Question

Ubuntu 14.4 and openvpn as -- Gui not accessible

After installing openvpn access server on an Ubuntu 14.4 droplet, I am unable to access the Gui. My browser is unable to access the site. Does anyone have an idea what the issue is. I had done this several times before with an earlier version of openvpn access server with no issues.

Found a fix, run:

sudo /usr/local/openvpn_as/bin/ovpn-init

When you get to the section:

Please specify the network interface and IP address to be used by the Admin Web UI: (1) all interfaces: 0.0.0.0 (2) eth0: YOUR_PUBLIC_IP (3) eth0: 10.10.0.8

Make sure you select all interfaces, for some reason it defaults to 2, which makes it not public. Works for me now.

Same problem, worked on a droplet I set up last week but made a new one today and it no longer connects. Can still SSH into the droplet and if I install Apache2 I can access the default page on port 80 so doesn’t look like a firewall issue.

I used Debian 8.1 instead of Ubuntu and the result is the same - can’t access the web UI.
