I have an OpenVPN server (2.3.2) on Debian Wheezy operating in bridged mode. Everything's working fine in terms of the client connecting and getting access to the network(s) it needs. Im trying to add a few bells and whistles through use of the client-connect option. This is the pertinent part of the openvpn config file:
script-security 3 system client-connect /etc/openvpn/scripts/clientconnect.sh
In an attempt to check that the script is actually run, clientconnect.sh consists of this:
#!/bin/bash echo "testing">>/etc/openvpn/scripts/test exit 0
If I run the script from the command line, as expected "testing" is appended to /etc/openvpn/scripts/test every time, and 0 returned.
When I connect from my client, then I get a "testing" in /etc/openvpn/scripts/test. Great!
But when I disconnect, and connect again, I don't get another "testing"
So, to check its actually being run I changed the exit value in clientconnect.sh to 1
sure enough, every attempt to connect from the client then failed because the script returns a non 0 value.
Why does it look like the script isn't being run?
BTW, if I restart the openvpn service on the server then I get "testing" once more, but again, nothing is written on subsequent connections.
Any pointers / Help / Mystic Incantations are all gratefully received! Dylan
