I'm configuring an OpenVPN (version 2.3.10) server on a Windows 2012 server but I cannot make it to work.
The server is behind a router and I opened the 1194 port and created a rule to forward traffic on this port to the server.
Here is the log I see on the server when I try to connect from a client:
Mon Mar 21 11:11:47 2016 XX.XX.XX.XX:57804 TLS: Initial packet from [AF_INET]XX.XX.XX.XX:57804, sid=fdf7a7ac 0264c7f3 Mon Mar 21 11:12:38 2016 XX.XX.XX.XX:55938 TLS: Initial packet from [AF_INET]XX.XX.XX.XX:55938, sid=1f242a3f e454a525 Mon Mar 21 11:12:48 2016 XX.XX.XX.XX:57804 TLS Error: TLS key negotiation failed to occur within 60 seconds (check your network connectivity) Mon Mar 21 11:12:48 2016 XX.XX.XX.XX:57804 TLS Error: TLS handshake failed Mon Mar 21 11:12:48 2016 XX.XX.XX.XX:57804 SIGUSR1[soft,tls-error] received, client-instance restarting
Where XX.XX.XX.XX is the ip of the client. So I understand from this that the client at least is able to arrive at the server, so there's no routing or firewall issues.
I followed the description provided here Easy Windows Guide Any ideas?
