Fresh Install of OpenVPN Access Server Connection Refused
I have a fresh install of Debian Lamp server, everything works perfectly (Web server, mysql etc). Note: Before I proceed with OpenVPN installation I took a snapshot of my server.
Then I wget the package of OpenVPN and then dpkg -i as their instructions advised.
The first time I installed it I was able to login to the admin panel and do stuff. But i tried to change the hostname in the OpenVPN settings (instead of my IP I set my domain (domain.name.com)) since then I have no access on the Openvpn. I tried to telnet myip 943 and it response with connection refused. I even restored back to the snapshot and proceed with the same steps of installation of OpenVPN and no luck. I dont understand, why this is happening. Even with restoring the server from the snapshot prior the installation did not solve the problem. Any suggestions?
