VPN not working after restore

Hi all,

I had a backup (IPF) from a working machine. VPN was configured with OpenVPN and I could access / dial in from my mobile phone. After a hardware failure I reinstalled 158 again from scratch and restored my IPF. It’s showing the same configuration as I had before but it’s not working.

Can it be that any one of the certificates is now wrong because the Box generated a set of new keys upon the first start?

How can I debug that?

Thanks a lot in advance,

Your restore from your backup will replace all the certificates, conf files etc to the state they were in when the backup was done.

When you say it is not working do you mean that your client fails to connect or that it connects but then fails with the certificate handshake or what?

What messages are in the OpenVPN server log and in your OpenVPN client log.

The OpenVPN server log can be accessed from the Logs - System Logs menu and selecting OpenVPN in the dropdown box and then pressing Update.

Was the backup you restored from, from Core Update 158 or recent or from a much older Core Update?
