I'm not sure if this is the right place to post this but I just updated to unraid 6.8.1 and updated openvpn-as but now it doesn't work. (unable to connect with phone like before). I also can not pull up the web gui as well. I deleted the open-vpn from the docker and reinstalled but it still doesn't have websui. it simply says unable to connect.

 

Also I connected to it right before the server update and docker update just fine. Any ideas what is going on?

many thanks, that fixed that error.

 

Is there any way to run it as a custom ip address?, as i cannot connect to my other custom ip addressed dockers this way.

 

I guess I may have to run this on a separate machine to allow access. It is the same issue with wireguard.

Not sure, it's a docker security feature to block connections between host and macvlan. I don't recommend using macvlan unless you really have to.

 

I only have 2 services on macvlan just so I can set up an ip based rule to let them bypass vpn. But even that is a fringe case

just to add a datapoint, I couldn't access the webui after installing fresh through CA

 

I deleted and deleted the appdata, then reinstalled through CA, opened logs and saw it was doing a bunch of setup, waited till it was done, then was able to access webui.

 

x% of times it must not do the setup correctly, so if you can't access the webui after a fresh install (don't change any setting, it should be bridge) delete the app and appdata folder and try again.

I couldn't access it for 2 days but since I didn't get any help from the forum so I left it running as I had other things to do. I came back today due to this reply and just tried the web UI and it was working. No idea what is going on at all.

 

 

on a side note. is there a way to get openvpn files onto iphone's openvpn connect app without being on the network? or is there another openvpn app in the appstore that would work?

 

edit nvm. It seems I needed to have https:// in front for it to work correctly.

Ok my router setting calls it "static leases". I don't know if it is the actual IP, I just thought so. I actually don't know what the setting does 😅

I think I solved the problem. I needed to check a setting called "Loopback" in my router. Don't know what it does, but I think it did the trick.
