Hi, I tried out your tutorial on readwrite.com and it was very well detailed and easy to follow. I just have a few questions about this configuration file because I think it is the reason why the VPN server fails to start upon booting. Do I need to include the "#" in the file or is that just marking the separation between what you need to type and your comment. Also what do the 10th, 12th, 14th, 16th, 18th, 19th, 21st, 22nd, and 23rd lines mean in relation to them having a # in front of them because I'm confused whether they are directions of what to type in place of the comment or if they are just explaining what the text above or below the comment does. Or possibly a little of both. I really appreciate the help and would really like to get my Raspberry Pi VPN server finally running.
"10.8.0.0 is the default address for Raspberry Pi for clients that are connected to the VPN."
Sorry for the noob question. I have been following the readwrite tutorial http://readwrite.com/2014/04/10/raspberry-pi-vpn-tutorial-server-secure-web-browsing. It was all going well until I got to creating the server conf file. I have a few questions:
A) When putting in the crt and key names, is there a special syntax for listing the values for additional clients?
B) what does the red text signify? are the quotes meant to be typed as well?
Hello! After connecting, i recieve a message:
I'm connected to server (ping to 10.8.0.1 is OK), but i cannot open a sites. And that's my server.conf:
I was having some issues with my Windows clients but strangely with my Andorid everything was working fine, and I found out what was causing the problem.
On line 17 you say # SWAP THE IP NUMBER WITH YOUR RASPBERRY PI IP ADDRESS
My probably final ultra short config ...
I had this all configured at one point and things were peachy. Now, not so much.
but open port check (canyouseeme.org) shows 1194 "connection refused"
I struggled to connect to devices on my local LAN when I was connected from a client.
I noticed that line 13, the last number on the subnet is
When changing this to
So, at the end there is two things extra that I needed to end up with a working openvpn with fully "redirect-gateway"
And added the four lines to the script:
Lauren, works great! Thank you so much.
I am able to connect to the VPN remotely and within my network. The issue I have is when I connect remotely, I can't see the PC I have internally. for example, if i connect my tablet and PC on the same network internally through the VPN I am able to see them both on computer>network list. If I connect my tablet remotely on 4G, I successfully connect to the VPN, but I cannot see the PC that is on the network.
This is my interfaces file:
and my server file:
Here is the iptables:
iptables -t nat -A POSTROUTING -s 10.8.0.0/24 -o wlan0 -j MASQUERADE
If changes are made to this after finishing the steps in the guide do we need to remake any keys or redo any steps to the whole process?
push "dhcp-option DNS 192.168.1.1" # This should already match your router address and not need to be changed.
I had this line set up as my public IP address not my router IP.
This is what I get:
I am facing problem while connecting SIP Registrations
my current IP route is:
Changed my Local Subnet to the pi itself since I am also runnning Pi-hole.
Found out im using my ipv6 address and not my ipv4 address when checking out my ip, so i'm assuming its using the ipv6 of the sites that i can connect to.
