This tutorial will describe how to alter the default password for your OpenVix installation.
Before we begin the tutorial you must ensure you have downloaded an application called
which will allow you to Telnet into your OpenVix installation.
The default username and password for your OpenVix box is: root / vuduo.
To update the password for your system please follow the steps below:
Open the PuTTY application and enter the IP Address of your OpenVix box into the "Host Name (or IP address)"
section and ensure Telnet is selected as the "Connection type".
Once the details have been entered click "Open".
You will be prompted for a username "root" and the password "vuduo".
To update the password type "passwd" and hit "Enter".
It will then ask you for a new password and for you to confirm the new password:
Type "Exit" and hit "Enter" to exit the PuTTY connection to your OpenVix box.
Your OpenVix box is now secure with your own password!
To get OpenVPN running on OpenELEC we need to perform 5 basic steps:
1) Start by creating a file called "SlickVPN-OpenVPN.config" in your OpenELEC network share:
Add the following to the contents to the file and don't forget to replace the placeholder names: SERVERNAME, SERVER.
Name = SlickVPN-OpenVPN
Type = openvpn
Name = SlickVPN-OpenVPN
Host = gw1.iad1.slickvpn.com
Domain = vpn
advanced = 1
OpenVPN.ConfigFile = /storage/.config/vpn-config/vpn.config
OpenVPN.Port = 443
2) Create a file called "vpn.config" and add the following contents:
# file containing username and password
# equivalent to pull, tls-client
# redirect all outgoing traffic to the vpn gateway
# verify the server certificate for authenticity
keepalive 10 120
# ssl certificate / key used for tls
3) Create a file called "pass.txt" and add your SlickVPN username and password on separate lines:
Rather than copying the configuration contents below I recommend you copy the contents of the "SlickVPN_IAD.ovpn" file.
4) Create a file called "CA.cert", open this in a text editor and add the following contents:
Your OpenELEC network share should now look like this:
Within your firewall you will now need to ensure that port 443 is forwarded to your OpenELEC IP Address.
If you're unsure on how to do this you will need to Google how to do this for your specific router!
Reboot OpenELEC and navigate to "System - OpenELEC - Connections" and you will see your "SlickVPN-OpenVPN" VPN listed. Click the connection and then click "Connect".
