Re: OpenVPN tutorial

This has probably already been answered, but what is the benefit of this type of OpenVPN over the VPN that I already have? Which is Hola by the way. OpenVPN is a software program. Hola is a network of clients sharing connections. Apples and pears really. Few pointers: Hola is not private, not open ...

Re: OpenVPN tutorial

Okay, that's good to hear. OpenVPN works but does not find the .conf file in /etc/openvpn probably. You can point OpenVPN manualy to the file using

Code: Select all

sudo openvpn --config /etc/openvpn/yourconfigfile.conf
and let's see how that responds..

Next time, when you past CODE, please use a CODE block :)

Re: OpenVPN tutorial

I've gotten openvpn set up so that it works if I run it from the command line, e.g. # openvpn server.conf But running it as a service fails, although it reports no errors.

Re: OpenVPN tutorial

Maybe it helps if you draw out a map of your network, I often use the free app Fing to get a quick overview. Maybe your AP has a DHCP server and your router also runs one, so it's an IP battle ;) Anyhow, this is off-topic so better get into a Networking group :) Hi! Really not sure where would be th...

Hi Doni49, I wrote a tutorial about the OpenVPN setup, maybe that points you in a new direction to solve your problems. If I understand it right, the VPN is working fine but the Pi isn't handling your traffic the way you want it to, so it's about forwarding and gateway settings then. http://www.rasp...

Hi MSDOS4, Did you share a directory on your external drive? If the Pi shows to right amount of free space "df -h" then your Max should as well.
