This is a tutorial on how to instal the " Private Internet Acess " vpn on your Kali machine, keep in mind they don't fully
support Kali like they do for other versions.
Step 1: Getting Necessary Packages
you need to install openvpn packages if you haven't already, topen the terminal and put in this code:
apt-get install network-manager-openvpn
(you can copy the code, then right click in terminal and paste, Ctrl + v does not work)
after that, hit enter to run the code.
Step 2: More Commands! Yay!
same way as before, copy or type it then hit enter!
Step 3: CHANGE PLACES!!! -the Mad Hatter
mv openvpn.zip /etc/openvpn
that puts it in its own directory, now you need to go to that directory with:
and then run the command:
Step 4: Easy Part, GUI
now we need to click the network manager, then VPN connections, configure/add VPN...
click [ADD +] click the drop down menu, and set the type as OpenVPN.
Make sure you are on "VPN" tab, not "IPv4 settings".
Connection name: (you can put whatever you want here)
For Gateway enter " us-east.privateinternetaccess.com " (no quotes or spaces)
Type: set the type as Password
put in your Private Internet Access username and password.
CA Certificate: CA.crt is in the folder that you unzipped openvpn.zip in.
click (none) and direct it there, if you're following word for word it will be in /etc/openvpn
click [Advanced] and check the box next to "use LZO data compression"
click [OK] [Save] [Close]
You're good to go!
now click network manager > vpn connections > your connection
it will notify you when you are connected.
(note: there are lots of great things to do after this, some are here: http://www.blackmoreops.com/2014/03/03/20-things-installing-kali-linux/ I have no affiliation with them, but it's a good read.)
if you choose saved for password, you may have to enter your password for keyring.
Good luck out there!
