    This is confusing. I am in beta mode and cannot find a VPN Client button on the Firewalla app. Can you be more clear as to the steps required to access this Button?

    The Box & App should both be in Beta to use this feature.

    Go Settings->Advanced -> Beta program, switch on "Join Box beta program"

    If you are using iOS, make sure you have installed the latest version App 1.31(15) from TestFlight. 

    If you are using Android, the feature is coming shortly after, please be patient.

    Was wondering when the ability of username and password authentication be available?

    I downloaded the OpenVPN profile from my NordVPN account and imported it into the Firewalla app. The issue is that your app allows saving the NordVPN profile password but not the username so I cannot connect.

    @Daniel, @Alamosoft

     

    Sorry for the trouble. We are working on it. No committed date on that yet. We have a bunch of features coming together...

    Is there an example on how to create a new profile if I want to use a 3rd party VPN provider?

    @Augustus,

     

    Usually the ovpn file should be provided by the 3rd party VPN provider instead of writing your own.

     

    And you can import the ovpn file or create a new profile (and copy/paste the content). We'll make a video on that soon.

     

    And please be aware that this is still beta and username+password is not supported yet.

    Hi Firewalla Team,

    if I SSH into /home/pi/.firewalla/run/ovpn_profile

    could I place an ovpn and auth file in that folder that the firewalla device would recognize?

    I have a 3rd party VPN but it requires Username and Password.

    Not really. There are a couple of other places need to update.

     

    I suggest you wait for our next release, which natively supports the username and password.

     

    The release will be pushed to alpha branch in next 1-2 days.
