[Solved] Openvpn: "Linux ip link set failed"

Post#1 by freestyler » 08 Nov 2013, 08:02

Hey, I have been trying to get openvpn to work but keep getting the same error message:

Code: Select all

Fri Nov  8 18:53:00 2013 ROUTE default_gateway=192.168.43.1
Fri Nov  8 18:53:00 2013 TUN/TAP device tun1 opened
Fri Nov  8 18:53:00 2013 TUN/TAP TX queue length set to 100
Fri Nov  8 18:53:00 2013 /usr/sbin/ip link set dev tun1 up mtu 1500
Fri Nov  8 18:53:00 2013 Linux ip link set failed: could not execute external program
Fri Nov  8 18:53:00 2013 Exiting
I am not sure what /usr/sbin/ip is meant to be but its defiantly not in the directory. Any idea's whats going wrong?
Cheers.
