Description

When you boot Fedora, boot error message shows up:

OpenVPN - failed to start

History

#1 Updated by gboudreau about 11 years ago

This is due to the fact that there are two .conf files in /etc/openvpn, and both try to use the same UDP port, so when the init.d/openvpn script runs with start, it tries to run two instances on openvpn using the same listening port, and the second instance will complain that it can't start because it's listening port is already in use.

Not sure which one should be on port 1194..? The -dup one maybe..?
We just need to change the other conf file to use port 1195 or something, and that will fix this.
