Openvpn connection is not connected

Linode Staff


I have successfully installed OpenVpn and connected with a VPN client, but if I disconnect from the client I cannot reconnect to the VPN. I have to restart my Linode in order for the VPN client to reconnect to the VPN.

I suggest reviewing the following guide in regards to troubleshooting connectivity issues with Openvpn.

You can view the logs to look for errors by using the following command.

sudo less /var/log/openvpnas.log
