OpenVPN Community and Windows RADIUS - possible?

Post by jimwillsher » Fri Apr 02, 2021 10:12 am

Hi

I have OpenVPN Community Edition Server 2.4 running on a Windows server (2019). We have a separate RADIUS server provided by NPS in Windows.

I would like to understand if it's technically possible to authenticate the OpenVPN connections with our RADIUS, and if so, does anyone have a guide or a HOWTO I can follow?

Our OpenVPN config is working fine, and our RADIUS is successfully authenticating WPA2-Enterprise wifi clients. I'm looking for a way to marry the two together.


I have the option of switching the OpenVPN server to a Ubuntu VM if that helps.

Many thanks



Jim

As far as I know, Openvpn only provides support for *nix based OS.

There is probably a Windows solution but Openvpn does not provide it.

Ummmm no.......

As I say, I a happy to swap to linux, but no point if it still doesn't offer a RADIUS option.

Thanks, TinCanTech, for your arrogance and unhelpfulness. If you are going to take time to reply to someone asking for help, why not actually help them? Or simply don't bother replying.

YOU try searching google for it, and give me a definitive answer, because I cannot find one.

OpenVPN "Community" "radius" "Windows" -"Access Server"

is my reference search.

If google can't find anything then there probably isn't anything..
