This tutorial will guide you through configuring a Point to Point Tunnelling Protocol VPN connection on
your OpenELEC system via SlickVPN.
A lot of help/advice was received from this forum topic: http://openelec.tv/forum/69-network/68991-howto-setup-openelec-to-use-vyprvpn
To get OpenVPN running on OpenELEC via a PPTP VPN connection perform the following:
Create a file called "SlickVPN-PPTP.config" in the network share:
Add the contents below to the file:
Don't forget to replace the placeholder names: SERVERNAME, SERVER, USERNAME, PPTP_IPSEC_PASSWORD
You can find your PPTP/IPSec password within your SlickVPN account under "My Account -> Manage Account"
[global] Name = SERVERNAME [provider_pptp] Type = pptp Name = SERVERNAME Host = SERVER PPTP.User = USERNAME PPTP.Password = PPTP_IPSEC_PASSWORD Domain = vpn advanced = 1 PPPD.RequirMPPE128 = 0 PPPD.RefuseCHAP = 1 PPPD.RequirMPPE = 1 PPPD.RefusePAP = 1 PPPD.RefuseEAP = 1 PPPD.RequirMPPEStateful = 0
Within your firewall you will now need to ensure that port 443 is forwarded to your OpenELEC IP Address.
Reboot OpenELEC and navigate to "System - OpenELEC - Connections" and you will see your "SlickVPN-PPTP" VPN listed. Click the connection and then click "Connect".
