OpenVPN TLS handshake fail
I followed this tutorial to setup a VPN server.
However, then I try to connect with it, it gaves a handshake failure. I tried to see with ngrep if the server was receiving any requests, and it is. So, the problem is somewhere in the client.
I guess that I messed up somewhere in following the tutorial but I don’t know where. I tried to change to TCP and to port 443 and no results.
My client config:
proto tcp (tried UDP and TCP and same result)
remote <ip> 443
My server config:
key server.key # This file should be kept secret
server 10.8.0.0 255.255.255.0
push “redirect-gateway def1 bypass-dhcp”
push “dhcp-option DNS 126.96.36.199”
push “dhcp-option DNS 188.8.131.52”
keepalive 10 120
