I have been trying to get my OpenVPN to work after being with My Private Network for years and without hassle. The company merged with another company called Le-VPN since February.
I have been back and forth with Le-VPN trying different servers and dns servers to figure out why I cannot connect to no joy.
I have Netgear WNDR4300V1 router running V.3.0-R37305 std build.
I have tried with another router and seems to have the same issue.
Not sure if it is the build problem?
The router doesn't say connected in status vpn but is accessing the internet fine. So it has not changed my ip address to the VPN ip address.
MPN had a different setup which I thought was harder as you had to put in scripts.
Has anyone successfully upgraded from MPN to Le-VPN ?

I noticed that when I copied the certificates from the Le-VPN site and pasted them into Notepad Plus (on a Windows PC) all the certificats had a Carriage Return / Line Feed combinationa tthe and of each line. If I were you I would check my cerfificates...
Download the (free) Notepad Plus zip file from https://notepad-plus-plus.org/download/v7.6.3.html and extract the contemts into a folder of your choice. Run the NoteradPlus exe file.
Cut and paste the contents of one of your certificates from your VPN settings into Notepad Plus
Click on the View option on the menu bar. select Show Symbol then Show All Characters.
You should now see block at the end of each line in inverse colours. If they say CRLF (Carriage Return -Line Feed) they need to be changed to the Linux Preferred character, LF.
On the menu bar, click on Search, then Replace
Click on the options Wrap Around and in Search Mode,.. Extended (\n, \v....)
In the Find what: field, type these four characters: \r\n
In the Replace with: field type these two characters. \n
Click Replace All.
All the end of line characters should now be changed from CRLF to LF.
Now copy the new certificare text from Notepad Plus and paste them back to your VPN settings.
Repeat for all other certificates and keys.
On your Serviices / VPN tab, click on Apply Settings. Your VPN will restart.
Check to see if your VPN now works.
