OpenVPN MI GUI v20110902 problem!

Post by life » Fri Sep 09, 2011 2:40 am

Greetings.


I've got a problem with OpenVPN MI GUI, after launch it pops up this error:

Management interface can not be found in config file "xxx.ovpn".

and then

The OpenVPN service is not running. OpenVPN MI GUI will not be able
to connect to the management interface.


I tried to search over the internet about solution - nothing was found.
Tried to launch OpenVPN service manually and then start a MI GUI -
after service start it connects to the server automatically and then
after MI GUI launch I'm getting same messages.
My system is Windows 7 HP sp1 x64, OpenVPN is 2.2.1 both server and client.

Here are the client config:

dev tun
proto tcp
remote xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx zzzzzz
resolv-retry infinite
nobind
persist-key
persist-tun
ca ca.crt
cert client.crt
key client.key
ns-cert-type server
tls-auth ta.key 1
cipher AES-256-CBC
comp-lzo
verb 3

Hope you'll advise me something.

The solution is to add this to a client's config:

management 127.0.0.1 "servers_port"
management-hold
management-query-passwords
auth-retry interact

Where "servers_port" is a port of your OpenVPN server (enter without quotes).

Thanks to author!

Thank you for updating. Is this OpenVPN Access Server, or OpenVPN Community Edition?
