Urgent Help Required

Post by New_user » Tue Mar 27, 2012 9:07 pm


I am very new to unix and networking. I am trying to create a VPN connection by making one of my unix(fedora) server as VPN access server and other unix(fedora) server as client. I have performed the following steps:
1. Installed the access server software on server1.
2. connected it from windows client (just to check) and it is working fine.
3. Now I am trying to connect to the same server from Unix and getting the following error message in putty " software caused connection abort".
4. For unix client I have performed the following steps:
a. installed unix client using "yum install openvpn".
b. downloaded the client.ovpn file from the web server link and placed in the /etc/openvpn folder of client server.
c. added oen row in the etc/resolv.conf file on client server as
newserver ipaddress(of my access server)
d. Ran the command openvpn --config openvpn.client
5. But after starting the server, after 1 minute or so I receive the fatal error "software caused connection abort" and putty becomes inactive.

Please help!!

Thanks in advance!1

Starting OpenVPN tampers with routing table on the client, thats why OpenVPN server becomes unavailable.
