Tunneling VPS traffic through VPN (Using VPS as OpenVPN Client)
I am trying to tunnel the traffic coming from a VPS through a VPN but it doesn’t seem to be working.
The current .ovpn file that I am using seems to work just fine on my local machine, but when I launch it on the VPS it just hangs here:
Thu Aug 13 01:23:47 2015 OpenVPN 2.3.2 x86_64-pc-linux-gnu [SSL (OpenSSL)] [LZO] [EPOLL] [PKCS11] [eurephia] [MH] [IPv6] built on Dec 1 2014 Thu Aug 13 01:23:47 2015 WARNING: No server certificate verification method has been enabled. See http://openvpn.net/howto.html#mitm for more info. Thu Aug 13 01:23:47 2015 Socket Buffers: R=[212992->131072] S=[212992->131072] Thu Aug 13 01:23:47 2015 UDPv4 link local: [undef] Thu Aug 13 01:23:47 2015 UDPv4 link remote: [undef]
I have been googling for hours and can’t find an answer, so I am assuming it is simple, but I don’t have the experience to answer it on my own.
It seems to not be binding and not connecting to the remote IP address. What am I doing wrong?
