Howto use OpenVPN client on Mikrotik

Wed Oct 08, 2008 5:43 pm

I'm newby with VPN and certificate stuff, but I'm trying to connect Mikrotik 3.14 using OpenVPN-client to connect to a linux server running OpenVPN in server mode.

The linux server has created a MyVPN.ovpn file with a ca-server.crt, a myvpn.crt and a myvpn.key

I imported the two .crt files into MT Certificates, but could not import the .key file

Also, MT just named the certificates cert1, cert2. So I renamed them to ca-server and myvpn to easyer distinguish them. I hope not breaking something with that renaming.

Both certificates that MT imported, have the CA checked, but I think that the myvpn.crt shouldn't have it.

I Tryed to use:

/interface ovpn-client
add name=IPBc certificate=myvpn connect-to=201.49.184.30 user=nobody add-default-route=no

but I guet "failure: no certificate found"

I tryed using the ca-server to the certificate= option, but same error.

I also tryed unchecking CA at the myvpn certificate, but still cant create the ovpn-client interface.

I couldn't find an howto or example to use the ovpn-client, I only found the wiki that guides to use the ovpn-server.

Do I need to start the ovpn-server, eaven if I just whant to use the ovpn-client ?

Thanks,

Alexander
