Hello i’m setting up a virtualmin server, i wanted to also host on the same mahcine an openvpn server to connect to it.
The problem i’m facing is that it seems that i can’t get OpenVPN server working together with Virtualmin. if i install OpenVPN server it works just fine (i do that with GitHub - angristan/openvpn-install: Set up your own OpenVPN server on Debian, Ubuntu, Fedora, CentOS or Arch Linux.) the server boots and i can connect just fine from my computer.
But as soon as i install Virtualmin on the machine, i’m no longer able to connect to the VPN server, just as if the OpenVPN port was closed. i tried both listing the udp 1194 (that i’m using) port in firewallD public zone in Webmin interface, stopping firewalld from the interface, and added an iptables rule via ssh with
sudo iptables -A INPUT -p tcp -m tcp --dport 1194 -j ACCEPT, none of that works, i can see the OpenVPN still listening on the right port with netstat, and the iptables rule is there, but the port is still inaccessible.
What is Virtualmin doing that’s preventing me from connecting to the OpenVPN server?
