HTB Documentation: Introduction to lab access.

Hack The Box uses a VPN (Virtual Private Network) to connect the users to the machines. To connect to this network we use a tool called openvpn.

Download the openvpn file.

  1. Login to Hack The Box.
  2. Click on the "Connect to HTB" button.
  3. Select the server you want to connect to, then select OpenVPN.
  4. Download the OpenVPN file.


Connect with OpenVPN

Open the file with openvpn within Kali:

sudo openvpn ~/Downloads/<downloaded .ovpn file>


The command will display "Initilization Sequence Completed" when succesful.
