Question

TLS-crypt unwrapping failed

Hi, I was following this tutorial
https://www.digitalocean.com/community/tutorials/how-to-set-up-and-configure-an-openvpn-server-on-ubuntu-20-04
with the exception of forcing traffic through the VPN tunnel. I still can’t seem to be able to connect to my server and I’m getting this error when looking at the status of openvpn-server@.service:

tls-crypt unwrap error: packet authentication failed

Should I check any permissions? In the server.conf file I have the directive set to “tls-crypt ta.key”

Turns out, I didn’t try everything because turning it off and on again suddenly works. Heavy Sigh
