[Support] Linuxserver.io - OpenVPN AS


Recommended Posts

Hello,

 

I have two problems with openvpn-as:

FIRST PROBLEM

i've also got the Error

SESSION ERROR: SESSION: Your session has expired, please reauthenticate (9007)

and I am at a loss of what exactly i have to do to fix it.

 

My setup:

(1) I've installed the openvpn-as container in bridge mode - i set up another user name (also with admin access), then login as said user and delete the standard admin user.

(2) I switch the network mode in the container to a custom proxynet (nginx setup from spaceinvader video)  so that i can reach my openvpn user and admin login from anywhere

(3) i edit the as.config file entry "boot_pam_users.0=" and put random characters in, so that my admin acc is not accesible if it was reset during switching of dhe network mode

(4) i go to my web interface login of openvpn: openvpn.***.* -> it opens to the user login page

-> i can login as my created user

(5) i go to openvpn.***.*/admin it opens to the admin login page

-> i get said error on login attempt with my created admin user

 

Now, people linked to this POST a couple of posts back.

There it says, regarding error solution:

"

1. iptables issues on host (either not installed or missing kernel modules)

2. you didn’t add cap-add NET_ADMIN

3. you’re using an unsupported networking method (host or macvlan)

"

1) i do not know what this means or what i have to check and possible fix

2) i've checked in advanced view, docker container is still created with "cap-add NET_ADMIN"

3) i do not know exactly what this means, is it possible that you cannot run openvpn on a custom setup unraid network (in my case "proxynet" and letsencrypt) - does it only run on "bridge" mode?

 

SECOND PROBLEM

Maybe related to first problem.

 

With my setup (as explained above) i can go on my mobile, go to my openvpn domain and download the access file for the mobile openvpn client.

BUT when i try to connect to my openvpn server the connection times out.

Openvpn is configured on UDP 1194 and i've forwarded this port to my unraid server (as per spaceinvaders video).

Any idea what could prevent it from getting a connection?

 

Thanks for the people reading this and in general developing this container.

Try accessing on the ip directly, not via reverse proxy

Hi all.  I recently upgraded my server.  All new hardware.  New cache pool.  I backed up old appdata and restored on new cache drive.  All of my dockers are working except for this one.  I can not access the webui at all.  I get this recurring error in the log file. 

 

/usr/local/openvpn_as/scripts/openvpnas: No such file or directory

 

I changed the mnt/user to mnt/cache as suggested in a previous post but still not working.  It was working perfectly before I migrated everything to the new server.

Having issue with OpenVPN-as WebUI not working, I get a page not found error. I suspect this is an issue with bond0, I added an Interface variable for bond0 but still have same issue. Network Type is set to Bridge. I have removed and reinstalled docker always with same result. Any help would be apprecaited.

I just resolved my issue. From the dockers console I ran the following commands which allowed me to login. 


/usr/local/openvpn_as/scripts/sacli --key "vpn.server.daemon.enable" --value "false" ConfigPut
/usr/local/openvpn_as/scripts/sacli --key "vpn.daemon.0.listen.protocol" --value "tcp" ConfigPut
/usr/local/openvpn_as/scripts/sacli --key "vpn.server.port_share.enable" --value "true" ConfigPut
/usr/local/openvpn_as/scripts/sacli start

 

 

This worked for a while.  Just tried to log in and the same error is back:

The readme tells you not to set/change the interface in bridge

Thanks, I saw that but saw another post that mentioned it. It started working after I added a 3rd Key Variable called INTERFACE and set it to bond0. However didnt work initially, I stopped the array to adjust the network settings and when I restarted the array it started working perfectly.

Hello.  I have been trying to follow all of the connection issues folks have been having with the web ui.  I have tried several options, but with no luck.  Things I can confirm include 1194 being forwarded locally, container running in bridge mode with no additional changes to the setup.  This has all worked in the past, but for some reason no longer works.  I have also tried removing and adding the container back.  Any assistance would be appreciated.

 

Bonus issue - On the client side, getting the ns cert type deprecated issue.  Any assistance with that would too be appreciated.

