#534 OpenVPN client-config-dir

Next major version

I have a requirement to push custom routes to specific openvpn clients.

With IPCop 1.4 and Zerina this was easily accomplished with the appropriate file in /var/ipcop/openvpn/ccd

But since upgrading to IPCop 2 (currently running 2.06) this hasnt been as straight forward.

I have got this working by adding
"client-config-dir /var/ipcop/openvpn/ccd"
to /var/ipcop/openvpn/server.conf, but this dissapears if the settings are changed through the web interface.

Not a big issue as the settings a rarely changed if ever, just would be nice not to have to re enter this line if the settings are changed.

    Activate the "Static IP" option under Advanced Server Options.
    Pretty straight forward and much easier.

      I dont think this will do what I want. From what I can see this only gives me the option of a static IP. What I want to do is push an extra route to only certain clients (specifically the route to our voice vlan so I can do remote maintenance when required).

        It does.
        client-config-dir is added to the conf file when selecting "Static IP".

          Your right activating the static ip option does add client-config-dir.

          Works well, just need to keep in mind if I edit the remark or change the IP on a profile any custom routes etc I've added will be wiped.
