Using Openvpn Client in Alpine Linux

Installing openvpn client in alpine linux is very easy. Just follow below command

# apk add openvpn

To use it, just run the command against an openvpn configuration file
# openvpn myopenvpnconfig.file

The first time you are using openvpn client, you will probably get this error:
ERROR: Cannot open TUN/TAP dev /dev/net/tun: No such file or directory (errno=2)

What you can do is just give 666 permission to /dev/net/tun
# chmod 666 /dev/net/tun

and rerun the openvpn command
# openvpn myopenvpnconfig.file

Once you get this message "Initialization Sequence Completed", you should be able to access your remote server
