OpenVPN doesn't want to connect



  • Hello all,

    I have a problem that i've been trying to solve for couple hours now. When I try to connect to VPN from my desktop I get this

    Sun Oct 15 23:12:31 2017 Warning: cryptapicert used, setting maximum TLS version to 1.1.

    OpenVPN is installed and working on my laptop so pfSense server isn't the problem. Also tried with my laptop from the same network as my desktop and it's working. So network isn't the problem either…

    Then I tried to uninstall/reinstall OpenVPN couple times without any success. Also disabled Windows Firewall to make sure that wasn't the problem.

    I'm kinda out of idea now... Can someone help me?



  • Maybe it's a Client Config error.

    Double check TLS Key is correct on your Desktop.
