Silent switch / thumbprint import help?

Post by maxisbored » Fri Aug 31, 2018 12:09 pm

Hey guys, new to the forums and have a couple questions here:

Does the windows client of OpenVPN 2.4 have a silent switch? I've tried running /s -s /silent -silent and everything else i can think of but can't get it to work. I need to deploy this to about 100 windows clients, and i'm wondering the best approach. Also, if there's anyone with experience with automating the extraction of a personal certificate thumbprint importing it to the config, i'd love to hear it :D

Thanks!

There is a /S (Silent) switch for OpenVPN but the TAP install may be problematic.

it doesn't actually do anything, though. the gump opens anyway.

It works for me ... although the TAP adapter throws an error .. but the final result is successful.

Which version are you using exactly? Though, I do need the tap adapter anyways... I guess it didn't install?

I tried with 2.4.6 on Windows 10 but this machine has already had Openvpn installed and uninstalled.
