OpenVPN does not seem to be connecting to server



  • Hello,

    I am attempting to setup an openvpn client on the firewall, and it doesn't seem to be connecting, 0 bytes sent, 0 bytes received...

    I have the log verbosity set to 5, however, I am not seeing much in the logs

    Any ideas on how I can further troubleshoot this issue?

    How do you know the Server side is working properly?
    When your Client side pfSense Internet access is working and you don't see anything else in the Logs, you have used a wrong IP/Port or the Problem is the Server side.
    Can you for example make Update checks for your pfSense to make sure the connectivity is working in general?
