Android OpenVPN Connection Settings

Android OpenVPN Connection Settings

Tested configuration:

Android 10

OpenVPN Connect 3.2.3 app

Procedure:

Download OpenVPN Connect app from the Play Store, an official application from openvpn.net.

Stažení OpenVPN Android

The VPN server administrator should provide you with a configuration file via email or on an external URL. This file will have the .ovpn extension. Ideally, it will contain connection information and the certificates needed to connect. Download the file from your email and save it to Android. Then open the OpenVPN app (confirm access) and click Import Profile. Select a configuration file and fill in the connection details provided by the VPN server administrator. In example below we are using login/password together with key for certificate.

After importing, you can make a connection by pressing the switch. After a successful connection, you can see your VPN address and access the internal network.

Tip: If you can't access the internal network after connecting, contact your VPN administrator. Access to other networks from VPN must be allowed. The settings how to build OpenVPN on Mikrotik routers can be found on this blog.

Advanced disk cloningRating: 
0%

The classic disk cloning tool in linux is the dd command. This command creates a image of disk or extracts the contents from the image to disk. The dd tool needs to be handled carefully and you need to understand its use. We'll show a more advanced technique of creating a disc image that contains unallocated space. A classic example is when I have a Raspbian operating system installed on a 250 GB disc, but there's only a tiny boot partition (e.g. sda1) and my own operating system partition (sda2) which together have 15 GB. Instead of saving a 250 GB image, I would like to save only two partitions with 15 GB, so that the image is smaller and can be expanded to 16 or 32 GB flash.
