Server :: OpenVPN Range Address / When Change Static IP To Dynamic IP In Config File OpenVPN Didn't Work?

Feb 13, 2010

I want to configure a VPN over the Internet.I installed the 'openvpn' package, generated the key file, transfered it by a secure way to the client, and setted up the configuration file.

So, in that configuration file I input the IP addresses of the tunneled interfaces. Both IPs are static in the tunnel.

Then, I've heard somewhere that I can assign a dynamic configuration IP for the client. I do this registering a range.

Well, when I tried to change static IP to dynamic IP (changing '' to '') in the configuration file, the OpenVPN didn't work.

Obviously I don't know what I'm doing, and I really, don't believe that simply changing the IP will make it work, but I tried.

I hope I explained my problem as well.

My configuration file:

# OpenVPN Server Configuration File
dev tun 0
cd /etc/openvpn
secret key_file

In client I execute the 'openvpn' without the '--daemon' parameter.Then I want that my client uses a IP in a range (, for example), instead of a static IP ( also thought to use a DHCP server, but I'm not sure that will work.

Networking :: OpenVPN Can't Establish A Tunnel Via Fw2

Feb 10, 2011

I have two firewalls, one primary (fw1) and one fall-back/backup (fw2). On the LAN side the fw's reside in the same LAN segment. I have a client who wants VPN redundancy. So I configured two VPN tunnels for this client. One via fw1 and a backup via fw2. Since the default gateway on the VPN server points to fw1 only the tunnel via fw1 is established. OpenVPN can't establish a tunnel via fw2 because of the gateway and just sits there waiting...

I'm playing with OpenVPN and I'm trying to share my VM's internet connection with another VM. My server VM has internet access through a NAT interface on virtualbox. My client can even ssh to the server, so the openvpn tunnel must be working. I've tried on the server:

General :: Windows - Routing Everything Except A Certain IP Range Through An OpenVPN Tunnel?

Aug 31, 2011

I've been working with my OpenVPN server for a while, and I have a rather interesting problem. I need to redirect all client traffic through the tunnel except for a couple IP's that need to be resolvable locally. The way I'm doing this is pushing these routes from the server:

Server 'PUSH' directives

push "redirect-gateway def1 bypass-dhcp"
push "dhcp-option DNS"
push "dhcp-option DNS"

I'm seeing that translating into these Windows routes:

Windows routes occurring

Wed Aug 31 15:14:35 2011 PUSH: Received control message: 'PUSH_REPLY,redirect-gateway def1 bypass-dhcp,dhcp-option DNS,dhcp-option DNS,route,topology net30,ping 5,ping-restart 30,ifconfig'
Wed Aug 31 15:14:35 2011 ROUTE default_gateway=

Wed Aug 31 15:14:40 2011 C:WINDOWSsystem32
oute.exe ADD 199.[*.*.*] MASK
Wed Aug 31 15:14:40 2011 C:WINDOWSsystem32
oute.exe ADD MASK
Wed Aug 31 15:14:40 2011 C:WINDOWSsystem32
oute.exe ADD MASK
Wed Aug 31 15:14:40 2011 C:WINDOWSsystem32
oute.exe ADD MASK

I've hidden my server's IP beginning with 199 for security purposes.What I've gathered.I'm assuming that is a kind of code for "everything," so I'm not sure how I could get this to work, but the general idea is that I need a specific IP range (172.16.*) to be resolvable on the LOCAL NETWORK (of the client) meaning it does not go through the VPN tunnel and the client can connect to 172.16.* locally.Is this possible? Routes can be executed through the command line, server "push" or client config options. Any way to get this to work while still routing other traffic through would do, really.

Additional Info: I have the server running on Debian 64-bit and the client running on Windows 7 (although Vista needs to work as well).Client/server configs can be provided if needed.

General :: Single Application Through OpenVPN Tunnel (Debian Lenny)?

Jan 25, 2010

I'm using Debian Lenny and I want to tunnel rtorrent only through a OpenVPN tunnel. I have a tunnel running, the config file looks like this:

dev tun
proto udp
remote openvpn.xxx.com 1194
resolv-retry infinite


My idea is that I could run a sockd proxy internally that redirects traffic to the openvpn tunnel. I could use the *nix "proxifier" application "tsocks" to make it possible for rtorrent to connect through that proxy (as rtorrent doesn't support proxies). I have trouble configuring sockd as my IP inside the VPN changes every time I connect. This is a config file someone said would help:[URl].. As my IP changes at each connect I don't know what to put in that config file. I have no control over the host side config file.

Ubuntu Servers :: Setting Up A Bridge For OpenVPN / Tunnel All The Traffic Through The VPS?

Feb 3, 2011

I have an Ubuntu VPS running 10.10 x86_64

This is what is in my /etc/network/interfaces right now.

auto eth0
iface eth0 inet static
address 67.202.x.x
gateway 67.202.x.1
auto lo
iface lo inet loopback
My server.conf

I can get the VPN server running and everything connects fine from the client. I just don't know how to tunnel all the traffic through the VPS because it involves making the bridge which I'm having trouble with. What exactly am I supposed to put in /etc/network/interfaces?

Debian :: Modify Configuration To Enable OpenVPN To Act As Tunnel Broker

Feb 18, 2011

I currently run openVPN on my Debian box that provides secure ipv4 routing from my laptop to my VPS in a different country (and from there the internet via this box). This works fine. However, id like to sort out ipv6 through this VPN as well as IPV4 and not overly sure how to do it. The remote server itself has native ipv6 configured on device eth0 and it works (ping6, traceroutes all fine,incoming to web servers etc) nicely on dual stack.

