"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Did you follow the extensive wiki provided by dd-wrt?

Those sections at the end of your .ovpn file (<ca> ... </ca>  and  <key> ... </key>  are used to embed the keys within the config file. Not all VPN systems or hardware support that file format. For those that don't, the sections can be manually copied to separate files.

<ca>
move the content between the "ca" tags into  /tmp/openvpncl/ca.crt
</ca>

<key>
move the content between the "key" tags into   /tmp/openvpncl/client.key
</key>
