    I doing this on the fly because I'm really unsure about what I'm doing
    I'm trying to setup this openvpn client on my router so here's my problem so far
    I got the openvpn client for windows
    but it didn't come with easy-rsa so I hunted that down
    and followed the readme
    but when I got to the command "build-ca" it said that openssl was reconized as
    a command of that sort
    can some give me a simpler walkthrough or give me some direction
    thank you

    I try and run the command "setuprsa.sh /mnt/sdb1"
    and it gives me the error " cp: can't preserve permissions of '/mnt/sdb1/easy-rsa/sign-req': Operation not permitted " and won't copy the files to the flash drive
    also every time it tries to write the crt an key info on the flash drive it say "Using configuration from /mnt/sdb1/easy-rsa/openssl-1.0.0.cnf
    /mnt/sdb1/easy-rsa/keys/index.txt: No such file or directory
    unable to open '/mnt/sdb1/easy-rsa/keys/index.txt' "
    thanks

    Probably means that your disk isn't formatted as ext2/ext3. In that case create a directory inside /tmp, and do everything from that directory. Once done, copy the resulting files to your USB disk.

    Ext4 is not supported. The kernel used by this router is too old.
