bytzvpn (Rob Braxman)
Has any one had any luck installing Rob Braxman's bytzvpn on Ubuntu Touch?
I've installed VPN editor and followed his instructions to the letter but not all the options in his instructions are in VPN editor.
Yes, I asked Rob.
He said it is a bug in the network manager interface and not in his VPN.
He has suggested trying it on a computer using adb shell, connected by USB to my Ubuntu Touch.
Not sure how to do that though, as I'm a newbie at installing anything to do with Linux.
I'm trying to work out adb shell to install this VPN on to Ubuntu Touch. Rob Braxman says that is how he installed it. Any help on how to use adb, as it is all new and complicated for a beginner. Thanks.
Here is a concise introduction in how to use adb on UT.
Well, I took a look at the instructions and they may as well be in Egyptian hieroglyphs
i seem to have it installed but my problem is that I dont know how to write the command to my phone.
https://bytzvpn.com/ovpn/BytzVPN-for-Ubuntu-Touch.pdf the last page has what im supposed to write but I keep getting the message that folder Network Manager does not exist.
@w0lf3n mhm ... those instructions look a bit strange to me, but maybe I am misunderstanding something ...
sudo mount -o remount,rw /dev/sda1 /
looks wrong to me. I don't think sda1 is anything on any mobile device. maybe he means
sudo mount -o remount,rw /
just to make the root partition writable
also this path
looks surprising .. maybe on some recovery firmware? anyway when you are in Ubuntu Touch, at least on my device, I see the path
/etc/NetworkManager/system-connectionsmaybe you can try there. But I'm guessing here. I have never used vpn on UT.
I remotely remember there was some documentation about vpn configurations on UT somewhere ... or a blog post ... or forum ... or video ... maybe you can find it, I think it would help to get you started and then adapt it to braxmans setup
