Use iTunes 9's Home Sharing over the Internet
Authored by: echamings on Oct 15, '09 05:55:36AM
Trying to follow the instructions here, setting up the keys was a major hassle, so much so I had to ditch that and run with a static key, which seams simpler for a 1-1 VPN solution. It was constantly telling me that I had to define KEY_DIR, no amount of defining the variable in vars or putting in the path would get it any further. No idea what was causing that.

I have a question about getting openvpn to run however. So I am at the stage where I have openvpn installed via macports, a static key, tap/tun installed, and an edited server.conf file. I am attempting to run openvpn2 in this manner: openvpn2 --cd /etc/openvpn --config /etc/openvpn/server.conf and I am presented with this:

Options warning: Bad backslash ('') usage in /etc/openvpn/server.conf:1: remember that backslashes are treated as shell-escapes and if you need to pass backslash characters as part of a Windows filename, you should use double backslashes such as "c:openvpnstatic.key" Use --help for more information.

Now, there are ZERO slashes in my config file here:
port 1194
proto udp
max-clients 10

dev tap


secret key.txt

keepalive 10 120


user nobody
group nobody


I can't get any further. Does anyone have any ideas?
