Post-authentification script support missing?

Post by mpetersen » Fri Aug 14, 2020 12:30 pm

Hi,
on https://openvpn.net/open-source-vs-open ... ss-server/ is written that both versions (commercial and ce) should support "Post-authentication scripts". However I cannot find any information how to activate/use this feature in the community version. Even I cannot find the folders containing the python modules in the community version.
So I would kindly ask for general help: Is this feature supported in ce version and if so how to find it ?

Best regards

I'm not sure if I understand it right:
I'm looking for a possibility to do some indiviual checks on the vpn client eg. checking installed virus scanner or windows patch level. This ist my understanding of post-auth scripts. This can be seen in github.com/Openvpn/openvpn ?

I really don't know what you are looking for. The best place to start is probably the Howto.

Hi Pippin,
yes, this is what I mean :)
But now the problem is that the described way there is for the access server and the necessary python libraries are not existing in the community edition.
But in the link I mentioned in my initial post this feature should be in the access server AND the community edition. :?:
Because of this I'm lost now :?
How can I realized the described post-auth function at Pippin's link with the community edition ?

Maybe nobody wrote one for open-source openvpn yet ..
