Coronavirus Remote Work...WTware + PiVPN on same Pi?

Post by JPD »

I'd like to RDP through a VPN, and I am able to get WTware to RDP to my computer.

I saw a guide on setting up RPI as an OpenVPN server using a software called PiVPN (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=15VjDVCISj0)

Can I have both WTware and PiVPN on the same Pi, and use that one device to connect through RDP via VPN, or would I need 2 Pi's one of r WTware, and another for PiVPN?

Also I'm having trouble using the CLI in the setup window. It doesn't recognize sudo commands or curl, but it will ls...

Sorry first time with all this stuff, trying to help set up remote work for people during the coronavirus, kinda struggling through...

PiVPN is a set of tools scripts that configure openvpn. If you extract openvpn config file (perhaps, googling about windows-to-pivpn may help, try to connect windows machine to pivpn server), we can pass this config to wtware.

I'm on it, will Google that.

In the interim, if I'd like to run this command on the Pi with WTware already installed, how can I do this?

curl -L https://install.pivpn.io | bash

EDIT: Is it possible I ma thinking about this in the wrong way? If I have an openVPN server running on the network I want to connect to (NOT on the network I am on), would I only need to put in my open VPN key in the setup/config?

There is neither curl nor bash in wtware.

My personal opinion: scripts that configure openvpn are a wrong way. Especially scripts that hide config file from you. Openvpn is not rocket science. Everyone can configure openvpn by writing text config files.

If you have pfsense firewall it works perfect, I have 20 user with wtware and openvpn with google authenticator.
