You can now configure PureVPN on Fedora 31. Consider the following tutorial if you wish to set up PureVPN on Fedora 31 using the OpenVPN protocol:1 Before beginning to set up OpenVPN on a device with Fedora, you need a premium PureVPN account and the required OpenVPN configuration files from here. The OpenVPN configuration files can be obtained from the link below using any browser.
2 A new prompt will appear. Check the Save File box and click OK. The files are going to be available in your Downloads directory.
3 Go to your Downloads directory, right-click the ZIP archive and select Extract Here.
4 The next step is to install the config files, which will require sudo privilege. Copy and paste the contents of the Zip file to directories that override Selinux, such as /etc/pki and /opt.
Follow the guidelines below when Selinux doesn’t allow Network-Manager to access certificate files that are needed by OpenVPN:
Enter command syntax : sudo cp -rp <sourcepath_to_file> <destination>
sudo cp -rp New+OVPN+Files /opt/
Change permission for the OpenVPN files and certificate to 644 so that everyone has access privilege
Enter command syntax : sudo chmod 644 <path_to_files/*>
sudo chmod 644 New+OVPN+Files/*
5 Now, follow these steps:
6 Click the + icon to add a VPN connection and select the Import from File option.
7 Go to the newly created directory with config files in the Opt folder. Select the file with .ovpn extension, and click the Open button.
Now, use the following settings:
Once done, click the Folder icon next to CA Certificate and add the ca.crt.crt file. Hit the Apply button
8 Select the VPN connection you have just created, and toggle the button on to connect to PureVPN.
9 Viola! You are now connected.
