having issues connecting to OpenVPN from Linux Lite



  • hi
    i trying to setup openvpn client to work on linux lite.. currently i know my openvpn dns leaks i guess as when i do what iis my ip i dont get 192.168.110.5 for my vpn

    but i trying to get it setup on linux lite..
    i followed different articles, and the netgate docs (didnt help)

    you download the certs ca keys tls from pfsnes do a create vpn on linux and import each one.
    and gateway is your dns name:1194

    tried another said download viscocity export
    and when i do import on config.conf it gives me error with dev tun

    then i tried the cisco vpn import and tried doing it.. 0 luck

    what is the exact setup for linux lite 5.0 and set it up. it just keeps trying to connect stops trys to connect. stops... i dont know how to see the system log for it i just see it spinning bottom right

    is there a good setup pic how you do it..



  • I assume, you are using the NetworkManager on your Linux.
    Possibly you need to install the OpenVPN package for NM before you can go on.

    Set a password for the PKCS12 file in the client export utility and download the archive (bundled config).
    Extract it to a folder on you Linux and import the .ovpn in NM. Enter the password for the private key and your user date and connect.
    That's the whole magic.



  • ok ill give a try.. im using the netwrork connection section
    and it offers
    add openvpn, import vpn..

    some artickles talked about running the install apt openvpn

    other artickles just go right into the connection but all give me the dev tun error. that its not a proper vpn file

    but ill give that a try and see how i do



  • @viragomann didnt work..
    when i follow the instructions here for pfsense
    https://www.ceos3c.com/pfsense/pfsense-openvpn-linux-client/
    i get the dev tun error in the pic
    i did try using "openvpn" option and do what it said in the document..
    it wouldnt allow me to save.. unless i added a user password.. dunno what thats for
    but didnt work..

    i tried it on my ubunutu vm too doesnt work.. it doesnt give me issue not adding a user password but its not working right.. pics 1 2 are linux lite.. the 3rd one is ubuntu setup
    open1.PNG open2.PNG open3.PNG

    and no issues connecting with my windows openvpn client
    figure how to get it to save had to click the little man body for password and choose no password

    in this pic it asks me for certificate passwords but not sure what password it needs this under linux lite

  • @comet424 said in having issues connecting to OpenVPN from Linux Lite:

    @viragomann didnt work..

    You didn't what I suggested. So why do you come back to me with your issue now?



  • @viragomann thats correct PKCS12 password didnt help it..

    pics show OpenVPN packages are installed.. PKCS12 password didnt work
    and like i mentioned OVPN file doesnt work its not a file

    1.. Viscosity bundle doesnt create a .ovpn file thats a inline config (most clients)
    as you can see i imported gives the Same error as importing config.conf
    dev tun error

    so i dont know why i have any info on "user date" what dates do i need
    i have entered the log and password, and that PKCS12 in the private key passwrd

    ive done the gateway domanname.com:1194:udp or domainname.com:1194:upd4

    will not connect
    it just spins on the bottom of the screen and you cant see no logs on whats going on

    i did what you said and none of it worked. so i took screen shots what i did and followed the pfsense step by step as you seen in the link that was what i was showing how it wasnt working and yours didnt work either.. so i just stuck why it cant connect.. why it doesnt like DEV TUN

    but since you think i didnt do what you said i keep googling.. not here to get in trouble opeen 8.PNG
    opeen 9.PNG
    opeen 7.PNG opeen 6.PNG opeen 5.PNG

    i spent 3 or 4 hours last night trying to get your thing to work , researching more trying other tricks etc



  • opeen 10.PNG



  • I never mentioned Viscosity here. The Viscosity bundle is for Viscosity and not for the NetworkManager. In that bundle there is neither a .ovpn nor a PKCS12 file and you cannot import it into NM.



  • sorry my dislexia read wrong
    doesnt matter tried Archive bundle before you can not import OVPN its not a vaild file and i still dont know what you mean "user date" whats the date i enter?

    and Viscosity says it for Network Connection it states it in Pfsense Step by Step says choose Viscosity bundle

    so the start over.. Told you i spent 3 4 hours after your post trying to figure out all options...

