AUTH_FAILURE

Post by Farelos » Thu Apr 05, 2018 2:29 pm

I followed instructions on creating a remote access server on my home PC and created a user "pi" in order to access my VPN with my raspberry pi through openvpn. User "pi" has password authentication set. I generated the openvpn file .ovpn and made sure ports 5555TCP, 1194UDP were being forwarded on my router. I transfered the .ovpn file to the pi but when I try connecting to the server with the user "pi" credentials I get an auth_failed statement and the process terminates, any clues to what is causing this?

I used SOFTETHER VPN 4.0 (Ver 4.25, build 9656) to create the server on Windows 10 Pro 64bit

my .ovpn file looks like this:

dev tun
proto udp
remote filthygurlll.v4.softether.net 1194
;http-proxy-retry
;http-proxy [proxy server] [proxy port]
cipher AES-128-CBC
auth SHA1
resolv-retry infinite
nobind
persist-key
persist-tun
client
verb 3
auth-user-pass

on the client side I end up with something like this:

SENT CONTROL [filthygurlll.softether.net]: 'PUSH_REQUEST' (status=1)
SENT CONTROL [filthygurlll.softether.net]: 'PUSH_REQUEST' (status=1)
AUTH: Received control message: AUTH_FAILED
SIGTERM[soft,auth-failure] received, process exiting

I am pretty sure my username and password match since I tried creating a few different ones but I always get the same outcome.

Could you share the log of VPN server?
