Post by paolo83 » Mon Aug 28, 2017 2:38 pm

Hi, I'm new on this forum.

OpenVPN Access Server only runs on Linux. The client software runs on Windows, Mac, Linux, iOS, and Android.

You can run a virtual machine on Mac OS X and run a Linux VM in there and run Access Server that way.

Or you can install the open source version of OpenVPN and manually configure certificates and configuration files. Then you can run the server on Mac OS X directly. But then you don't have OpenVPN Access Server running, then it's just the open source version with manual configuration.

Do you know how configure an open source version of OpenVPN manually on mac?
