But this time I it just does this:
[root@backupserver openvpn]# openvpn server.conf
It doesn't hang and doesn't produce errors. It just goes back to the prompt, ready for another command.
It is installed, which is clear when I tell it just openvpn with no configuration file. That causes it to produce:
Code: Select all
OpenVPN 2.1.2 i686-pc-linux-gnu [SSL] [LZO2] [EPOLL] [PKCS11] built on Aug 25 2010 General Options: --config file : Read configuration options from file. --help : Show options. --version : Show copyright and version information. Tunnel Options: --local host : Local host name or ip address. Implies --bind. --remote host [port] : Remote host name or ip address. and much more.
Anyway, I have 126.96.36.199 running on one F13 machine, and 188.8.131.52 not running on another. The files I copied into the 184.108.40.206 machine are the same as in the 220.127.116.11 machine, with only the IPs and port numbers changed to avoid conflict. I put the second on a different subnet and gave it port 1193 instead of 1194. But it doesn't get far enough for that to matter.
What is the correct way to start this thing?
