OpenVPN doesn't work today

Posted May 5, 2018 3.7k views

Today I can’t connect to my OpenVPN. Just “waiting for server” and nothing more. Yesterday and for a whole month it worked as smooth as butter. What should I do to fix it? No changes were made, so my noob’s level of administrating don’t play a role)))

SSH works, server runs, so it seems, that only OpenVPN makes such troubles.

I would recommend logging in and:

  1. Restarting your OpenVPN service with service openvpn restart
  2. Checking the logs created by OpenVPN in /var/log/syslog

you need to check your log file to see the action history for tracking, and then try to open incognito and restart it, it might work.
