OpenVPN client configuration – Dreambox


An example of the configuration has been tested on Dreamobx 800se hd with openpli 4.0


The first step is to download the DCCe2 client or another program to connect by Telnet protocol

Next, connect to the Dreambox by Telnet protocol and install OpenVPN client

opkg update
opkg install openvpn



Then, we have to download OpenVPN configuration files from our FTP:


After downloading and unpacking the configuration file, edit the vpnonline-password.txt file

In the file, type your username and password that will be used to authenticate the VPN connection

Username and Password, type one above the other and save the changes:



Copy one of OpenVPN configuration and vpnonline-password.txt file to:




If you have your own configuration files, remember to change the extension from *.opvn to *.conf


Then, we can run the OpenVPN client by the command:

/etc/init.d/openvpn start



If the connection to the VPN server is not established correctly, we could check the log file, which is available:



If you want to check, your public IP address after connected to our VPN server, type:

wget -q -O -|sed -e 's/.*Current IP Address: //' -e 's/<.*$//'



Special thanks for Kamil for helping to set up and tests.
