    Question OpenVPN Local User Passwords

    Good morning here in Michigan.

    I am new to Untangle (and loving it thus far!). However, when attempting to create a user for OpenVPN, I do not seem to have an option to set a password for the user. I apologize in advance if this was already asked, as I did not find anything while searching.


    When I add the user from within the OpenVPN app, here is what I am presented with:
    User-No-Pass.PNG
    User-Edit-Screen.PNG

    I have also browsed to the 'Users' tab, and do not see an option to set a password there, either...
    User-Created.PNG

    If I am missing something, please let me know!

    - Enable username and password authentication on OpenVPN.
    - Click on Configure Local Directory to add users.
    - Client name on OpenVPN must match the user name in local directory.

    Username/Password Authentication can be enabled to activate two factor authentication, requiring clients to also provide a username and password when connecting.

    Authentication Method is used to select the authentication method for clients when Username/Password authentication is enabled.

    Except the critical detail of Untangle connecting the directory's users, to the names on the OpenVPN clients.

    Thanks for the updates! I was able to locate the information I was looking for, and the VPN connection is now up and running!
