Is it possible to have ZeroShell host multiple OpenVPN instances/profiles? Basically I want to have a configuration where OpenVPN-1 service regular employees & OpenVPN-2 service contractors or contracted employees. Employees connect to VPN1 on port XX98 and the contractors connect to VPN2 on port XX89.
To simply put!
How would I go about configuring and running multiple instances of OpenVPN Client-to-LAN services, each on a separate port?
I know that we can use a very large Subnet, assign each group a block of addresses and use static addressing for each client, but that is not the way we want to approach it.December 3, 2009 at 4:02 pm #49197
Yes you can.
Find the config with
ps auxw | grep vpn
Alter the content to your needs and put the new command on a post boot script.December 3, 2009 at 5:02 pm #49198
I hate to say this, but I simply do not know how……December 3, 2009 at 9:10 pm #49199
If I am understanding you clearly, I should copy the results of the command:
“root@zeroshell root> ps auxw | grep vpn”, edit its content [such as –port XXXX –ifconfig-pool 192.168.xxx.x 192.168.xxx.xxx 255.255.255.0 –push route-gateway 192.168.xxx.xxx DNS 192.168.xxx.xxx] and put it in a boot script?December 4, 2009 at 4:12 pm #49200
Don’t forget to change the interface name to VPN98 or 97 etc…December 10, 2009 at 4:25 am #49201
I entered it into the Post Boot Script and it tests successfully, but I cannot access the VPN via the new port.
I even created a new Script and I am still not able to access the VPN via the new Port. I have even restarted the server several times, and still not VPN connection using the new Port.
Example of MY SCRIPT
# Bash script: VPN-Cron
echo vpn –dev-type tap –dev VPN41 –mode server –tls-server –proto udp –port 1XXX –dh /etc/ssl/dh.pem –ca /var/register/system/openvpn/Auth/X509/CAFile –cert /var/register/system/openvpn/TLS/cert.pem –key /var/register/system/openvpn/TLS/key.pem –daemon VPN41_H2L –comp-lzo –ifconfig-pool 197.168.XXX.X 197.168.XXX.XX 255.255.255.0 –push route-gateway 197.168.XXX.254 –push redirect-gateway –push dhcp-option DNS 197.168.XXX.254 –push –client-connect /root/kerbynet.cgi/scripts/ov_connect –client-disconnect /root/kerbynet.cgi/scripts/ov_disconnect –mute 3 –management 127.0.0.1 34001 –keepalive 5 60 –duplicate-cn –client-config-dir /DB/_DB.001/var/register/system/openvpn/ccd

Please HelpDecember 10, 2009 at 2:48 pm #49202
The openvpn message is on the client side or on the server side? Could you clarify it and post the message of the other one?December 10, 2009 at 5:12 pm #49203
The OPEN VPN Message is on the Client Side.
The server message is SUCCESSFUL.December 11, 2009 at 10:04 am #49204
Could you increase verbosity on both to locate what is wrong exactly?December 14, 2009 at 4:51 am #49205
No additional information in the logs from the server.
It seems to me that the Cron is running it like a print job, once the output if successful the job ends.
Do you think I might be correct in my thinking?December 14, 2009 at 3:17 pm #49206
so you can have the output on screen.
Also… why is the “echo” in front of the line?December 14, 2009 at 4:40 pm #49207
When I solely use the results of “ps auxw | grep vpn” the test Fails.
When I use “echo” the result is successful.
Is there another command I can use?
I will remove “–daemon VPN41_H2L” and test it this evening.December 14, 2009 at 7:25 pm #49208
The “echo” command outputs whatever gets as input, so it is accomplished successfully, but the openvpn server is not running.
Point is after you run the command to verify it is running with the “ps auxw”.December 21, 2009 at 4:18 pm #49209
Thank You for your help ppalias, but I am giving up on this project for now. I cannot get it to work and I do not have the time at this moment.
Again, Thank You …..December 21, 2009 at 4:27 pm #49210
Maybe as a request to Fulvio there could be an option to create secondary etc tunnels via the web interface.
