Unhappy OpenVPN - Cannot resolve host address: (Windows 10 Client to SLES 12 Linux)


Help!

Struggling to connect my openvpn. Here's my Windows 10 client config:

client
dev tap
proto udp
remote ip 10.0.0.186:1194
resolv-retry infinite
nobind
persist-key
persist-tun
pkcs12 client2.p12
auth-user-pass
comp-lzo

I'm getting the following errors:

Fri Jul 14 13:09:11 2017 WARNING: No server certificate verification method has been enabled. See http://openvpn.net/howto.html#mitm for more info.
Fri Jul 14 13:09:11 2017 RESOLVE: Cannot resolve host address: ip:10.0.0.186:1194 (The specified class was not found. )
Fri Jul 14 13:09:11 2017 RESOLVE: Cannot resolve host address: ip:10.0.0.186:1194 (The specified class was not found. )
Fri Jul 14 13:09:11 2017 SIGUSR1[soft,init_instance] received, process restarting
Fri Jul 14 13:09:12 2017 SIGTERM[hard,init_instance] received, process exiting

When I'm on my home network with the server - I can ping the 10.0.0.186 address. Don't neccesarily know how to test the port.

What do I need to look at next??? Is there any easy fix out there?

Hi dude95,

Although I've never used openvpn to connect to another computer on my own network, my first suggestion would be to check the openvpn configuration on the server (your SUSE 12 box) and make sure it is coherent with your client config on the Windows box.

Also check if any security software (firewall, etc., .) might be interfering with the connection between the 2 boxes.

Finally - there are some pretty vpn-savvy members here (.. I don't count myself among them, unfortunately ...) that may be able to be of more assistance. My advice would be to more fully describe the context behind your setup, your objective, etc. ...

Cheers,
