OMV 5: OpenVPN with Docker on ARM

  • Anyone know how to set up OpenVPN in Docker/Portainer on ARM boards? I have recently upgraded to OMV 5, but can't find any straight forward OpenVPN dockers for ARM boards (linuxserver/openvpn-as isn't supported...).

    While the most popular image on docker hub doesn't have an image on docker hub, its github repo does have an aarch64 dockerfile - https://github.com/kylemanna/docker-openvpn. It should have everything need in the readme to get it going.

    omv 7.0.5-1 sandworm | 64 bit | 6.8 proxmox kernel

    plugins :: omvextrasorg 7.0 | kvm 7.0.13 | compose 7.1.4 | k8s 7.1.0-3 | cputemp 7.0.1 | mergerfs 7.0.4


    omv-extras.org plugins source code and issue tracker - github - changelogs


    Please try ctrl-shift-R and read this before posting a question.

    Please put your OMV system details in your signature.
    Please don't PM for support... Too many PMs!

  • Thanks to both of you! :)

    So this have to be configured via terminal and not within the Portainer GUI itself?


    Then I much more would like the ledokun/armhf-docker-transmission-openvpn which seems like an ordinary Docker set up(?)

    Yes, my suggestion requires the command line ( =O ). If someone says an image works, use it. I don't use vpn.

  • In Portainer you can paste a version 2 docker-compose file into the Create Stack > Stacks > Add stack page and it will create the container for you.

    OMV AMD64 7.x on headless Chenbro NR12000 1U 1x 8m Quad Core E3-1220 3.1GHz 32GB ECC RAM.

  • Cool! I will test it out.


    All I want to do is connect to my backup server (which is on a different location) remotely. I am not going to do big data transfers, I just want to access the router and the server there - in case I want to change some settings. In that case, do you suggest using Wireguard before OpenVPN? The most important to me is security.

  • I used ledokun/armhf-docker-transmission-openvpn:latest It worked perfectly for me.

    Could you please tell me where to get this openVPN for armhf (rpi 3B+) docker and how to set it up in OMV? The plug in doesn't work anymore for me and I was looking for a replacement in docker but couldn't find anything for arm/raspberry pi.

  • Thank you for your reply! Basically I only need a VPN to connect to my home network from the outside through my raspberry pi...what I see here it is much more than that it includes also transmission? On top of this I do not have a custom VPN provide (like NordVPN or similar). Is there a more simple docker out here with just the openvpn (like the plug in OMV which does not work anymore).
