I'm trying to get a working setup of OpenVPN on my VM and authenticate into it from a client.
I'm not sure but it looks to me like it's socket related, as it's not set to LISTEN, and localhost seems wrong. I've never set up VPN before.
# netstat -tulpn | grep vpn Proto Recv-Q Send-Q Local Address Foreign Address State PID/Program name udp 0 0 127.0.0.1:1194 0.0.0.0:* 24059/openvpn
I don't think this is set up correctly.
Here's some detail into what I've done. I have a VPS from MediaTemple:
These are my interfaces before starting openvpn:

I've followed this guide on setting up a basic server and getting a .p12 file, however, I was receiving an error that stated
/dev/net/tun was missing, so I created it
mkdir -p /dev/net mknod /dev/net/tun c 10 200 chmod 600 /dev/net/tun
This resolved the error preventing the service from launching, however, I am unable to connect.
On the server I've set up the myserver.conf file (as per the tutorial) to indicate
local 127.0.0.1 (I've also attempted with the public IP address, perhaps I don't understand what they mean by local IP?). The server launches without error, this is what the log looks like when it starts:

This creates a tun0 interface that looks like this:
tun0 Link encap:UNSPEC HWaddr 00-00-00-00-00-00-00-00-00-00-00-00-00-00-00-00 inet addr:10.8.0.1 P-t-P:10.8.0.2 Mask:255.255.255.255 UP POINTOPOINT RUNNING NOARP MULTICAST MTU:1500 Metric:1 RX packets:0 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 frame:0 TX packets:0 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 carrier:0 collisions:0 txqueuelen:100 RX bytes:0 (0.0 B) TX bytes:0 (0.0 B)
And the netstat command still indicates the state is not set to
On the client-side I've installed the p12 certs onto two devices (one is an android tablet, the other is an Ubuntu desktop). I don't see port 1194 as open either.
Both clients install the cert files and then ask me for the L2TP secret (which was set on the file), but then they oddly ask me for a username and a password, which I don't know where I could possibly get those from. I attempted all of my logins, and some whacky guesses that were frantically pulling at straws.
If there's any more information I could provide let me know.
