OpenVPN Rock-on: Server configuration?

Because i couldn’t find any admin web interface or server configuration.

OpenVPN provides no admin interface, as it does not require one. Once the keys etc are configured, when you connect you have access to everything on your local net.

Hi @Haioken,

thank you very much. Your explanation helped me a lot to understand.

It is exactly as you said and i can reach the RockstorUI, router ui, …

Thanks again
