Open VPN will not listen on port 1194

Post by jon_will » Fri May 14, 2021 12:07 am

Simply will not. I used thsi script (https://github.com/angristan/openvpn-install) to make a vpn tunlle to a private server and not matter what I do I can not get it to listen. This is also to meansion I have a https port listening but I can assess it.I have cheaked
nmap, iptables, ufw and more and it says the same thing. nothing is working. The port is allowed but closed(WHAT?).

al I can tell you is this is my conf

"port 1194
proto udp6
dev tun

keepalive 10 120

tls-cipher TLS-ECDHE-ECDSA-WITH-AES-128-GCM-SHA256
client-config-dir /etc/openvpn/ccd
status /var/log/openvpn/status.log
verb 3"

and this is what I get when I do tcpdump port 1194
