#909 closed enhancement (wontfix)

OpenVPN should be able to run as TCP, or UDP or Both

Reported by: JonTheNiceGuy <jon@…> Owned by:
Priority: normal Milestone:
Component: fon-plugin-openvpn Version: (Gari jr.)
Severity: normal
Cc: ramirez.javier@… Hardware: both


By amending the following files, OpenVPN could run in TCP-Server mode, UDP mode or run both.


#     option 'proto' 'udp'
#     option 'dev' 'tun-ovpn'
#     option 'server' ''

/etc/init.d/openvpn - note there's no logic to this currently - This just arbitrarily starts both up. Some logic might be a good idea :)

// Search for the line: eval "$SSD -q -b -p '$PID' ... etc
// Replace it with the following:
                ARGS_U="$ARGS --dev tun-ovpn-u --server --proto udp"
                ARGS_T="$ARGS --dev tun-ovpn-t --server --proto tcp"
                eval "$SSD -q -b -p '$PID' -x $BIN -S -- --syslog 'openvpn-u($s)' --writepid '$PID' $ARGS_U"
                eval "$SSD -q -b -p '$PID' -x $BIN -S -- --syslog 'openvpn-t($s)' --writepid '$PID' $ARGS_T"

Patch to cover selecting between TCP and UDP attached to #1188. I can't see any way to do both TCP and UDP, not without hacking at the /etc/init.d/openvpn file more than I'm comfortable with.

  • Resolution set to wontfix
  • Status changed from confirmed to closed

Since #1188 covers switching between TCP and UDP, this leaves only running both for this ticket. Since implementing that probably becomes messy, we'll just leave it with selecting either TCP or UDP.

I've installed and the wpm mdolue of openvpn to work with webmin. This was the easy part. Creating the ca, crt and pem keys was easy. However, I've ran into one problem after another after trying to configure the vpn for either tun or tap. I couldn't get tap to configure at all. However, inspite of the problems I'm having, I like the webmin interface, as it certainly saves a lot of typing. Also, through it, I can visually see what's required of setting up a vpn.
