read tcp_client unknown error (code=10060)

Post by robina80 » Tue May 24, 2022 3:47 pm

hi all,

getting this error on openvpn client connecting to an openvpn server

the funny thing is the client can open up a telnet session to the server, so they can hit the tcp port, the openvpn server is using tcp not udp

the client is in cairo so they block vpn especially openvpn, even using a different port doesnt help

can i put a new line in the client config or the server config?

anyone else have suggestions

thanks,

rob

Code: Select all

WSAETIMEDOUT
10060

Connection timed out.
    A connection attempt failed because the connected party did not properly respond after a period of time, or the established connection failed because the connected host has failed to respond.

And so it times out on connection because it is blocked.

Can the users create an ssh tunnel to the Fw and then run up openvpn client
