    Question [VPN] Need some help....

    I have been using AlwaysVPN (www.alwaysvpn.com) on my PC and Mac. Its a free Ad-Supported VPN Service. However, can I use AlwaysVPN on my iPhone..??

    I have dug-up the config files...

    Heres the config file:
    Code:
    ###### AlwaysVPN TCP client configuration version 1.0 ####
    clientdev tapproto tcp-client
    remote cluster1.alwaysvpn.com 443
    remote cluster1.alwaysvpn.com 80
    remote cluster1.alwaysvpn.com 22
    remote cluster2.alwaysvpn.com 443
    remote cluster2.alwaysvpn.com 80
    remote cluster2.alwaysvpn.com 22
    
    redirect-gateway def1
    resolv-retry infinite
    nobind
    persist-key
    persist-tun
    shaper 50000
    ca
    
    alwaysvpn_ca.crt
    cert client_grp2.crt
    key
    client_grp2.key
    ns-cert-type server
    tls-remote alwaysvpn_s
    tls-cipher DHE-RSA-AES256-SHA:DHE-DSS-AES256-SHA
    cipher BF-CBC
    comp-lzo
    verb 1
    # up /etc/openvpn/update-resolv-conf
    # down /etc/openvpn/update-resolv-conf
    # user nobody
    # group nogroup
    # tun-mtu 1400
    # fragment 1300
    # mssfix 1300
    What I understand is, it has 2 servers, Cluster1 and Cluster2, when 1 is busy, it connects to 2. So, in the Server field, we enter either cluster1.alwaysvpn.com OR cluster2.alwaysvpn.com

    Now I dont know what to use as the username and password...

    The Client_grp2.key file has the following RSA Private key:

    Code:

    Hey,

    Two things.

    1) The config seems like an openvpn type of config. So most probably they are using openvpn internally. I dont think there is a openvpn client for iPhone available there yet. I myself use openvpn and have been looking for the client for iPhone and haven't found any.

    2) Get rid of the Client_grp2.key file contents. Thats your private key that you should not be sharing. You are essentially sharing your passowrd.

    Hope there is a openvpn client for the iPhone available soon.

    Cheers.

    Thanks for your reply. Isn't there a way to use OpenVPN using the inbuilt VPN capabilities...?
    Like loading the config. files using SSH or something..?

    You cant do openvpn but you can forward certain ports through ssh if you have a ssh server running. Entirely depends on what you are trying to achive. For eg. I am using ssh tunneling to forward vnc connection to my home computer. That way when I try to connect to localhost:5900 it actually connect me to myhomeip:5900 using ssh.

    Well, the server is not my VPN server and I am just a user on the OpenVPN server. I use it on my notebook but now want to use the VPN on my iPhone as well.
    However, I have a SSH server at home. So, you mean to say that I can connect my SSH server to the VPN server and use VPN via SSH on my iPhone....?

    Sorry if I am confusing the matter. The short answer for this is there is currently no way that I know of the connect the iPhone to a openvpn client. Only the iPhone supported VPN protocols L2TP, PPTP and IPSec are possible. OpenVPN is a different protocol not supported by iPhone Firmware upto 2.1. So untill someone comes up with an app or Apple includes that protocol support in firmware 2.2 it is not possible.

    Thanks for the clarification. Hope to see OpenVPN compatibility on the iPhone soon. or atleast some way to connect using a VPN patch or app via Cydia...

    Sounds like you're just interested in a little privacy, right? Why not just SSH into your server to reroute your http web traffic?

    I have my Mac at home configured as a SSH server. How do I reroute my http web traffic on the iPhone...?
