#1089 new Bug / Defect

Cannot use openvpn with config files under /home

Description

Currently openvpn is installed with the following configuration in its unit file:

ProtectHome?=true

This implies that /home and /root folders are not accessible to openvpn. In my case I have an ecryptfs folder which is mounted under /home/$user/Private and have symlinks to the actual config files from /etc/openvpn/client/. However due to the aforementioned systemd option I was not able to start openvpn until I changed ProtectHome? to 'read-only'.

I don't think having config files under /home can be considered an invalid use case. So please consider changing the option of ProtectHome?.