How would i go about modifying the config (both client and server if needed) to enable openVPN to act as a tunnel broker to enable the laptop to use the ipv6 through the server as well as the old v4? (the internet connection laptop end will not/does not have native ipv6 from the ISP. Currently im using he-net tunnel broker but id like to run myself through my existing openVPN). VPN config details: Its using UDP, port 1194, creates a TUN interface, redirect-gateway etc and the rest is normal config. Edit:- if it matters the clients are all running windows so i cant use sh scripts to set up stuff client end.

Ubuntu Networking :: Config OpenVPN Client For SwitchVPN In Network Manager From Windows Ovpn Files?

Jul 17, 2011

I have ovpn configuration files for Windows from SwitchVPN. They do not provide configuration files for GNU/Linux. They said I can extract the certificate and key files from the ovpn files, but I'm confused about how to do that.First of all, I don't know which Authentication Type to choose: "Certificates (TLS)," "Password," "Password with Certificates (TLS)" or "Static Key."

Second, I don't know what to put where from the ovpn file. I see a <ca> � </ca> section and a <tls-auth> </tls-auth> section, but I don't see how those correspond to any of the Authentication Types. "Certificates (TLS)" and "Password with Certificates (TLS)" require two certificates and a key, "Password," requires one certificate and no key, and "Static Key" requires a key and key direction but no certificate. When I connect to SwitchVPN in Windows, it asks for a user name and password.Here's an example of the ovpn files (certificate and key contents removed):


route-delay 3
dev tun


how to get what I need from the ovpn files, and which Authorization Type to choose in the Network Manager VPN configuration GUI, and what to put in the blanks?

Fedora Networking :: OpenVPN Using Alias Rather Than IP

Nov 27, 2009

Is there anyway you can configure either OpenVPN client or the system to allow connections using OpenVPN to be made to computers on the OpenVPN network using their alias rather than their IP address. This may sound blasphemous but you can in Windows. That is if the VPN network is say 10.x.0.x I could connect to Comp4 or Comp2 using Comp4 or Comp2 not 10.x.0. 4 or 10.x.0.2 or whatever IP is allocated by the OpenVPN server. If the OpenVPN server has not been restarted then it will usually allocate the same IP every time the same client connects.

Fedora Networking :: OpenVPN Client Disconnects Me From LAN / Fix It?

Sep 15, 2009

This is the first one of probably many posts as I am new to Fedora having lots of questions. This one is about the openvpn client which is used by me to connect to my company network. Thanks to the Fedora FAQ it was easy for me to set up the client and establish a connection. There is just one problem every time I open a connection I am disconnected from my local Internet. I was using openvpn on my Windows XP PC before and there was no problem keeping two Network connections, the (W)LAN and the vpn tunnel. Does anyone know how to solve this? I am utilizing the latest Fedora 11 release and configured openvpn client via the Network Manager GUI.

Fedora Networking :: OpenVPN Server Configuration On F14

Jun 16, 2011

I have (seemingly regretfully) finally upgraded my Fedora Core 7 linux machine that has served me so well for the past decade. One of the final pieces to put in place was my Openvpn config (which was running flawlessly on my FC7) which I cannot get to work.

Here are my steps.

1. Disabled SELinux

2. Added the following entry in my iptables: (although I've stopped iptables to help troubleshoot)
-A INPUT -i tap0 -j ACCEPT
-A INPUT -i br0 -j ACCEPT

3. Yum installed openvpn and bridge-utils (btw I'm using bridging)

4. Configured my bridge-start script as such:
# Set up Ethernet bridge on Linux
# Requires: bridge-utils
# Define Bridge Interface
br="br0" .....

5. Configured my openvpn server conf as such:
proto tcp-server
port 5990
dev tap0 .....

When I execute my bridge-start script it creates the br0 and tap0 then all connectivity vanishes (I can only ping my gateway - internet and any other addresses time out.

Fedora Networking :: OpenVPN And Remote Port Forwarding

Feb 10, 2009

I've recently installed OpenVPN on my dedicated server (Fedora) in order to have full internet access for all of my WinXP clients. In case somebody is interested in the details of the OpenVPN installation, I followed this documentation: Rootserver-as-OpenVPN-Gateway. The installation runs quire nicely, I'm able to surf the net and even file-sharing programs work on the XP clients - at least to some extent. There is a slight problem though: the file-sharing programs complain that they have a "NAT problem" or that they are "Firewalled".

Most likely, this problem can be addressed by configuring remote port forwarding (RPF) on the server. The only routing rules which I've added on the server during the OpenVPN installation are these:
# initialize natting for openvpn
iptables -t nat -F POSTROUTING
echo 1 > /proc/sys/net/ipv4/ip_forward
iptables -t nat -A POSTROUTING -o eth0 -s -j MASQUERADE
Let's assume a certain application on a client is listening on e.g. port 1234. How do I configure RPF for this port on the server side.

Fedora Networking :: OpenVPN Client - How To Access Internal Ressources

Sep 26, 2009

I'm using Fedora Core 11 and the client OpenVPN on the network-manager into a segmented infrastructure. It works well.

My laptop is on a dmz wireless Zone and access Internet through a firewall via a front-end zone with wlan0 interface.

But my laptop can access on a back-end zone to a server.

When I start the OpenVPN tunnel, I cannot access on my back-end zone because the kernel routing table is modified (all the traffic is routed through the tun vpn interface)

If I define a static route like route add -host 192.168.2.x gw where x is my file serveur, I cannot connect to this server because the routing is make through the tun interface and not by the wlan0 who can access on is gateway

I want to know where changing the kernel routing table file to access on the Internet and on my back-end zone in a same time.
