Openvpn is showing 0 Bytes in

Post by rajeshyparikh » Wed Nov 06, 2019 7:33 am

Hi Team,

I am struggling for past couple of days with connectivity issues.

First of all i am using open vpn for connecting gns3 with google cloud compute.

Following is my configuration:

client side:

dev tun
proto udp
nobind
compress lz4
auth-nocache
remote rajeshparikh151985.duckdns.org
rport 1194

secret secret.key 1
ifconfig 172.16.253.2 172.16.253.1

persist-tun
persist-key
keepalive 10 60

verb 3



server file:



dev tun
proto udp

secret secret.key 0
ifconfig 172.16.253.1 172.16.253.2

user nobody
group nogroup
persist-tun
persist-key
compress lz4
keepalive 10 60
ping-timer-rem

verb 3

******************


Following is my log file:

Problem is Bytes in 0 B and out:85248 (83.3KiB).
Based on this i am not able to isolate the issue.
Does it mean there is some issue at local end or remote end??
If so what is the issue Please???

Note:it was working earlier very fine. I followed this guideline for integrating gns3 with gcp:
