Can I copy the open vpn files from 1 machine to another

Postby Dr-Jon » Thu Mar 16, 2017 11:20 am

Hi, I have had open vpn running as a sever on a machine in the office, the machine was compromised and had to be formatted and rebuilt. it is running windows 7. I managed to get the openVPN directory off the old machine as it seemed intact. I had reinstalled windows 7 and installed open VPN on it.
I copied all the files to the Openvpn folder in program files, As i have the original ca.crt, server.crt, and server.key files will these work or do i need to recreate them? will i need to remake the dh1024.pem file? or should these files still be good??
Thanks

Copies of those files should work normally ..
But do you have the ca.key ?
