OpenVPN question..

Post by nebope5331@mailcupp.com » Fri May 15, 2020 9:32 pm

I signed up with a filtering service that leverages openVPN for their filtering technology.

I configured OpenVPN on my router using the following .ovpn file:

Code: Select all

client
dev-type tun
proto udp
remote vpn-us-nyc1.netfree.link 443
resolv-retry infinite
nobind
persist-key
persist-tun
ca /config/auth/ca.crt
tls-client
remote-cert-tls server
auth-user-pass /config/auth/userpass.key
comp-lzo
verb 5
mute 10
reneg-sec 0
fast-io
route-nopull
crl-verify /config/auth/ca.pem
For some reason, the provider tells me that i need to manually install the certificate on every device for it to work. Does that make sense? Isn't there a way to have the cert installed on the router and still get the devices to be filtered?
