Hello,

I make OpenVPN Server on debian... extract this file /etc/openvpn/client.tar.gz and include this files:

client.crt , client.csr, client.key, and ca.crt and client.conf which rename client.ovpn (for windows client)...

and then copy all files to this path:

Quote:
C:\Program Files\OpenVPN\config


so edit client.ovpn for some path like:

ca /etc/openvpn/km31512-05.hostingaura.com-keys/ca.crt
cert /etc/openvpn/km31512-05.hostingaura.com-keyss/client.crt
key /etc/openvpn/km31512-05.hostingaura.com-keys/client.key


change to this path for windows client:

ca F:\\Program\ Files\\OpenVPN\\config\\ca.crt
cert F:\\Program\ Files\\OpenVPN\\config\\client.crt
key F:\\Program\ Files\\OpenVPN\\config\\client.key


then run OpenVPN GUI and click for connect... this is log connect:

So... my configure file:

Quote:
export OPENVPN_SERVER="vpn.km31512-05.hostingaura.com"
export OPENVPN_CLIENTS="client"
export OPENVPN_IPRANGE="10.23.213"
export OPENVPN_LOCALDOMAIN="km31512-05.hostingaura.com"


What's my wrong??

I haven't ping from windows client to 10.23.213.0

Did you run make && make install after you extracted the files on the Debian box? After that you have to start the VPN daemon. Then you can connect from windows.

OpenVPN static key file
/var/log/daemon.log:Feb 27 11:52:20 km31512-05 ovpn-server[28648]: Cannot open f ile key file '/etc/openvpn/keys/ta.key': No such file or directory (errno=2)

The file that contains your encryption key is missing.

openvpn --genkey --secret ta.key

Did you run that command? ^^

I set up openvpn on Ubuntu without encryption or authentication just to see if I could get it to connect. I couldn't connect to it from XP so I installed it on FreeBSD and I was able to connect. However, after the "Initialization Sequence Completed" message, I couldn't do anything else with it. Am I supposed to be able to run commands the way I can with SSH or FTP?
