OpenVPN Connect client for OpenVPN Community Server

Post by adamlang » Tue Feb 21, 2017 6:38 pm

Hello,

I currently have OpenVPN Community server running with OpenVPN-GUI. We are tightening security on our computers and removing administrator rights for end users, which prevents the current OpenVPN-GUI program from working properly.

Is it possible to use the OpenVPN Connect client with OpenVPN Community server? The import as-is doesn't work. Is it possible or is that only for OpenVPN Access?

Upgrade your clients to use openvpn-2.4 ..

This allows users to run openvpn without needing any administrative rights.
