My client machine is Ubuntu 11.04, my server machine is Ubuntu 10.10. I'm trying to achieve the simplest quick and dirty solution possible to get all my client machine's traffic to be redirected to the server machine and from there to the internet.
For the I'm trying to follow this guide http://openvpn.net/index.php/open-source/documentation/miscellaneous/78-static-key-mini-howto.html
Being new the openvpn, I've looked at the logs but I think that the client does not even attempt to contact the server to open the connection. Am I missing some configuration option or should I not be starting the client the same method I'm starting the server daemon?
On the server I have configured the following:
root@domU-12-31-39-16-42-4D:/etc/openvpn# cat /etc/openvpn/server.conf dev tun ifconfig 10.8.0.1 10.8.0.2 secret /etc/openvpn/static.key push "redirect-gateway def1 bypass-dhcp" proto udp comp-lzo status /var/log/openvpn-status.log log-append /var/log/openvpn.log keepalive 10 120 persist-key persist-tun ping-timer-rem verb 7
On the client machine I have configured the following:
root@maxim-desktop:/etc/openvpn# cat /etc/openvpn/client.conf dev tun ifconfig 10.8.0.1 10.8.0.2 secret /etc/openvpn/static.key proto udp comp-lzo persist-key persist-tun keepalive 10 120 persist-key persist-tun ping-timer-rem status /var/log/openvpn-status.log log-append /var/log/openvpn.log remote ec2-50-17-124-16.compute-1.amazonaws.com 1194 resolv-retry infinite verb 7
I'm basically following this guide http://openvpn.net/index.php/open-source/documentation/miscellaneous/78-static-key-mini-howto.html and still, when I open the vpn connection on the client side I don't get all my traffic to be redirected through the vpn server.
