OpenVpn works, but can't access Web Admin Interface

Post by romans517 » Thu Jan 07, 2021 1:52 am

RasberryPI 4 8G, the VPN works from my client, but I cant access the Web admin interface. It isn't even running listening on the ports. I've seen where I can use /usr/local/openvpn-as/ scripts such as "scali". However, I don't even have a /usr/local/openvpn-as directory.

I might be going down the wrong path, is there a better way to get my Web Admin Interface working?

Thanks.

There is the OpenVPN Access Server which is the commercial version.
You have installed OpenVPN Community Version.
Start here:

Thanks Pippin. Just to clarify, are you suggesting I use the commercial version, or did you steer me to the community wiki to learn how to enable it in what I have? Again, thanks so much.

The latter.
You seem to have found the Access Server howto but have Community version installed...
Community version does not have a WebGUI.
