How to install MyCrypNet on Linux®

If you want to install MyCrypNet with a GNOME environnent, have a look here.

Prerequisite: have a MyCrypNet access already created. You can create one here or ask for a delegation to somebody who already has one.

Step 1: Download and install the software

From a package repository

For “Debian-like”: sudo apt-get install openvpn resolvconf

From the source code

Download the source code. Download

tar -xvzf openvpn-latest-stable.tar.gz

cd openvpn-latest-stable

apt-get install liblzo1 or yum install liblzo1-devel

./configure --prefix=/opt/openvpn --enable-strict --with-ssl-headers=/usr/include/openssl --with-ssl-lib=/lib64 --with-lzo-headers=/usr/include/lzo --with-lzo-lib=/usr/lib64


make check

make install

Step 2: Download the settings file

Download the MyCrypNet.conf file in /etc/openvpn. MyCrypNet.conf

The profile will be installed globally.

Rename the file to have multiple simultaneous profiles, always in the /etc/openvpn folder.

Step 3: Download the key and certificate

Download your two personal authentication files (vpn.cert and vpn.key) from the “Your apps” page or the “Delegated apps” page in /etc/openvpn.

In case of multiple profiles, rename these files according to the previous step and rename them also in the configuration file itself (the settings cert and key in MyCrypNet.conf).

Step 4: Run OpenVPN

Start OpenVPN :

sudo systemctl start openvpn@MyCrypNet

You are connected to the tunnel !

To start OpenVPN automatically at boot :

sudo systemctl enable openvpn@MyCrypNet

Final step: Check the connexion

Check your new IP: Whatismyip

Erase the MyCrypNet.conf, vpn.cert and vpn.key files outside of the /etc/openvpn folder.
