Background info related with my query that follows here, below this=>
Code: Select all
About 5 years ago I created an OpenVPN connection to help a friend who is far away from me. Since then things have changed every so often & they are again needing to be changed due to the closure of the DDNS provider. I have searched here on the terms 'ddns' & 'dynamic DNS' & found some very non-specific info in this Cert/Config management area as well as in the Server Administration area - related info - but not any direct answers to my query. Those threads are as follows: https://forums.openvpn.net/viewtopic.php?f=22&t=15522 https://forums.openvpn.net/viewtopic.php?f=4&t=7650 https://forums.openvpn.net/viewtopic.php?f=4&t=10576 I tried posting my query before & only got chastized after it was moved for me into 'off-topic, related'.
I need to change the OVPN client and/or server settings to reflect & accept a different DDNS provider, which is kept updated by an app that is quite easy to change for this purpose - it is ONLY the OVPN settings which concern me.
From what I can see, it looks as if I may be able to change the domain setting used for this in the .OVPN file whilst leaving all else the same - but I remain uncertain & do not wish to break it by skipping any needed steps.
I need to know if that is enough, or if I also must regenerate other files for this change, please.
Hopefully my query here is specific enough & will get some helpful info in reply as I only have several days left in which to change this to maintain that very needed connection to help my friend.
Thanks for any helpful replies !!
