OpenVPN Connect Linux client

Post by eglyn » Wed Mar 31, 2021 8:42 am

Hi :)

I am looking for a openvpn connect client for linux laptop, with same graphic interface than windows client.
I just find a openvpn3 client for linux, but only with command line, and an ovpn config file is necessary. There is no configuration with https request direct to ther server, and a autologin option.

We want to deploy OpenVPN access server for our 300 laptop, but some of them are on Linux, and we need the same easy config than the windows client ^^
So, is this client exist (even in beta version) ?

Thx :)

If you have a GNOME desktop environment then you should be able to use network-manager-applet to import the OpenVPN AS .ovpn configuration file.

Hi There,

We do not have an official OpenVPN Connect Client for Linux - the only available clients for Linux are OpenVPN 2.x and our beta openvpn3 command line clients. OpenVPN Connect is only available on Windows/Mac/iOS/Android.

Ok thx :)

But how to generate the ovpn file with the access server ?

I was hoping to find some kind of button in the user interface of the admin console that would say: download ovpn file :D

Hi There,

You can actually download this on client UI as seen on the below screenshot:

Also, you can generate one as well on the access server node itself via the command line below:

Save a server-locked profile to client.ovpn:

Code: Select all

./sacli GetGeneric >client.ovpn
Save a user-locked profile to client.ovpn:

Code: Select all

./sacli --user <USER_NAME> AutoGenerateOnBehalfOf
./sacli --user <USER_NAME> GetUserlogin >client.ovpn
Save an auto-login type profile to client.ovpn:

Code: Select all

./sacli --user <USER_NAME> AutoGenerateOnBehalfOf
./sacli --user <USER_NAME> GetAutologin >client.ovpn
Save a separate files version of a user-locked profile:

Code: Select all

./sacli --user <USER_NAME> AutoGenerateOnBehalfOf
./sacli -o ./ --cn <USER_NAME> Get5
Save separate files version of an auto-login profile:

Code: Select all

./sacli --user <USER_NAME> AutoGenerateOnBehalfOf
./sacli -o ./ --cn <USER_NAME>_AUTOLOGIN Get5
