    Hello people,

    I was trying to set up OpenVPN on my Solo2 box (openvix), and had copied the four files to the etc/openvpn/ folder, but when I reboot it never gets past the openvix splash screen, and I also cannot access the box via FTP as I get this message: 'Connection attempt failed with "ECONNREFUSED - Connection refused by server".'

    Is there some way you know of that will enable me to not be refused by the box so I can remove the files I added?

    Thanks!
    Mark.

    I think a re-flash is the only option if you can not FTP

    oh damn, seriously!?
    I've never flashed the box directly before, only ever via the UI... shudder...

    reflash and restore worked fine, but now the openvpn service will not work/start.

    This forum is for images Blackhole and OpenBlackhole.

    You are running image OpenVix on your Solo2 but of cause VPN is VPN
    But you will get better support from the Vix forum or you can install
    One of the images Blackhole/OpenBlackhole :)

    Here is a link to VIX forum where they talk about the same issue you having.
