Installing NordVPN on OpenWrt 18.06.2


Have someone been able to install NordVPN on OpenWRT 18.06.2?

We should make a sticky thread where we write guides and tips on how to use NordVPN on OpenWRT 18.06.2.

I have been trying for almost 3 weeks now and couldnt get it to work.

Even NordVPN couldnt get it to work so they started a ticket where the "senior programmers" will try to help us.

This is the guide right now on website:

Thank you!

The documentations for the project, and the first reference are here, so if such guide is to be added, it's best added there.

I have tried to add OpenVPN with NordVPN on my router.

Following this guide:


What did their support say?

The error log shows lots of

ptions error: Unrecognized option or missing or extra parameter(s) in /etc/openvpn/

What is in the .ovpn file? It looks like line 22 is an error.

Hi, anyone got any web interface setup for Nord VPN rather than CLI that is listed.
