OpenVPN Failing

When I try to connect to the openVPN, it says it had a fatal error and couldn’t execute. I had an older Linux version running and it would work on there but today I downloaded the 2020.4 version and now I can’t connect.

What is the error message?

Are you running sudo before you try to open the OpenVPN (Kali 2020 has decided you need to run sudo a lot before you can do anything usefull, when the old versions were a bit more permissive)

First question - are you running this as sudo / su or root?

i have the same issue, im not running as root and when i typed sudo mohan10216.opvn it just keeps on saying an error

If that’s the full command you’re running it won’t do anything.

“Sudo openvpn FILE”

Use the full command
“sudo openvpn your_vpn_file”
