local-auth + LDAP-auth

Post by francois1 » Tue Jul 07, 2020 3:47 pm

Hi,

With Openvpn CE, is it possible to have both local-auth & ldap-auth working ?
If so, how ?
Cauz adding LDAP make the client ask for User/Passwd.
And try to make the authentication through the LDAP plugin.
whereas i want to use only cert authentication via local-auth.

Thx for help !

Francois, you have made two posts essentially asking the same nonsensical question.

This one:

Hi,

I have a VPN server running. with several computers connecting with their certificates.
Now i ve added LDAP with Google Cloud Identity.

But it seems activating LDAP makes my old crt/key access not possible.
How can i do to be compatible with older version of handling connection ?

These are computers with no people attached.
Can someone help ?

Thanks !
  • If you don't have users using the VPN then why do you need user/pass ?
Perhaps, start with sections 15 & 16 here:

Thx for the non sensical ! You know how to welcome people, what a pleasure ! :)

Anyway...
I read section 15 and 16 but for a brain like mine, its not obvious...
So i dont see the answer.

My need is to use :
- LDAP for the people of my company
- local for servers

By the way i tried to remove 1st post but i couldnt :
- i though it was in wrong section
- i thought it was not clear (and may be why nobody answered)

Thank you,
Bye
