[SOLVED] Mount NFS after connect

Post by Jomart » Fri Jun 15, 2018 7:13 am

Hi,
I need to mount a NFS share after connection was established.
I have modified my .ovpn with that :

Code: Select all

script-security2
up /path/to/script.sh
And my script contain :

Code: Select all

#!/bin/sh
mount -t nfs IP:/data /home/data
(I can mount the NFS manually when the VPN connection was established) but when I add the option "up" in my .ovpn, I have the message "connection established" but I can't ping my NFS server ...

P.S : For testing I launched VPN & my script in root

Any idea ?
Thank's

Your script does not work because all scripts must return completed before the VPN will pass any data.

This is by design and for security.

You cannot use openvpn to initiate this connection .. so use something else.

(Technically, you can use openvpn but as you can see, it will ultimately fail)
