OpenVPN: Why it doesn't set up interface?

NethServer Version: NethServer release 7.5.1804 (beta)
Module: OpenVPN


i’m trying to setup site-to-site vpn connection with pfSense as server on one side and NethServer as client on other side.

and i’m struggling with traffic flow.

if i put OpenVPN client (!OpenVpnTunnels_Clients) in Topology - Subnet - OpenVPN client doesn’t set up network interface.

if i put in in p2p - it is configured with needed IP and routing table, but traffic blocks on NethServer.

how to fix it?

Could you please check log in /var/log/openvpn/cCLIENTNAME.log

remember the c before the client name…after said that you have settings which must be the same at the two ends of the tunnel (–auth, --cipher, --tls-auth, --tls-crypt…)

i’ve checked it… and fixed it.

but, then i moved to IPSec, it works a little faster.

Yep but with a symetric encryption (psk)
