OpenVPN Server & Client for unRAID 6.2+ (6.1 are still supported)

Since this one is basically dead, is there any OpenVPN server for unraid that will work on a stopped array? I use encryption and I would love to be able to recover in case my battery power ran out and the server had to be shut down.

Not quite the question you asked but is there any reason to not use the WireGuard VPN that is built into recent UnRaid releases.    That can be used regardless of whether the array is started or not.

I have a homogenous OpenVPN everywhere setup. I have not yet looked into wireguard configuration, nor do I know if I can use it on a couple slightly restricted machines. I will look into it though.

Anyone has a mirror of the last (or any!) "openvpn_client_x64.plg" File? I have it running on 3 boxes and it works great.

Im building a new box so I need to install it.

 

Is there another openvpn client for the bare metal unraid?

Oh my. This is some really bad news as far as I am concerned. I heavily rely on the possibility to have en OpenVPN server running on Unraid (not the OpenVPN-server-AS docker container).

 

Is there any way I can backup the plugin from my machine where it is already installed so that I can reinstall it in case I need to ?

- ssh in and run chmod +x /mnt/user/appdata/openvpn-server/easy-rsa/easyrsa to make it executable.

 

I've had OpenVPN installed and running for a couple of years. Somehow I had lost the x attribute and wasn't able to add new clients. Your post hinted me to check it and it fixed my issue.
