Help!. Problem connecting to an Openvpn through proxy server.
Hello everyone..

I have a problem trying to connect to an openvpn server through a proxy server. I've tested connecting with a direct internet connection and its working fine. But when I'm connecting through the proxy server.. I gives me an error message as follow:

recv_line: TCP Port read timeout expired
TCP/UDP: Closing socket
SIGTERM[soft,init_instance] receive, process exiting

Please help me to troubleshoot.. Thanks a lot..

I'm taking a stab here, because I'm not sure exactly how you're configured, but whether you're using a peer to peer setup or a client-server setup, you should add the "float" option to the ovpn (config) file for each peer, client, or server. Normally, the port that openvpn uses is 1194, so each peer or server is expecting that port from each connection - the "float" option tells the peer / server to accept incoming connections from any port (as long as the other security requirements have been met)
