RDP with Open VPN Gui works. Open VPN Connect doesn't.

Post by JMollema » Wed Jun 23, 2021 9:32 pm

I have these installed.

I'm using an Untangle Firewall with Open VPN built in.

I'd like to migrate my users to OpenVPN Connect client from the older OpenVPN GUI client.

Everything works fine with OpenVPN GUI, including RDP.

If I close that connection and try OpenVPN Connect, it connects just fine, but when I Open RDP using a computer name, it fails immediately.
If I open it with a computers IP address, the RDP window finds the computer and asks for credentials. When credentials are added, the connection just tries to connect forever. No timeout, but no connection.

What is the difference between these two clients that might be causing this?

That's... helpful? Is there a gremlin removal command?
