Use exsiting Certs in OpenVPN

Post by madial3368 » Wed Apr 28, 2021 12:19 pm

I have deploy fully functional OpenVPN server in pFsense, with TLS authentication using certificates/keys created on pFsense. Now I want to deploy another OpenVPN server but not pFsense, just application on Debian OS, and allow my pFsense openvpn clients connect using their keys.
Can someone please advise is there a way to import my existing pFsense keys to newly created OpenVPN server?

the most simple one is using winspc on windows pc then create connection to your pfsense then copy all folder openvpn to your pc. after that install openvpn o into new openvpn server and copy all it back . then create Ipforward and NAT to new openvpn server . it should work for you.

remember you should copy all folder CA too so you can create new certificate for new client .
