[Solved] Connecting without Admin rights

Post by thomas.lubbers » Wed Oct 12, 2016 2:13 pm

Hi there,

We are having some issues with VPN connections. Users who have admin right can connect to the VPN service without any issues however users with standard rights are unable to connect and will get a connection failed notice. What can be the issue here? We use Windows 7 and 10.

OpenVPN currently requires admin rights to add routes etc ..

There are some hacks or you can use a beta version with openvpn-interactive service.

As a VPN provider, maybe you should know that already ...

This worked very nicely for me using the beta version.

OpenVPN 2.4 (currently _alphaX) includes the new Interactive Service, which allows non-admin users to run openvpn properly.
