I am trying to set up a P2S VPN. I have created all the certificates, however, I cannot connect with open VPN - I downloaded a sample and used it to configure my openvpn connection - still does not work
That site has no documentation on VPN, I have followed the VPN directions. the only VPN I can get to work is PPTP - which I do not want to use (not secure enough)
I have followed these directions and cannot get open vpn to work laptop to site (i need to be able to access my NAS no matter where I am) - also the openVPN does not give me directions for laptop to site
Just sharing that I have found this to be a stumbling block. I’ve not found how to get my PC to use OpenVPN to connect to my LAN over the Internet. All I ever see is reference to using the OpenVPN client from https://openvpn.net/ (I think).
Would love to see a docuemented solution.
If you still have difficulties to connect your windows/linux openvpn client to connect to your GWN7000 openvpn server, can you post your client logs, and GWN7000 debug syslog. I will try to help starting from the logs.
@GS_Tian, thanks. But for me at least, what I need is a step-by-step of how to cofigure the client in the first place. While at first glance this may seem to be beyond the GWN7000, I know that I have seen other vendors, such as Linksys, publish step-by-step instrucitons on how to configure Windows clients to work with their products. As the GWN7000 works beyond phones, it is my opinion that such documentation is warranted.
This is the information which I would like as well - then I will be able to follow it and you should stop getting this question (I saw threads where it was requested before and never completely answered)
Question - is this documentation going to be provided? - if the answer is no, I will change router manufacturers.
I don’t think yours is a shared position, and above all this is a forum, not a place where you can make in-depth technical requests, and even less veiled threats.
There is a helpdesk where you can ask these questions.
this is not a veiled threat, this is a necessary position - if I cannot find proper documentation to provide my customer with the service they request with this router then I must change routers - sorry if you do not like that position
you’re simply in the wrong place to argue or make demands like that.
ok, I have issued a ticket in the helpdesk and will await their response - sorry for the time and place misstep. I do not often need to use forums.
a technical forum is not the place to argue or create problems, it is a suitable place to compare with other professionals and ask for help.
Here is a video.
It gives an step by step example for GWN7000 openvpn with GXP phone starting arounf 47:10 .
Though it’s not a Windows/Linux client. Hope it helps.
