[Resoloved] Dynamic DNS

Post by rpcaldeira » Thu Nov 03, 2011 10:29 pm

Hello guys. I'm running OpenVPN Access Server on a Linux Box with a static IP in my internal network. I use a DDNS service to map my hostname to my IP. But i don't like to use OpenVPN Connect. I use the typical application such as this:Image.


So I download my client locked configuration file from my server but the config file comes with my internal static IP in it instead of my dynamic hostname. I tried to edit the config file switching the fields where my IP appears to my hostname. But i'm out of luck. When I use the application, the log shows it is trying to connect to my static IP instead of the dynamic hostname.

Can anyone help me?

Thanks in advance

You have to access web page of the OpenVPN server with admin rights and change there the ip field to DNS name you whant, then redownload client.
Or you can manually modify files in %ProgramFilesDir%\OpenVPN Technologies\OpenVPN Client\etc\profile directory.
