Sever not starting

Postby sharifhossain » Wed Mar 08, 2017 9:33 am

Hi, I need some help.

I have set up a VPN using a vps and Putty but having issues to start the server.

While clicking "start the server" button in openvpn, It's showing below error-
"process started and then immediately exited: ['Wed Mar 8 04:24:03 2017 Linux ifconfig failed: could not execute external program']
service failed to start or returned error status
process started and then immediately exited: ['Wed Mar 8 04:24:03 2017 Linux ifconfig failed: could not execute external program']
service failed to start or returned error status"

can someone help?

This is a problem caused by ifconfig missing on your operating system. You can usually resolve this fairly easily by installing the net-tools package. For example on CentOS you can do:
rpm install net-tools

Edit: or was it nettools? I can never remember. Try both.