 

Thanks in advance for any help.

Hi, I am trying to install this docker. After I install it, when I click WebUI i cannot access the web interface:


./run: line 3: /usr/local/openvpn_as/scripts/openvpnas: No such file or directory

Any idea how to solve this?

So, I managed to solve it by myself. I created a new appdata2 folder>it did not work. I cleared the cache of chrome and mozilla>it works.

Same here. Docker simply does not work as is. Has anyone got working instructions?

components, some of which fall under different licenses. By using OpenVPN

of the license for each respective component. For more information, you can
find our complete EULA (End-User License Agreement) on our website
(http://openvpn.net), and a copy of the EULA is also distributed with the
Access Server in the file /usr/local/openvpn_as/license.txt.
5. This software is provided "as is" and any expressed or implied warranties,
including, but not limited to, the implied warranties of merchantability
and fitness for a particular purpose are disclaimed. In no event shall
OpenVPN Inc. be liable for any direct, indirect, incidental,
special, exemplary, or consequential damages (including, but not limited
to, procurement of substitute goods or services; loss of use, data, or
profits; or business interruption) however caused and on any theory of
liability, whether in contract, strict liability, or tort (including
negligence or otherwise) arising in any way out of the use of this
software, even if advised of the possibility of such damage.
6. OpenVPN Inc. is the sole distributor of OpenVPN Access Server
licenses. This agreement and licenses granted by it may not be assigned,
sublicensed, or otherwise transferred by licensee without prior written
consent of OpenVPN Inc. Any licenses violating this provision
will be subject to revocation and deactivation, and will not be eligible
for refunds.
7. A purchased license entitles you to use this software for the duration of
time denoted on your license key on any one (1) particular device, up to
the concurrent user limit specified by your license. Multiple license keys
may be activated to achieve a desired concurrency limit on this given
device. Unless otherwise prearranged with OpenVPN Inc.,
concurrency counts on license keys are not to be divided for use amongst
multiple devices. Upon activation of the first purchased license key in
this software, you agree to forego any free licenses or keys that were
given to you for demonstration purposes, and as such, the free licenses
will not appear after the activation of a purchased key. You are
responsible for the timely activation of these licenses on your desired
server of choice. Refunds on purchased license keys are only possible
within 30 days of purchase of license key, and then only if the license key
has not already been activated on a system. To request a refund, contact us
through our support ticket system using the account you have used to
purchase the license key. Exceptions to this policy may be given for
machines under failover mode, and when the feature is used as directed in
the OpenVPN Access Server user manual. In these circumstances, a user is
granted one (1) license key (per original license key) for use solely on
failover purposes free of charge. Other failover and/or load balancing use
cases will not be eligible for this exception, and a separate license key
would have to be acquired to satisfy the licensing requirements. To request
a license exception, please file a support ticket in the OpenVPN Access
Server ticketing system. A staff member will be responsible for determining
exception eligibility, and we reserve the right to decline any requests not
meeting our eligibility criteria, or requests which we believe may be
fraudulent in nature.
8. Activating a license key ties it to the specific hardware/software
combination that it was activated on, and activated license keys are
nontransferable. Substantial software and/or hardware changes may
invalidate an activated license. In case of substantial software and/or
hardware changes, caused by for example, but not limited to failure and
subsequent repair or alterations of (virtualized) hardware/software, our
software product will automatically attempt to contact our online licensing
systems to renegotiate the licensing state. On any given license key, you
are limited to three (3) automatic renegotiations within the license key
lifetime. After these renegotiations are exhausted, the license key is
considered invalid, and the activation state will be locked to the last
valid system configuration it was activated on. OpenVPN Inc.reserves the
right to grant exceptions to this policy for license holders under
extenuating circumstances, and such exceptions can be requested through a
ticket via the OpenVPN Access Server ticketing system.
9. Once an activated license key expires or becomes invalid, the concurrency
limit on our software product will decrease by the amount of concurrent
connections previously granted by the license key. If all of your purchased
license key(s) have expired, the product will revert to demonstration mode,
which allows a maximum of two (2) concurrent users to be connected to your
server. Prior to your license expiration date(s), OpenVPN Inc. will attempt
to remind you to renew your license(s) by sending periodic email messages
to the licensee email address on record. You are solely responsible for
the timely renewal of your license key(s) prior to their expiration if
continued operation is expected after the license expiration date(s).
OpenVPN Inc. will not be responsible for any misdirected and/or undeliverable
email messages, nor does it have an obligation to contact you regarding
your expiring license keys.
10. Any valid license key holder is entitled to use our ticketing system for
support questions or issues specifically related to the OpenVPN Access
Server product. To file a ticket, go to our website at http://openvpn.net/
and sign in using the account that was registered and used to purchase the
license key(s). You can then access the support ticket system through our
website and submit a support ticket. Tickets filed in the ticketing system
are answered on a best-effort basis. OpenVPN Inc. staff
reserve the right to limit responses to users of our demo / expired
licenses, as well as requests that substantively deviate from the OpenVPN
Access Server product line. Tickets related to the open source version of

OpenVPN will not be handled here.
11. Purchasing a license key does not entitle you to any special rights or
privileges, except the ones explicitly outlined in this user agreement.
Unless otherwise arranged prior to your purchase with OpenVPN,
Inc., software maintenance costs and terms are subject to change after your
initial purchase without notice. In case of price decreases or special
promotions, OpenVPN Inc. will not retrospectively apply
credits or price adjustments toward any licenses that have already been
issued. Furthermore, no discounts will be given for license maintenance
renewals unless this is specified in your contract with OpenVPN Inc.

So I have a similar problem. I get the SESSION ERROR issue but it's only under the following situations when I'm trying to set up a reverse proxy:

- I use my domain name for the Server Network Settings - Hostname/IP Address

- I use a custom network rather than bridge

 

Under these situations, I can get to the admin page from my domain or from my home network url:943. However, if I try to login to the admin page, it fails with the SESSION ERROR and the vpn service does not work. If I revert to using my home IP and BRIGE, everything pretty much works (though of course I'm not using the reverse proxy.

 

The three console commands posted above did not work for me. 

 

[as an aside, using the INTERFACE variable seems to do jack and shit]

[as a further aside the fucking invalid certificate errors that seem to keep me from using chrome to access the site are annoying AF]

I am trying to access the WebUI but am unable to. I have deleted the docker and the appdata folder using the CA plugin and even created a new appdata folder but still end up with the same issue. When the docker starts to pull down it only brings the last two parts, I suspect the others are corrupt. is there any way to clear those so everything downloads fresh? Log from docker:

Since this is your first post I wonder if you are aware that the WireGuard VPN is builtin to Unraid now:

 

Thanks for your response. I had a look at WireGuard, configuring with your guide was a snap but for some reason I could not get it to work on the client side (ubuntu). 

 

I was able to fix the OVPN-AS container issue by copying the contents of the appdata folder on a working server and pasting to the server that isn't working as there were files missing. Reconfigure and back it up.

Came here looking for help getting to the OpenVPN-AS webui but I will probably just give WireGuard a shot instead.

If you are still interested in OpenVPN-AS....

 

After I corrected my issue I had to use: 

 

https://<yourserverip>:<port>/admin

 

http did not work for me.

Hi. I'm having some issues with openVPNas, and I want to understand them. I'm going to describe a few scenarios and follow up with some questions.

 

 I have installed and configured OpenVPNas on my unraid server (6.8.3) following the latest spaceinvaderone guide here. Note: I additionally forwarded port 943 TCP, so that I could access admin/client gui from outside of my home network.

 

Scenario #1

For the initial setup, I used my WAN IP in the openVPN Server Network Settings. From here, I am able to connect to the admin gui and client gui from inside my network without issue. Next, I tested connecting to the admin/client gui from my iphone on cellular data. If I enter the address "mywanip:943" into a browser, it does not connect. However, if I try "https://mywanip:943", then it connects.

 

Scenario #2

For the initial setup, I used my DOMAIN NAME in the openVPN Server Network Settings. I have a domain registered through namecheap, which I have set up with cloudflare DNS (proxy enabled). I use the "CloudflareDDNS" CA on my unraid server to keep the IP up-to-date. Similar to scenario #1, i can access the admin/client gui internally. However, when i test connection tot he client/admin gui from my iphone, it is failing. Trying address "mydomain.com:943" and "https://mydomain.com:943" fail to connect. However, if i try "https://mywanip:943", then it connects.

 

Questions:

1. In scenario #1, why does the outside connection to the gui only work when manually adding the https:// prefix? It was my understanding that modern browsers (i was using safari) would automatically add the https:// prefix when typing in any address.

 

2. In scenario #2, why can't I connect using the domain name?

 

3. In the spaceinvaderone video, he does not forward port 943. I believe this implies that the only way to get access to the vpn would be for an admin to locally create your user and provide you with the credentials/config file. If i followed this scheme, and set up a subdomain (vpn.mydomain.com) for the openvpn server, what would the purpose of the subdomain be?

 

3a. This is what I was thinking: to grant someone access to the vpn, i'd locally create their account, then instruct them to connect to the vpn.mydomain.com client gui, where they'd log in and be able to (1) download the proper vpn client software and (2) download the config file. Is there an issue with this kind of configuration?

 

4. Ideally i wouldn't like to have to add the port numbers at the end of the web addresses (in the case that i forward 943 to allow users to connect to client gui). How can i modify my setup so that to connect to the client gui on port 943 from outside the network, they only have to type my subdomain vpn.mydomain.com?

 

I am really trying to understand how this all works, so that I can use that knowledge to help set up other dockers/services on my unraid server. I appreciate any and all help.

 

Thanks,

I just resolved my issue. From the dockers console I ran the following commands which allowed me to login. 


/usr/local/openvpn_as/scripts/sacli --key "vpn.server.daemon.enable" --value "false" ConfigPut
/usr/local/openvpn_as/scripts/sacli --key "vpn.daemon.0.listen.protocol" --value "tcp" ConfigPut

I've had OpenVPN-AS running successfully for a while in NAT-mode except it causes Source IP address-based access control that I've used in my LetsEncrypt configurations to operate incorrectly for OpenVPN clients as it acts based upon incorrect Source IP address. Now I'm trying reconfigure OpenVPN-AS from NAT-Mode to Routing-Mode so correct Source IP Addresses will be reported to LetsEncrypt.

 

I've searched this forum as well as Reddit and Google for "unraid openvpn-as routing" and come up short on what I need to move forward.

 

In the OpenVPN-AS Admin WebUI, I've changed Configuration -> VPN Settings -> "Should VPN clients have access to private subnets (non-public networks on the server side)?" from "Yes, Using NAT" to "Yes, Use Routing".

 

I've added a new static route to my access router:

172.27.224.0/20 (i.e., OpenVPN Client Dynamic IP Range) Next Hop to 192.168.1.200 (Unraid static IP) with Hop Distance 1

 

Next, I believe that I need to build a static route in Unraid to route traffic for 172.27.224.0/20 (i.e., OpenVPN Client Dynamic IP Range) to "Somewhere", but I'm not clear how to define it. Since OpenVPN-AS uses Network Type Bridge, I don't think I can assign it a static IP Address (It is currently, however, 172.17.0.5). Can I send it to 172.17.0.1? Do I reference the bridge or the container in some other way?

 

Are there any other modifications required? Will the server and client conf files get updated automatically based on the server modification to push proper routes or do I need to add anything to the Additional OpenVPN Config Directives fields on the server?

 

Current Configuration Info provided, below. Any guidance is extremely appreciated!

 

Current OpenVPN-AS run command:

/usr/local/emhttp/plugins/dynamix.docker.manager/scripts/docker run -d --name='openvpn-as' --net='bridge' -e TZ="America/Los_Angeles" -e HOST_OS="Unraid" -e 'PGID'='100' -e 'PUID'='99' -p '943:943/tcp' -p '9443:9443/tcp' -p '1194:1194/udp' -v '/mnt/user/appdata/openvpn-as':'/config':'rw' --cap-add=NET_ADMIN 'linuxserver/openvpn-as'
