    Default OpenVPN to dual WAN

    I have a Untangle appliance that we added a second Wan connection. The OpenVPN clients connect fine to the original Wan connection, but if I edit the client's ovpn file to the IP of the second Wan, the connection times out. Any suggestions how I get the second Wan to accept OpenVPN Connections? Since we have a large number of remote workers right now, and every ovpn was initially set up with the public Ip address, I'm going to have to edit all the files manually and want to move them over slowly rather than try to get them all done in one night.

    If a second WAN is added, you will need to remove OpenVPN app from UT and reinstall it. The daemon is not listening on the second WAN.

    Depends on how is this second wan is setup, AFAIK Untangle openvpn server listens on all interfaces. Can you post more details?

    That's why, even with public ip, setting up a domain name is a really good idea. It could also help you to do load balancing on both IPs.

    Wow, that's new to me. I used openvpn with 2 wans for nearly 10 years and never noticed that.
