Thanks for hijacking somebody-elses thread with your expectant nonsense.

I bet my Magic-Eight-Ball knows more about your computer than you do.

If you want real help then read this:

And, for the record, You get what you pay for, which, in your case, ain't gonna be much.

thanks, I have a problem that I cannot fix myself. My vpnserver is 800km away from another country and I no longer answer it. If someone can help me, I would pay to save myself the 800km. meanwhile I think that the license could have expired ?!

Can you at least say which version of OpenVPN your server is ?

It's a raspberry pi with ubuntu where the OpenVpn is running everything is behind the modem. Everything has worked for over a year. I don't know which version, the certificate may have expired. Open VPN is still running because if I use the wrong password it will recognized as wrong!

Is there a possibility via the internet (ssh is activated, username and password is available) to the operating system running on the Raspberry (behind the modem, port forwarding is only set up for OpenVpn)? My knowledge is limited in this direction!
