OpenVPN doesnt seem to work/connect



  • Hi all,

    Fresh PFSense 2.4.3 install with OpenVPN, went through Wizard for OpenVPN, added client export - exported android config, imported onto the phone using OpenVPN App, all I get is the spinning dial with and OpenVPN pops up and says reconnecting. Deleted VPN server, went through the wizard again and changed port number to 1197: Still no dice.
    Packet capture shows my Phones external IP in the capture talking to my External IP of PFSense on the correct port - no logs in OpenVPN/Systems Logs>OpenVPN. SO its getting through PFSense, I have a rule on WANT for any Source, dest WAN Address on port 1197.

    Any Ideas?

    Phone provider is 3 (UK), though I have changed port number in case they where blocking 1194.

    I have OpenVPN to use local user auth and no TLS/Certs for testing, once working I can add certs. UDP on IPV4 only.  Remote Access (User Auth).

    I have the following now showing up in the logs:
    Apr 16 13:33:59 openvpn 11061 MANAGEMENT: Client connected from /var/etc/openvpn/server1.sock
    Apr 16 13:33:59 openvpn 11061 MANAGEMENT: CMD 'status 2'
    Apr 16 13:34:00 openvpn 11061 MANAGEMENT: CMD 'quit'
    Apr 16 13:34:00 openvpn 11061 MANAGEMENT: Client disconnected
    Apr 16 13:35:01 openvpn 11061 MANAGEMENT: Client connected from /var/etc/openvpn/server1.sock
    Apr 16 13:35:01 openvpn 11061 MANAGEMENT: CMD 'status 2'
    Apr 16 13:35:02 openvpn 11061 MANAGEMENT: CMD 'quit'
    Apr 16 13:35:02 openvpn 11061 MANAGEMENT: Client disconnected

    Thanks
