AWS Marketplace OpenVPN AS

Post by bthurber » Thu Jun 08, 2017 1:10 pm

Are there plans to update the AWS Marketplace OpenVPN AS? It is becoming a bit long in the tooth from an "apt upgrade" perspective and I'm not sure how to update it properly (ref my other post from a week or so ago).

I should be on the dev team.

Yes, it will be updated. OpenVPN AS 2.1.6 was just released, and there's some more stuff on the way, so in a little while, the AWS images will all be updated to the latest version of OS and AS.

To upgrade for example the 2.1.4 AS to version 2.1.6 do this;

SSH to your server
obtain root rights (sudo su for example)
run these 2 commands;
wget ... amd_64.deb
dpkg -i openvpn-as-2.1.6-Ubuntu16.amd_64.deb

If you encounter any problems try a simple reboot/restart first or otherwise contact the support department. You can do so by going to, clicking sign in (if you're not signed in already) and clicking support (at the top of the page) and submitting a ticket and your problem.
