    Can't connect using openvpn

    I subscribed with private vpn access they gave me these steps to configure my vpn on ubuntu , as they said they don't support fedora. I did them but still can't connect:

    In Terminal, install openvpn packages with sudo apt-get install network-manager-openvpn.
    Restart the network manager with sudo restart network-manager
    Run sudo wget https://www.privateinternetaccess.co...pn/openvpn.zip
    Extract the files from the zip with unzip openvpn.zip.
    Move ca.crt to /etc/openvpn
    Open the Network Manager on the menu bar.
    Choose add and select the OpenVPN connection type, and click Create.
    Enter Private Internet Access SSL for the Connection Name.
    Enter us-midwest.privateinternetaccess.com[*] for the Gateway
    Select Password and enter your login credentials.
    Browse and select the CA Certificat we saved in Step 3.
    Choose Advanced and enable LZO Compression.
    Apply and exit.
    Connect using the Network Manager.

    Please help i am a new to fedora.

    Step 1 and 2 translates to:
    $su -
    #yum install NetworkManager-openvpn NetworkManager-openvpn-gnome
    #systemctl restart NetworkManager
    You won't need 'sudo' in step 3 as you are already 'root'. The rest looks as if it should work. Give it a try. If you can't connect, temporarily disable your firewall to see if that helps.
    Computing is just a fad - it'll never catch on.

    Isn't open VPN installed by default in f20? Thank you

    Re: Can't connect using openvpn

    I fixed my issue by running the following commands :

    allow this access for now by executing:
    # grep openvpn /var/log/audit/audit.log | audit2allow -M mypol
    # semodule -i mypol.pp

    this came up in SElinux i guess next time i will have to start ready my notifications, SElinux has been quite helpfull so far i am loving fedora.
