OpenVPN on Linux – save password

My Linux box is secure, so why do I need to remember the extremely difficult to remember password for one of my OpenVPN connections? I don’t.

On Linux, I create a new file, with two lines in it, the first – username, the second – password:

admin
mysecret

Then, in the ovpn file used for the connection, I add this to the bottom:

auth-user-pass new_filename

Now when I connect, it logs me in automatically
