Unexpected behavior of OpenVPN when adding advanced configuration [Solved]



  • Hi,

    I'm using a Radius server to authenticate OpenVPN users and to provide them with IP addresses using the attribute "Framed-IP-Address".
    I have tested that and it's working very well.

    Now when I try to add advanced configuration to my OpenVPN server (I use client-connect and client-connect to run some scripts), users are no longer getting IP addresses from the Radius server but rather they are getting automatic bind from the VPN server.

    Do you have any idea about the issue?

    Thank you!



  • I managed to find out the problem:

    In the configuration file of the OpenVPN server located in /var/etc/openvpn/server1.conf:

    client-connect /usr/local/sbin/openvpn.attributes.sh
    client-disconnect /usr/local/sbin/openvpn.attributes.sh

    The first line is responsible of adding attributes to the connecting clients, one of these attributes is the Radius attribute "Frame-IP-Address".

    These scripts get overridden if the client-connect and client-disconnect were added to the advanced configuration of OpenVPN.

    So to solve the problem, I deleted the "connect-client" entry from the advanced configuration and modified /usr/local/sbin/openvpn.attributes.sh with the necessary lines to execute (the lines I had in my old client-connect script).
