OpenVPN client-side won't connect

Post by vii » Wed Aug 05, 2009 3:43 am

Hi, I'm hoping maybe you guys can help me, nobody seems to know...
I've been having issues trying to get the client part of my OpenVPN to connect.
It tells me that the TLS handshake failed, but in both my server and my client config files, I have the TLS line commented out.
What should I do?

vii, usually this is a sign of incorrectly formatted certificates. If you post your configs and logs as indicated in the forum rules above each page within this forum, we'd be able to help you a bit easier.
