Tutorial For Setting up OpenVPN Server + Turtle?


Recommended Posts

I can't seem to find the tutorial people seem to be talking about regarding setting up OpenVPN gateway. I'd like to use one of my Droplets as an OpenVPN server.

I've never setup up OpenVPN before so if someone could point me in the right direction it would be much appreciated!

So I found the video, but I am having a little bit of trouble.

First of all, on digital ocean I kept getting connection refused when trying to access the OpenVPN AS web interface. I banged my head against the wall for a while until I tried assigning a floating IP to it and accessing it thru that, and it worked instantly. I would really like to understand WHY that is. I can SSH into it no problems, can someone explain why the floating ip was required to connect to openvpn web interface?

My next issue is that the connecitons just appear to timeout when i try to connect, either thru my laptop or the turtle. I configured everything exactly like in the video (with the exception of the correct IP addresses and network info) and its a no-go.

Any ideas?

Hi wintermute,

Which video did you watch? There are a couple that Darren's posted, but the following has some extra config for forwarding (which sounds like it might be your problem):


Also see this thread:

I can't comment on the floating IP, but have you made sure the "Listen on all interfaces" option is selected under the Server Network Configuration tab on OpenVPN? This is likely related to your timeouts, too.
