Then it looks like the service is not actually running. Can you try with the command I provided?

Have you enabled or started required services?

Run "netstat -lnp | grep \:1194" to see if the app is running and listening.

Hi, I'm trying to set up OpenVPN Access Server on a HOST-32L Dedicated server.

I downloaded the package from the openvpn website, ran dpkg -i , package seems to install just fine, but when trying to connect to the webGUI provided by the OpenVPN package, connection is refused.

both tcp/943 and udp/1194 rules were added to the UFW firewall AND iptables... but nothing seems to have worked. the server is running the OVH GRSec kernel if that matters?

I can confirm that the openvpn process is running.
I've tried restarting the server just to try, but still no success.
