[SOLVED] OpenVPn Connection Isses,
Hi, sorry, this is my first experience with VPNs and OpenVPN so i need some basic pointers, it can be confusing running through the howto pages when i am not entirely sure what i should be doing.
i've setup an OpenVPN service to run it as a limited user using:
now that i have the daemon running i am trying to connect to the UltraVPN service without any su rights using:
sudo openvpn --dev tun --user username --group users
openvpn --config ~/UltraVPN.conf
the following warnings are output:
Thu Mar 25 20:28:37 2010 Note: Cannot ioctl TUNSETIFF tun: Operation not permitted (errno=1)
Thu Mar 25 20:28:37 2010 Note: Attempting fallback to kernel 2.2 TUN/TAP interface
Thu Mar 25 20:28:37 2010 Cannot allocate TUN/TAP dev dynamically
Thu Mar 25 20:28:37 2010 Exiting
Thu Mar 25 20:27:38 2010 WARNING: No server certificate verification method has been enabled.
im not really sure what either means or how to fix them. any ideas?
Thank you. :)
