- Download your OpenVPN Connection pack from the TryHackMe Website
2. Open a terminal on your Linux machine
3. Navigate to the directory you downloaded the Connection Pack to (
~/Downloads by default)
sudo openvpn <name-of-your-connection-pack>.ovpn to connect. You will need to substitute the name of your connection pack in place of "<name-of-your-connection-pack>". For example, for me, it would look like this:
sudo openvpn MuirlandOracle.ovpn.
If the connection has worked successfully, your terminal should now be filled with text, and look something like this:
Notice the "Initialization Sequence Completed" at the bottom of the screen.
Leave this terminal active. Open a new terminal and use that to start hacking!
When you want to close your OpenVPN connection, switch back to the original terminal and use Ctrl + C to stop the process.
