OpenVPN Configuration

  • Before we start, please be sure to have a functional VPN

    Note: Please be sure to have a TrustelemConnect app correctly configured

  • Install the openvpn-auth-ldap package on the vpn machine by running the apt install openvpn-auth-ldap command

  • Copy the file that was created /usr/share/doc/openvpn-auth-ldap/examples/auth-ldap.conf this way /etc/openvpn/auth/ldap.conf

  • Setup a custom LDAP service account as well as a custom LDAP password on the trustelem app settings (optional)

  • Copy the field’s content below into the ldap.conf file you just copied and change the Bind DN line with the required information
