Simple OpenVPN connection setup on Ubuntu 18.04 Bionic Beaver Linux -


The aim is to provide a simple to follow core instruction on how to configure VPN tunnel without much configuration and technical mumbo jumbo.

This is a companion discussion topic for the original entry at


Robert Wortman

attempted to follow instructions to setup vpn network but keeping errors on some commands ie Command ‘inet6’ not found, did you mean:

command ‘inetd’ from deb openbsd-inetd

Try: sudo apt install . I’m new to setting up a VPN server



I tried this and made the mistake of doing the first part (server) instead of the 2nd part (client) now I can’t connect to my VPN. So how do I undo all of this?

sudo apt purge openvpn
sudo apt autoremove
sudo apt autoclean

I think this will work for you :slight_smile:
