VPN plug-in not listed or available after enabling in GUI

  • Hi All,


    I have spent the weekend installing OMV (2.1) on my raspberry pi 3. After installing, I have applied all available updates so the install is up to date.


    I wanted to say great work to the devs and the community as there is plenty of help and advice through the forums.


    I have an issue with the VPN plugin. I'd like to setup OpenVPN via the GUI but I just can't get the VPN plugins to show in the 'plugins' page.


    I have added the VPN/Remote repository and saved the config. I have rebooted the Pi but they still do not show up in the list of plugins.


    I have tried apt-get install openmediavault-openvpn but it is not found/available to install.


    Not sure what else I need to do but any assistance appreciated.


    Thanks Jata

  • It isn't in the repo for armhf. That is why you won't see it. You can try manually installing it from here but I don't think it works for most people.

  • Haven't tried it (or much else) on the RPi. Too busy porting plugins to 3.0.15+.


    3.0 should be ready within the next 6 months I would think. I don't know what else Volker has in mind for 3.x.

  • Thanks again.


    sorry for the silly question but how do I install the openvpn package you linked? Do I need to copy the file to the server and then do the apt-get command pointing to the local file?


    if so how?


    Im new to Linux and command line stuff!

  • There is only one file in the link I posted. You upload that file with the Upload button in the plugin tab in the OMV web interface.
