  • That is a pity. So the openvpn plugin is not working for the raspberry at this moment.

    I don't know much about openvpn but the plugin not working should have nothing to do with the RPi. The openvpn package wouldn't be provided if it didn't work on arm devices like the RPi. And the plugin doesn't do anything architecture specific.

  • Its strange what he send yesterday - there is openvpn process runing, but parameters are really strange.

    for example:

    --config /etc/openvpn/openvpn.conf (cannot find /etc/openvpn/openvpn.conf anywhere in github sourcecode of plugin)

    --client-config-dir /etc/openvpn/ccd (cannot find /etc/openvpn/ccd anywhere in github sourcecode of plugin)

    --crl-verify /etc/openvpn/crl.pem (cannot find /etc/openvpn/crl.pem anywhere in github sourcecode of plugin)

    These parameters are not set by OMV plugin imho...

    Are you sure "Birdybird" you didn't try to install OpenVPN on you own and then installed as OMV plugin? Are you trying this plugin on clean installation of OMV?


  • pcmag.biz i beliefe. I googled openvpn on omv5 with portainer. There is a complete manual online. But problem is i have no access to local files. Also i have a sdcard with

    Raspian buster with desktop with minidlna

    And pivpn where i can access the local files.

    So i hoped that omv5 with openvpn has also access to local files.

  • Btw, it's a bit like hijkacking his thread, but as i have OpenVPN-as installed via Portainer (i guess similarly to OP), running but malfunctionning (i can connect to the VPN from outside, but i can't reach anything through the VPN, and i haven't yet taken the time to correct it), is there any major difference between the plugin and the docker container ?


    Is the plugin a VPN client or a server ?


    Thx
