Noone else was facing this, did I really miss the solution?
Running a (holiday) router to connect to the home network with OpenVPN set up
- as a server at home
- as a client on the holiday router
But starting the service openvpn with ovpn config file on OpenWRT doesnt let me set the client key password?
Please let me know what I am missing, I could not find it in the openwrt openvpn docs (https://openwrt.org/docs/guide-user/services/vpn/openvpn/client) nor on the search engines. using "askpass" in /etc/openvpn/vpnclient.ovpn does not help anyways.
Or do I need to start the "service" in dialog mode?
Log error is
daemon.err openvpn(vpnclient): neither stdin nor stderr are a tty device and you have neither a controlling tty nor systemd - can't ask for 'Enter Private Key Password:'. If you used --daemon, you need to use --askpass to make passphrase-protected keys work, and you can not use --auth-nocache.
