If you want openvpn to remember your password. Create a file in the config directory with your ipvanish username on the first line, and your ipvanish password on the second.
 
 
# printf "USERNAME\nPASSWORD\n" > /etc/openvpn/auth
 
 
Now once that is done, edit your /etc/openvpn/client.conf file so that the auth-user-pass line recognizes your new auth file.

This article describes a basic configuration of IpVanish with OpenVPN.

Get IpVanish's Certificate

You'll need IpVanish's certificate in your config directory to be able to connect to their network.

# curl http://www.ipvanish.com/software/configs/ca.ipvanish.com.crt > /etc/openvpn/ca.ipvanish.com.crt

Download Server Configuration

Choose your favorite server from IpVanish's config index and place the url into the following code. In this example, we'll use NYC.

# curl http://www.ipvanish.com/software/configs/ipvanish-US-New-York-nyc-a01.ovpn > /etc/openvpn/client.conf
