5. Create configuration file "C:\Program Files (x86)\OpenVPN\config\wtware.ovpn" :

Code: Select all

dev tun

ca   "C:/Program Files (x86)/OpenVPN/easy-rsa/keys/ca.crt"
cert "C:/Program Files (x86)/OpenVPN/easy-rsa/keys/server.crt"
key  "C:/Program Files (x86)/OpenVPN/easy-rsa/keys/server.key"
dh   "C:/Program Files (x86)/OpenVPN/easy-rsa/keys/dh1024.pem"

For this configuration file terminal server IP will be IP This IP you should specify in Wtware configuration file server= parameter. If terminal server has another IP, don't forget to turn on routing on server with openvpn and specify route to terminal on terminal server.

6. Run command line as administrator, type:

Red frame - the command to run.
Blue frame - this text is printed before terminal connects.
Green frame - this text is printed after terminal connects.

Items 1-6 you are to perform once, during server configuration. Then create keys for terminal. Make sure that terminal connects. Then restart server. Automatically during server boot openvpn service will start for every file with .ovpn extension from "C:\Program Files (x86)\OpenVPN\config\" directory.

You should create keys for every terminal connection. Every terminal has it's own personal keys. It's case sensitive! For example to create keys for terminal with 00.0C.29.DF.50.E3 MAC-address:

Ready THREE keys files:
  • ca.crt
  • 00.0C.29.DF.50.E3.crt
  • 00.0C.29.DF.50.E3.key
You can find them in C:\Program Files (x86)\OpenVPN\easy-rsa\keys\
