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 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 the two personal settings files (vpn.cert and vpn.key) from the “Your apps” page or the “Delegated apps” page and put them into the same folder as the MyCrypNet.conf file. 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.
