Openvpn not start on 6.6


(Vinny) #1

Hi everyone, I just installed nethserver and service vpn, openvpn but do not start even if terminal “service openvpn start” failed to tell me what may depend?
Thank you
P.S. This is an on-line translation

You’ll need to provide some logs from openvpn in order for anyone to assist why the service isn’t starting. OpenVPN logs are typcially found in /var/log directory and may be in their own log directory within that path called openvpn. You do need to be root to access that directory.

Arresto di openvpn: [ OK ]
Avvio di openvpn: [FALLITO]

(Jose "Martin" Abeleira. AKA Marto) #11

Did you set it up through the gui? i´ve setup it and tried to started and
log was shown at /var/log/openvpn/openvpn.log


(Giacomo Sanchietti) #12

If openvpn is not configured, the service will fail to start.
Please setup the roadwarrior configuration and the server will start.
