OpenVPN

Accessing MyForce Servers

  • Connect to servers based on their IP-address
  • Connect to servers using FQDN:
    • You should try both since currently we are in the middle of a domain move
    • servername.internal.myforce.be

Test connection

  • In order to be sure you are connected or the issue can be found when things fail =>  
    • Make sure that when things fail, you first redo everything when OpenVPN runs as admin!! This is important since the client needs to be able to adapt the route table!!
    • Do the following tests, if something isn't working still do ALL steps
      • Ping wilma.internal.myforce.be
    • Provide following network info in case of issues to it@myforce.be
      • Open a command prompt KeyCombo => Windows + R
      • type cmd.exe and hit enter
      • type the following command and hit enter between them
        • ipconfig /all > C:\ipconfig.txt
        • route print > C:\routes.txt
      • Send both files to it@myforce.be

Connecting

On our internal network you can find some files required for connecting with openVPN from an external location to the MyForce network. The files are stored in folder on our internal network, so don't forget to take them with you! In each folder you will find the following files (use the one(s) appropriate for you):

  • \\greatgazoo\DomainData\username\VPN

    • XXXX-install.exe (32 bit installer)
