Alright, so I've managed to get OpenVPN to work on the Nano.. I even managed to get it to connect to PIA.

However the moment the connection establishes I lose the internet. I'm pretty sure this is a routing issue. 

But I'm unsure of what I need to add to the config file to fix the issue upon connecting. This is the result of the IP config table after it establishes a connection. 

Destination     Gateway         Genmask         Flags Metric Ref    Use Iface
default       UG    0      0        0 tun0
default         UG    0      0        0 wlan1 UGH   0      0        0 tun0      *      UH    0      0        0 tun0       UG    0      0        0 tun0 UGH   0      0        0 wlan1     *        U     0      0        0 br-lan     *        U     0      0        0 wlan1     *      UH    0      0        0 wlan1

I would like to connect to the router using Wan1, and then connect to Wan0 with my laptop or other internet devices during traveling and still run my traffic over an encrypted VPN. 

any suggestions?

I ran the command before and after I connected the VPN. The command gave no output either time.

can you run this command and post the output?

# iptables-save | grep -e FORWARD -e POSTROUTING

@g1eagle can you please explain

1. How you got openvpn working on the nano?
In Darren's video he does ssh into the pineapple then " wget http://swupdate.openvpn.org/as/openvpn-as-2.1.1-Ubuntu14.amd_64).deb" onto the pineapple.

then uses 'dpkg' while ssh'd into the pineapple -- only problem is dpkg is not part of the installed applications on the pineapple, only 'opkg' is which doesn't install the deb file...so confused as to how he got that file installed.

when I enter:

dpkg -i openvpn-as-2.1.1-Ubuntu14.amd_64.deb

I get:
-ash: dpkg: not found


2.What process did you follow to get PIA working?
I can't seem to get the config file loaded, although it could just be because openvpn's deb file isn't installed.
When I enter openvpn as a command it seems to recognize it as an installed application though - but I can't call up help, it says "Usage message not available"


If anyone can point me in the right direction I would appreciate it!:huh:
