to reflect that.
1. Download the script, called vpn, to the documents folder on your N800:
2. Transfer the file vpn to the /usr/bin/ folder on your N800 by starting up an Xterm window and typing
mv vpn /usr/bin/
3. Lastly, make sure the vpn script is executable by typing:
chmod 755 vpn
(You shouldn't need to do this step, but it doesn't hurt and it's good to get in to the habit.)
4. That's it! Now all you need to do to start OpenVPN is start an xterm window and become root by typing:
Then, from the # prompt, type
and OpenVPN will start up.
All thanks to the wonders of shell scripting! You Linux god, you.
Actually there are other, more efficient ways of doing this, but I just like scripting.
