OVPN Connector does not start

Post by derLeon » Mon Jan 23, 2023 8:20 am


I tried last week to use the OVPN connector service to set up a domain login on our Samba server via VPN. So that the Windows laptops can log on to the domain remotely. Unfortunately, I have already failed to set up the service.

As a guide I used this official one here. https://openvpn.net/cloud-docs/user-gui ... n-windows/

I have done everything as in the instructions step by step but without success. When I try to connect manually with your config everything works but when I try to start the connector service it just does not start.
Do any of you have an idea what I am doing wrong?

Content of my Config:

Code: Select all

## How to setup OpenVPN client?
## 1. Install OpenVPN software on your platform.
## 2. Double click leonserver.ovpn file to create new connection profile.
## 3. Type username and password while connection.
