VPN, Alternatives?



  • I've installed openvpn to people in my enterprise to user. I've 2 people that is saying that openvpn is always going down and stay's withtout Internet. Other 2 guys, one it's me, we never have problems…we stay connnected 2 and 3 hours, without no downs, we have always internet and internal ip's.

    I don't know what's happening with other 2 guys, that everything is going down.

    What alternatives i've from openvpn? (I don't want IPSEC).

    Thanks.



  • Instead of switching to something unknown, why not find & fix the original problem?  Increase the verbosity level of your OpenVPN server config and for the users having problems and then see what's going on with them when they keep getting booted off.



  • I've changed the level of logs so i can check what's happening with users. i've changed to level 3. you recommend other level?

    thanks.

    "I don't know what's happening with other 2 guys, that everything is going down."

    And where are these guys?  At their houses, some hotspot like starbucks or something.  You do understand it could be their issue right.  If you have users that stay connected for hours and hours, and then users that have issues.  Where does that point the problem to be…



  • That 2 guys, they've tried at home and with hotspots like 4G pens!

    I've tried yesterday in one computer of some guy with one router and diferent internet connection and it works great… The guy goes home, and with fiber it says to me that we can access internet and is very slow in office network!

    I'm going to check logs...



  • i've changed to level 3. you recommend other level?

    3 is a good start but you can increase it if you need more detail.



  • Make sure they are using the latest openvpn client, they most likely have issues with the computers. I've been using openvpn for like 6 months and it's been rock solid.

    I connect into openvpn to my home network from work pretty much every single day, and it stays connected from the morning until I leave pretty much..  So rock solid for 8 hours at a time 5 days a week for years have been doing this..
