Hi, I have done it like this

  1. Installed OpenVPN from software center,
  2. goto Gateway → OpenVPN roadwarrior
  3. Checked → Enable roadwarrior server
  4. choosed Username, password and certificate
  5. Mode → Routed mode
  6. Entered desired IP network for VPN
  7. Entered desired Netmask for VPN
  8. [advanced] → checked Push all static routes
  9. [advanced] → DHCP options → enter domain name and local DNS server IP
  10. [Connection parameters] → enter your external IP address / or external dns name
  11. After that I installed LDAP account provider
  12. created new user + password
  13. go back to Gateway → OpenVPN roadwarrior
  14. second tab → Roadwarriors account → Create new
  15. choosed System user → submit
  16. go back to Roadwarriors account → on user use Action and Downloaded listed files
  17. OpenVPN client on Windows/Linux works very well with that

this is how i have done it on my router based on NS7


I need to configure a public IP…?

question is - is this for your users working from i.e. home/different place than your work? or this is internal OpenVPN server (not for public use)

in case no 1 you should add your external IP
in case no 2 you should add IP of your openVPN server which is inside your network

more details please ? :slight_smile:
