VPN does not mount - as newbie with OpenVPN, need some help ;)

Post by nikkobuntu » Mon Jun 01, 2020 12:44 pm

Hello,
here is some details :
Architecture :
All server and clients are with Ubuntu 18.04 LTS
Main site : hosting openVPN server, on 192.168.8.251 accessed through gateway on port 1194 and 943 for admin / client https access.
I found that server was hosting a previous installation, from 2016, of openVPN, not used for a while.
I reinstall / upgrade it following officials doc ..
Server is OK, is fully accessible, as for admin than simple client, as well from inside server site than from outside.
I create new user from the web admin, then connect from outside with client user/authpass ;
Then downloaded config file from web user link (auto-login and client one) on Client PC, and then trying to start openVPN, as well from ubuntu parameter -- by adding file downloaded, as well from command line ; with no result

Negotiations start, seems to be OK, then, some thing wrong append and negotiation restart.. Here are the ouput from the command line (openvpn client)

Code: Select all

 $ openvpn --verb 5 --config ~/.openvpn/soubes/nicolas_autologin.ovpn

Mon Jun  1 14:27:38 2020 Server poll timeout, restarting
Mon Jun  1 14:27:38 2020 SIGUSR1[soft,server_poll] received, process restarting
I,ve try with different conf file, output and result still the same

My questions are :
- Is the "WARNING: --ns-cert-type is DEPRECAT.." could have effect on the logon process ?
- "Mon Jun 1 14:27:34 2020 UDP link local: (not bound)" is it normal that no local IP is set at this stage of negotiation ?
- As the main server keys were produced at the first install, do I have to cancel them and re-init openVpn server (what I do not know how to do) ?

I will appreciate some help for the community, which I thanks in advance ...
Nicolas
