    • Help setting up Haegene/transmission-openvpn with a custom vpn

      Hi,

      I'm trying to set up my expressvpn account and i cant figure out how to use docker.

      Under the "Using a custom provider" on - hub.docker.com/r/haugene/transmission-openvpn

      "Add a new volume mount to your docker run command that mounts your config file: -v /path/to/your/config.ovpn:/etc/openvpn/custom/default.ovpn"

      I don't understand how to upload/input my .ovpn file.

      Also, how would i go about running as script? to be more specific how would I run the "adjustConfigs.sh" to auto configure my vpn setting. I have my .ovpn file in a folder on my server. Do I just input adjustConfigs.sh as an environmental variable and set the value to the source folder?

      I've never done it... but it looks like what it's telling you to do, is add a volume mount for your vpn file.... You should be able to do that from the webUI. When setting up the container (or by modifying a currently running container)... You'd need to make sure your .openvpn file is on your NAS in a folder where you can find it.

      Scroll down near the bottom where it says Volumes and Bind Mounts.
      Volume.. put the path to your .ovpn file.
      Container Mount... It looks like you would put /etc/openvpn/custom/default.ovpn
      Then the + to save.

      Is there some reason you are just married to this VPN? There's a lot of good ones on that list that work w/ little effort. I know many of us here use PIA and IPVanish. I've had PIA for several years and have always been happy with them. Technodad has mentioned in his videos he uses NordVPN, so I'd take that as a pretty decent endorsement.

      Frankly rather than going to the hassle you're going to... I'd sign up for some free trials on the ones above that are fully supported.. and just switch. That's just me however.
      Air Conditioners are a lot like PC's... They work great until you open Windows.
