Current configuration works, new configuration does not
« on: January 02, 2018, 03:36:38 pm »
The site I manage has a new Internet connection that required me to create a new configuration in pfSense.  Before I did so, I exported the old configuration as back-up (this ain't my first rodeo).  I have lots of remote workers who all use Tunnelblick to connect.  In the old configuration these users were all able to connect without issue.  Once I created the new configuration, locally I could connect without issue, but when I exported the new config files via the client export, I am not longer able to successfully connect via VPN.  Does the client export not take into account the new configuration?  If not, what should my next steps be when I import the new configuration?

Thank you to any and all who can offer me any assistance.

What do you mean by "Not Connect"?
Does the OpenVPN connection work and your routing fail?
Have you checked your logs; and what do you see?

I'm sorry, I didn't see that you had replied.  What I mean by "not connect" is that when I click connect, it just says, "Waiting for server response" and then counts up infinitely.  Where can I check the logs?

By the way, if I restore the old configuration, the OpenVPN client exports work without issue.  They appear to not be taking into consideration the new configuration.

What did you change in the new config?
Your certs, port numbers, ip addr/ddns must be the same. - if the old exports still work.
Check log files for OpenVPN, increase verbosity if necessary. What do you see & how does it relate to your changes?
