I feel like a burden trying to get VPNs working, seems like half of my posts are around vpn related issues but I can’t figure out why its not working from reading the forums and logs so find myself at the mercy of the community again
With significant amounts of help from @fepitre I was able to get qtunnel working using PIA vpn service and was able to replicate my sucess by setting up a few more proxyVMs for different PIA servers, then i tried doing the same thing for ProtonVPN, didnt work, tried again, didnt work. I thought it might be due to incorrect login/password (as the IKEv2 login/password are pretty long) but then I tried pasting in the login into directly into the tunneluserpwd.txt file and still didnt work.
I took a look at the journalctl -u qubes-tunnel output and its quite long (longer than the output i got from pia, 1.4M so larger than the 512k that most pastebins allow, what I posted I had to trim) but in it i saw lines like " systemd: qubes-tunnel.service: Succeeded" yeah!? but also a few warning lines related to … i have no idea.
after looking at the log a bit more, it seems the reason it is so huge is it kept restarting the qubes-tunnel service? like literally 233 times, thats not normal right?
