How to open network shares folder on --up in Windows!!

Post by suryanibba » Thu Jun 13, 2019 5:55 pm

My objective is to open server-side network shared folder when Windows client connects to the VPN server.
VPN server is Debian with Samba folder sharing.
Client is Win7.
I'm trying to open a network folder on --up on client side by doing this:
CODE: SELECT ALL

script-security 2
up up.bat
up-delay
where up.bat is
CODE: SELECT ALL

start \\10.8.0.1\public\
the connection to the server gets stuck at
CODE: SELECT ALL

SENT CONTROL [debideb]: 'PUSH_REQUEST' (status=1)
If I comment out up-related commands the connection establishes with no problems. I also called
CODE: SELECT ALL

start \\10.8.0.1\public\
manually after the connection is complete and it does what it should. Any ideas what I do wrong?

Client config:
CODE: SELECT ALL

client
dev tun
proto udp
remote 1.2.3.4 53789

pull

script-security 2
up up.bat
up-delay

dhcp-renew
register-dns

;tun-mtu 1500
;tun-mtu-extra 32
;mssfix 1450
persist-key
persist-tun
ping 15
ping-restart 0
ping-timer-rem
resolv-retry infinite
reneg-sec 0
explicit-exit-notify 3
nobind

ca ca.crt
cert p.crt
key p.key

remote-cert-tls server
cipher AES-256-CBC
comp-lzo
auth SHA512
fast-io
;keepalive 10 30
verb 5
Client log:
CODE: SELECT ALL

OpenVPN does not allow data to pass over the VPN until all scripts have completed.
