GWN7000: Sample OpenVPN Client Configurations


I recently purchased the GWN7000 and setup the OpenVPN server functionality for use with remote users. The remote users are utilizing Windows 10 and the standard OpenVPN client software. However, I have yet to get a successful OpenVPN client configuration file established. Does anyone have any sample OpenVPN client configuration files that would be willing to share?


AFAIK, the .ovpn file is generated by the OpenVPN server. It generally includes the TLS certificates and private key.

You can try searching Google for one. I also tried configuring oVPN with my 1and1 Cloud Server but didn’t get the routes to work, so I look forward for someone who has a working VPN configuration!


Hi, all,

I just made a widnows and a linux OpenVPN client temaple for connecting GWN7000 server. It can’t include certificates, so you still need to generate them from GWN7000 and download to your client.
Please let me know if it solves your problem, or any log avalible from client/server if it still fails.


I am still having issues to connect my Open VPN laptop to GWN7000
The template was very useful to troubleshoot but still having issues, below are the logs from my Tunnelblink
I am having a Mac and my router is issuing the new firmware)

This is repeated time to time.
To configure the OpenVPN server and create the certificates I used the GWN7000 User Guide for
And for the client conf, I use your Linux template with the proper IP (ddns) change and adding the ca, the client certificate and the client key path to the ones I downloaded from GWN7000

I am using the latest stable release of Tunnelblick 3.7.7 (build 5150)
Please, let me know if more information is needed to troubleshoot.

Looking forward to your reply
