I have configured my VPN session with my opvn file. I am being prompted for a password, but the password I am using to log into my web account is not working. Any ideas?

Hey,

Thanks for reaching out, have you tried copy/pasting the password? also are you running openvpn command as root?

Regards.

Yes to both. I copied and pasted, and I am actually logged in as root (bad practice, I know) in a kali VM. I notice in the ovpn file there is not a user name. Is the user based on the file name itself?
