TLS Error: TLS key negotiation failed to occur within 60 seconds (check your network connectivity)

Post by maxl0412 » Thu Jan 03, 2019 8:53 am

i´ve configured my server with that tutorial -

Also i´ve made a ufw firewall exception for that port. Every time i try to connect to the server i get
Wed Jan 02 13:11:03 2019 TLS Error: TLS key negotiation failed to occur within 60 seconds (check your network connectivity)
Wed Jan 02 13:11:03 2019 TLS Error: TLS handshake failed
as an error.

I even changed the port to 449 because i´ve read that the standardport is sometimes problematic and changed the ufw rule. i also checked if the server gets a connection request with tcpdump on port 449. It seems to get that request. i couldn´t find any logs besides the syslogs for openvpn and all they say are "OpenVPN service started" etc.

In my config-folder on my pc i have the ca.crt, maxl.crt, maxl.key and client.ovpn (*.crt, maxl.key compressed to a tar and downloaded that with WinSCP / client.ovpn changed from a example .ovpn)

Maybe someone has a clue to help me with that problem.
If you need more infos please just ask.
