VPN Connection setup

Post by andrew.seyffert » Tue Apr 16, 2019 2:13 pm

Hi

I'm trying to setup the server.ovpn and client.ovpn files. I've tried to follow the instructions on a few sites which I saw as well as a video. But it still does not work.

I need to setup the server config file on a server which is at a hosting company. The server has a static ip and they gave me 3 IP's to use if we need to apply them to client computers. I assume these would be what I could use to setup the VPN for a client. So their computers / laptops then use these IP's?

I'm having problem when the server tries connecting. If i look in the log the server is given an IP which I am not allowed to use, so I'd like to know how I can force a specific IP to the server TAP adapter. And also where I would put what code to force the IP?

I can include the server and client config files as well as the log file if this would help and someone could assist.

Thanks,
Andrew
