    Default Running OpenVPN as a service with Local Username/Password Authentication Turned on

    Hello,

    I can't seem to find the answer to this... I have used OpenVPN as a service many times, but not with authentication turned on. I've tried turning on authentication with the local directory and it works when running it from the GUI shortcut.
    Am I missing the place to store the authentication for the service or is this not an option?
    I use the service option as it makes it easier for the users to not have to remember how to connect but would like to add additional security.

    Thanks in advanced.

    Not supported but modify the .ovpn file with auth-user-pass credentials-file.txt line. Then create a text file with the username and password.

    Kinda of defeats the purpose of two-factor authentication.
