OpenVPN + FreeRADIUS on pfSense 2.0RC1

  • Setting up OpenVPN for user authentication with Free RADIUS was pretty easy.  However, when I select Remote Access (SSL/TLS + User Auth) for the Server Mode, I get an error message that SSL only works with internal user authentication.  I was just curious to know why this was?

    It's a limitation of the GUI, but I'll be working on that over the next week or so.

    Previously, the user certificates were held under the user records, so it wasn't possible to make a user cert unless you used the local user manager.

    Now you can make certs however you like, so the GUI can be adjusted to support that scenario. You'll just have to make certificates under the cert manager (or elsewhere if you have another setup for making certs) that have a cn that matches the user name for each user you make.

  • Sounds great. Thanks for answering my question.

    FYI- this should be working in current snapshots (and with a current/updated openvpn-client-export package)
