OpenVPN Setup

  • Hi All,
    Need assistance for setting up Openvpn-As via Docker.
    I have OMV_4_Rock64 intalled on eMMC of Rock64 SBC.

    I followed every bit of this video from TechnoDad How to OpenVPN-as on Openmediavault) to install openvpn-as via Docker
    Installation went OK with no errors, however am stuck at the point :/ when trying to use openvpn-as via the web for the first time (https://myip:943/admin)

    Any help to resolve this will be highly appreciated, as am quite a noob.


  • Hi, I just had the same problem and solved it the following way:

    My host interface is not etho.
    Execute ip a on your server and look for the entry that contains the local IP adress of your server.
    For me it looks like this:

    2: enp3s0: <BROADCAST,MULTICAST,UP,LOWER_UP> mtu 1500 qdisc pfifo_fast state UP group default qlen 1000
    link/ether xy ff:ff:ff:ff:ff:ff
    inet brd scope global enp3s0
    valid_lft forever preferred_lft forever

    Afterwards I was able to access the openvpn configuration page at https://my-ip:943/admin

    Strangely though, the openvpn-as logs accessed via docker logs -tf openvpn-as point me to a wrong IP address to access the admin and client gui.
    The address is in the 172.18.0.x range. ip a shows a network device with a name starting with br- and than a hexadecimal number.
    Does anyone know what that is?