    Openconnect (doesnt work)
    OpenVPN (doesnty work there is no way to import an OVPN file not even advanced section)
    Point to Point (Didnt work)
    Cisco Compatible (didnt work)
    Import saved VPN Configured (Doesnt like ovpn its not a vaild VPN file)

    so maybe you can post exact Screen Shots since Archived Bundle doesnt work
    pictures be better

    so which option i choose OpenVPN where is the option to import ovpn only p12 files work you cant even choose a Private key has to be a p12 files not a .key file

    but ya i need a break from this spent a couple hours retrying things didnt work..
    steping away if you can provide step by step photos or step by step what to click be good

    as you can see in the pic.. you choose 1 file the p12 file under Openvpn and it fills 00.PNG



  • @comet424 said in having issues connecting to OpenVPN from Linux Lite:

    doesnt matter tried Archive bundle before you can not import OVPN its not a vaild file

    What is the OpenVPN version on your Linux?

    @comet424 said in having issues connecting to OpenVPN from Linux Lite:

    i still dont know what you mean "user date" whats the date i enter?

    Username and password. However, if your server use SSL authentication only, there is no need for it.

    The archive bundle contains 3 files only:

    • .ovpn
    • .p12
    • .key

    That's all you need.

    As shown in your screenshot, the p12 has to be entered in the User Certificate, CA Cert and Private key box.
    Underneath enter the password you've set in the client export utility.



  • i dont know how to get the the version of openvpn
    it came with linux lite

    also i tried the sudo apt-install openvpn
    something like that

    and the password didnt help wont connect still spins and lock to you seen in other pics
    i cant get continous log to see whats going on like windows

    and how should the gateway be i read some go
    domainname.com
    domainname.com:1194
    domainname.com:1194:udp
    wahts the proper way



  • @comet424 said in having issues connecting to OpenVPN from Linux Lite:

    i dont know how to get the the version of openvpn
    it came with linux lite

    You will find the version in the NetworkManager log.
    /var/log/NetworkManager

    @comet424 said in having issues connecting to OpenVPN from Linux Lite:

    and how should the gateway be i read some go

    The host name or the IP only. The port and the protocol is to be set in the advanced options.



  • so there is no network manger folder or file.. there is a sys log.. and i grabbed this at the bottom as it always times out
    i tried to copy log file to a text file and then post it here but notepad cant read a text file from linux it seems but here is a screen shot of the last bit... it just spins
    maybe i got something not set right.. not sure what all to set... i checked off the 2 checks under advanced... but all its doing is spin lock spin lock spin lock in bottom right... and the pop up tells me it times out..
    internet works. network works, if i use windows same network, it connects to pfsense openvpn.. so server is working
    openbad.PNG openbad2.PNG
    openbad3.PNG
    openbad4.PNG

    this is Ubuntu openvpn and i did the same settings above the 3 p12 file the login password the pck password and i set tun and 1194 and my dns gateway its also stuck in connecting

  • So your LInux uses OpenVPN 2.3.10 as shown in the screenshot. That's a very old version and it's not capable of some current features of the pfSense OpenVPN.
    That would be the reason for the config file import to fail. To configure the client manually won't help here, the connection will fail anyway.
    You should get a new client version.

    If you want to connect with that client, you may have to downgrade some settings of your OpenVPN server and reconfigure all your clients. Alternatively you may setup an additional server on another port for 2.3 clients.
    Settings you may have to change for 2.3:
    TLS Key Usage Mode: TLS Authentication
    Encryption Algorithm: AES-xxx-CBC
    Enable NCP: uncheck
    Compression: disable or LZO
    No IPv6 tunnel or networks



  • ok i did the updates but it wont update past it..
    and ubuntu wont connect dunno why the pic didnt upload but it states
    2.4.7 is that too old too?

    ill try tommorow downgrade or see if i can upgrade newer



  • Any 2.4.x client will be compatible with current pfSense.



  • ok ill re try.. i also unable to get ubuntu to connect but ill see if i can get newer ver of openvpn on the linuxlite



  • @viragomann sorry for the delay
    so i did your setups i also checked off box in client export for clients 2.3 and less.. i did save and imported like you mention
    it still wont connect.. i also tried that link i posted up about the viscoisty bundle with the 2.3 clients and that also finally imported all the settings fine..
    but when connecting still does the spininig then Lock spinning Lock
    i tried the Private PVs12 password and no password.

    i looked in the /var/logs there is not networkmanager but there is a syslog.. i dont know how much to copy and paste.. but i copied some of the system log maybe it tells you whats wrong.. only selected some of it. as i did try things on and off check boxes ..
    maybe its not able to access my domain name,, you cant post sys log your spam bot doesnt let you says i have illegal charactors or something.... so not sure
    is there a way to export the OpenVPN logs to its own file



  • dunno if this will post i used the ubuntu 2.4.7 tried all the options you and the other article said.. i dunno if ithe posting will work of the sys log i only coppied the last little bit

    @comet424 said in having issues connecting to OpenVPN from Linux Lite:

    174.94.31.185:1194

    are you sure the server is running and reacheable on the other side?

