OpenVPN Access Server is quite easy and fast to setup and includes a web gui.



Clickety click in the gui, plus some hardening:



auth SHA512
cipher AES-256-CBC

Connect with SSH + SOCKS Proxy + OTP:

$ ssh -D 1 to remote host

Ban user:

Ban a user from logging into the VPN or Web server
(doesn’t affect a user who is already logged in — for this, use DisconnectUser below):

/usr/local/openvpn_as/scripts/sacli --user <USER> --key prop_deny --value true UserPropPut

Re-admit a user who was previously banned:

/usr/local/openvpn_as/scripts/sacli --user <USER> --key prop_deny --value false UserPropPut

Disconnect a user:

/usr/local/openvpn_as/scripts//sacli --user <USER> --key prop_deny --value true UserPropPut

Set client cert keysize:

/usr/local/openvpn_as/scripts/sa --keysize=4096 Init

Generating init scripts:

/usr/local/openvpn_as/scripts/openvpnas_gen_init [--auto]

Google Authenticator:

Unlock a secret:

./sacli -u <USER> --lock 0 GoogleAuthLock

Lock a secret:

./sacli -u <USER> --lock 1 GoogleAuthLock

Generate a new, unlocked secret:

./sacli -u <USER> --lock 0 GoogleAuthRegen

Generate a new, locked secret:

./sacli -u <USER> --lock 1 GoogleAuthRegen

Enable Google Authenticator for all accounts:

./sacli --key vpn.server.google_auth.enable --value true ConfigPut

Enable for 1 user:

./sacli --user <USER_OR_GROUP> --key prop_google_auth --value true UserPropPut


./sacli --key vpn.server.google_auth.enable --value false ConfigPut

Disable for 1 user:

./sacli --user <USER_OR_GROUP> --key prop_google_auth --value false UserPropPut

Revoke and reissue secret:

./sacli -u <USER> GoogleAuthRegen

Retrieve current user properties:

./confdba -us -p

Port sharing:

Advanced VPN Settings: port-share 10443
(tcp mode only)
