how to install torguard vpn on kali linux?

Rate this question



i am a noob with linux.


running kali linux


followed these instructions:

Setting up an OpenVPN client for Ubuntu/Debian/Mint, CLI edition.

These instructions do not use Network Manager.

For the purposes of this tutorial we’ll presume you’ve been given your TorGuard zip file from our downloads page here.

Install the requisite packages:

sudo apt install openvpn

Unzip your config file in your home directory:

cd ~
unzip TorGuardPRO.zip

Move all files to /etc/openvpn/

sudo cp ~/TorGuardPRO/* /etc/openvpn/

Re-name the .ovpn config files to .conf, Example: server.ovpn to server.conf, run the bellwo command to rename them all to .conf.

cd /etc/openvpn

rename -v ’s/\.ovpn/\.conf/’ *.ovpn

Run your configs like so:

cd /etc/openvpn/
openvpn server.conf

For stopping and starting the openvpn service, use the commands below:

sudo service openvpn start or stop or restart




At the: rename -v ’s/\.ovpn/\.conf/’ *.ovpn  command


i recieved the following error:

rename -v ’s/\.ovpn/\.conf/’ *.ovpn
Unrecognized character \xE2; marked by <-- HERE after {
#line 1
<-- HERE near column 15 at (user-supplied code).

and i don't know where to go off of from here.

Hi, just rename any of the configs to .conf, for example:


cd /etc/openvpn

mv TorGuard.Belgium.ovpn TorGuard.Belgium.conf


then connect like so:


openvpn TorGuard.Belgium.conf

This is super-simple now.


Ubuntu is based on Debian, as is Kali Linux now.  


There is an Ubuntu download, which is actually a Debian Package.  


Just download the latest Ubuntu install, and from your bash shell, in the same directory as the downloaded .deb file issue the following command:

dpkg -i ./torguard-latest-amd64.deb 




it is as simple as that.  If you have created a non-root user account, you probably already know to prepend that command with the sudo command such as:


sudo dpkg -i ./torguard-latest-amd64.deb 


This worked for me on an up-to-date Kali Linux 2.x rolling system on the 11th of April, 2016.


The icon to launch the application is then available under the Applications menu - under "Usual Applications" >> "Internet"


after you launch the application, you probably want to select TCP rather than UDP, and AES 256 CBC for your encryption method.  Once you select where you want to connect to - and try to connect, you will be prompted for your TorGuard credentials.


Once you are connected - open a web browser and go to ipchicken.com to verify that the IP address you are connecting from is actually the one that has been given to you by TorGuard.


Happy pseudo-anonymity!