    Sep 10 10:59:18 landon-Standard-PC-Q35-ICH9-2009 nm-openvpn-serv[2276]: Connect timer expired, disconnecting
    

    or you have something wrong on your client as packet with incorrect HMAC signature will be discarded without response by the server



  • it connects fine with Android cell phone (on LAN, and Cell network, and from Home depot wifi)

    on my Windows 10 LAN it connects fine with the openvpn client app

    and for both the android and the windows desktop i use the Inline Clients most clients

    the only thing i have checked off in the export client right now is
    Use Random Local PortUse a random local source port (lport) for traffic from the client. Without this set, two clients may not run concurrently.

    as i wanted to be logged in if another user landon logs in. as it says its for 2 or more clients
    and not sure what the HMAC is ill have to google that
    and neither Linux Lite or Ubuntu will work.. Ubuntu Logs would post in here but the Linux Lite lots wouldnt your spam filter said the logs text was no good


  • LAYER 8

    i have created an openvpn server with the wizard
    i have created a test user
    I have password protected the cert
    I have downloaded the bundle archive
    I had no trouble so far

    vpn1.jpg
    vpn2.jpg
    vpn3.jpg
    vpn4.jpg
    vpn5.jpg
    vpn6.png

    total time 3 minutes more or less 😂
    this was linux-lite-5.0-64bit live without any update or additional package



  • @kiokoman could you try that again with older version
    i thought i was running version 5 but because the one computer is older it wasnt installing i had to find a 32bit version
    the one i currently using is
    Linux Lite 3.8
    Release 16.04
    codename xenial
    and the openvpn is version 2.3.10

    ill re try your pictures
    its gotta be cuz its old 32 bit version as the computer is a 32bit process not 64

    maybe its time to drop 32 bit systems
    now i need to see if my ubuntu is the 32 bit version too maybe thats why not working i dunno its all i can think of



  • @comet424
    You obviously are trying to connect using a Viscosity file again.
    Not able to give help for that. Sorry.


  • LAYER 8

    @comet424
    try with the pictures.
    regardless .. it's time to drop 32bit



  • well what i ment i said with the viscosity
    is i only retried it again and it worked loading no errors when i did the Check box for 2.3 and under in the i was just re trying it all after you mention it was too old the openvpn and i couldnt update it to newer

    as the pics ya didnt work.. still spins and lock image..
    ill just have to forget the openvpn on the 32 bit computer and just use the linux as is..
    i was repurpsing Old Dell Servers

    cant win them all lol

    i appreciate all the help.. guess the 32 just doesnt work lol


  • LAYER 8

    ok .. not very clear .. but if you were able to load the config and it spin go check the log of the openvpn server and see if there is something that tell you what's wrong



  • cant.. it doesnt create a openvpn log file just what i showed in the syslog file for openvpn

    no openvp under
    /var/logs
    /etc/networkmanager
    /etc/openvpn

    if there is another location openvpn log files or the vpn log files are stored
    other then in the syslog it seems


  • LAYER 8

    you need to check the log on pfsense
    Status / system logs / openvpn



  • i cleared the log as i was connecting with windows machine etc

    0 logs from connecting from linux lite.. its like its not getting out to the internet but it has internet
    i even did a manual ip address
    192.168.0.200
    255.255.255.0
    192.168.0.1 (gateway)
    1.1.1.1 (changed from 192.168.0.1) dns as i figured maybe the 192.168.0.1 dns was the issue. the dns name gateway <mydns.com>:1194:udp the dyndns name is up to doate.. its just not getting outside
    i didnt check what a HMAC error is

    so the pfsense has 0 logs since the linux isnt even reaching the router.. yet Windows and the android phone works fine go figure lol technology is great when it works. and when it doesnt you always curse at it lol


  • LAYER 8

    hmac when you use a wrong shared-secret key
    in any case
    I can't think on anything else if it's not selinux / apparmor or iptables it's because it's too old



  • ah ok thats what i guess'd because the linux lite is a 32bit version and maybe the ubuntu.. i got these dell servers and i couldnt afford to build my son a computer prices went up for certain parts even 2x4s gone up 300 percent damn pandemic

    but figured since it couldnt run windows 10 i get linux and then he could connect to my network.. but guess cant but least the linux lite will connect to the internet.. Windows XP doesnt seem to connect anymroe so i scrapped that ..

    these were super computers back in the day lol
