Service not running or connecting...
After setting up OpenVPN for the first time, it seems as if the service isn't running:
When trying to connect, I get the following logs as well:
Tue Feb 16 14:04:02 2021 OpenVPN 2.4.9 x86_64-w64-mingw32 [SSL (OpenSSL)] [LZO] [LZ4] [PKCS11] [AEAD] built on Apr 16 2020 Tue Feb 16 14:04:02 2021 Windows version 6.2 (Windows 8 or greater) 64bit Tue Feb 16 14:04:02 2021 library versions: OpenSSL 1.1.1f 31 Mar 2020, LZO 2.10 Tue Feb 16 14:04:07 2021 TCP/UDP: Preserving recently used remote address: [AF_INET]xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx:1194 Tue Feb 16 14:04:07 2021 UDP link local (bound): [AF_INET][undef]:1194 Tue Feb 16 14:04:07 2021 UDP link remote: [AF_INET]xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx:1194 Tue Feb 16 14:05:07 2021 TLS Error: TLS key negotiation failed to occur within 60 seconds (check your network connectivity) Tue Feb 16 14:05:07 2021 TLS Error: TLS handshake failed Tue Feb 16 14:05:07 2021 SIGUSR1[soft,tls-error] received, process restarting
Any direction would be much appreciated.
Obviously the server is not reachable from the client.
So check the path between. Do you control both, client and server? Is there a firewall in front of the server?
Some more details will be needed.
@viragomann Yes I control both. All firewall rules are set up by the wizard. I don't have a single idea what could be wrong at this point
It is off and won't turn on. No matter if I create a new server...

As long as this
isn't running, its normal the OpenVPN client won't be able to connect.
So, first things first :
Start the OpenVPN Server "New_VPN" and look at the log :
if it stops executing, it should log the reason.
No matter if I create a new server...
Somewhat normal, if you use the same 'wrong' settings.
What settings ?
These settings : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jQHqPq7ftz4 are known to work.
