How to Restart OpenVPN Wizard from Start/Scratch

  • Every time I go into the OpenVPN wizard it picks up where I left off the last time. For example, it continues on step 6 of 11. I need to reset the wizard from scratch. I have tried restoring to a previous configuration, I have of course restarted the unit, etc but I do NOT want to finish the wizard as I have incorrect selections. How can I reset the wizard? I am running 2.4.5-RELEASE-p1, FreeBSD 11.3-STABLE

    Step 6 of 11 (Certificate Authority Selection) is the default after selecting Local User Access as Backend Type.
    You can edit any setting after the wizard is finished in VPN > OpenVPN > Servers > Edit Server anyway.


  • I appreciate the fact that I can change the settings later but I would like to know how to completely reset the wizard so it starts from the beginning again. I find that any of the wizards always retain what was previously selected and/or previously completed. It would be good to reset it to start from the beginning, there should be an option to do this?

    Just run through it.. Then delete the instance if you don't want it. And start the wizard again and it will start from step 1.
