OpenVPN - Setup macOS Client

Via the next script you can create the needed OpenVPN configuration file for the client with using the OpenVPN APP TunnelBlick on macOS.

DATE=`date +%d-%m-%Y\ %H:%M`
MSDATE=`date +%Y-%m-%d\ %H:%M:00`


if [ -n "$1" ]
then
export CLIENT="$1"
if [ ! -f /etc/openvpn/${CLIENT}.crt ]
then
echo "You specified a non existing client name : $1"
echo "Exit..."
exit
fi
else
export CLIENT=Client1

# Start from here with generating the needed profiles...
