I'm setting up the OpenVPN server on my router. Following the guide here: https://openwrt.org/docs/guide-user/services/vpn/openvpn/server.setup
The process seems simple. I managed to get the server set up & am able to connect to the server through some other network. Looks great here.
However, when I find more devices to connect to the server, it turns out the connection is not stable. Due to my experience to setup the OpenVPN server in Ubuntu, I guess it could be they are using the same ovpn file and thus the common name is exactly the same. By enable the simultaneous connection with same CN, a option named "duplicate-cn" should be configured in server configuration.
But the issue comes that I can't manage to find how to enable that in Lede OpenVPN. At least tried two ways below but not working:
- Add line "option duplicate-cn '1'" to "vpnserver" section of /etc/config/openvpn and reboot
The VPN server can still work but seems the option is not working.
- execute command "uci set openvpn.vpnserver.duplicate-cn='1'" on CLI
Just get "uci: Parse error"
What could be the correct way to enable that in Lede OpenVPN? For the potential risk by using "duplicate-cn", actually I am only using the OpenVPN home to manage some of my home device, thus I'm not concerned about the risk.
