are you refering to this:
https://e2openvpn.com//OpenVPN Generator/

I have sent this with putty to the box and inserted the user and password, Surfshark will not connect with any locations, PureVPN and NordVPN.

My PureVPN (official) will expire soon and I got surfshark from A****bot on a deal for $20 per year
You need the generated credentials from surfshark. It's been a while since I've tested it but you can get them from here https://my.surfshark.com/vpn/manual-setup/main choose credentials.


Here is a guide to get credentials https://support.surfshark.com/hc/en-us/articles/360006143714-How-to-set-up-OpenVPN-client-on-Android-#h_01EKJ9F02Z8VXE9BZDQC7DCZ5F

Do you want to test it with my details? (it's going to expire in two weeks anyway)

Hi

I have tried again with

VPN Script Generator​

Surfshark still not connecting. got myself a months trail of IP Vanish which works OK on nearly every line.
If you are going to use VPN Config Importer, just in case you do not read full post:

You can create a file called vpn.txt with your vpn username on the first line and vpn password on the second line and copy it to the /tmp folder on your box and set Import Credentials to yes in the plugin and it will use those, alternatively highlight username and press OK and use the virtual keyboard to enter your username, then repeat for the password. NOTE: Surfshark users do not use their account username and password, log into your account and look in manual setup, you need to use the username and password in the Credentials tab.

Now use the left/right arrows to select your VPN provider, now press the blue button to save.
I still think it is surfshark username and password error both vpn script generator and vpn config importer are working with surfshark.

Thanks, yes now, I also think that the surfshark user and pass is at fault (The thing is same surfshark details work on my Formuler Z8 and chromebook with no problems)

. "NOTE: Surfshark users do not use their account username and password, log into your account and look in manual setup"

I tried this also, do you think it is because my account is via "Acco**bot" and not direct from Surfshark?

the Formuler Z8 and chromebook are android they use apk app with normal surfshark username and password so it is still wrong password if you can login to surfshark account on the internet then there is nothing wrong with the password you just need to use the generated one

yes they are quite long for the file called vpn.txt for vpn config importer you would add it like:

W*rUJxurUKCAvh****LdKHXB
rMaMsr3*****qmx4j5Auuu

And do you enter these details into VPN manager or the ones supplied by acc***tbot?
you enter those into vpn manager those are the generated ones, the acc***tbot one is the one use to log into surfshark webpage account and android or windows apps.

Hi Urie, Thanks, inputted the long user and password, works now with Surfshark (tested it with Boston USA server (49 Mbits), changed it back to London TCP 73 Mbits) tried my "VPN Check Bouquet" channels. All seems good. THANKS AGAIN!:smiley:

Well done good to hear you got it working (y) the surfshark username and password setup can be confusing. :smiley:
