I have been happy with OpenVPN so far. But I have other issues.
Following is the situation right now : - OpenVPN server installed on Amazon Linux. - OpenVPN client installed on Windows 7. - Set up port forwarding and Masquerading as mentioned in the video on OpenVPN server. - Can establish VPN connection and RDP into all windows instances in the VPC without any problems.
SSH over this OpenVPN connection doesn't work "properly". What I mean is, I can connect via SSH to a ubuntu instance in the VPC but after connecting when the shell pops up it shows me the date/time but I cannot type into the shell. The SFTP window which opens up on my SSH client also cannot list files.
MySQL connection doesn't work properly, I can establish a connection to the MySQL server in the VPC via MySQL workbench, but I cannot select the database and run a query, I can only 'see' the database.
What am I missing ?
