    Unable to connect to openVPN server

    Hello i am going to be as more specifig as i can. I am using Kali 2.0 amd 64bit on VirtualBox 5.0.10 with host system xubuntu 14.04 LTS. I am trying to connect to vpnbook openvpn european server #1 through vpnbook-euro1-tcp433.ovpn file which is contained in the downloadable archive Other files in the archive include :


    Im running the following command on terminal as root and i get corresponding error :

    openvpn vpnbook-euro1-tcp433.ovpn

    Options error: In [CMD-LINE]:1: Error opening configuration file : vpnbook-euro1-tcp433.ovpn

    Note that other files seem to open properly and prompt me for credentials.
    Any help gladly appreciated, dealing with this 2 days now.

    What are the file contents of the vpnbook-euro1-tcp80.ovpn, vpnbook-euro1-udp53.ovpn, and vpnbook-euro1-tcp25000.ovpn files?
    This may be something you need to contact vpnbook about since two of the files are working without issue.

    When i connect to openvpn and receive success message, internet connection becomes unavailable. I mean, i can't open a single website. Is there anything i habe to do in order to fix this?

    I was getting the same error and i found out it was just a simple mistake :P .. you may be doing the same as i was.....

    So... I downloaded the OVPN files from vpnbook's site ... i extracted the zipped bundle of 'ovpn' files on to the desktop.

    I then opened an terminal and ran the cmd root@kali:~# openvpn --config "nameoffile.ovpn"
    then i get the bla bla bla error on line 1... so i went and had a cup of green tea to refresh the brain... and here is the mistake..

    Since my ovpn files are extracted on the desktop i need to run the cmd;

    root@kali:~# cd Desktop
    root@kali:~/Desktop# openvpn --config us1-tcp443.ovpn
