    v1 v2  
    1 = OpenVPN systemd use
    2 
    3 This is only a ''brief'' summary of OpenVPN systemd usage.
    4 
    5  OpenVPN **must** be compiled with systemd support.[[br]]
    6 
    7  Use the correct OpenVPN supported systemd `.service` files.
    8 
    9 === Build OpenVPN with systemd support
    10 
    11 When you build the openvpn binary use the configure option `--enable-systemd` like so:
    12 
    13 {{{
    14 ./configure --enable-systemd
    15 }}}
    16 
    17 Verify OpenVPN systemd support has been enabled like so:
    18 
    19 {{{
    20 $ openvpn --version
    21 }}}
    22   Look for `enable-systemd=yes` in the output.
    23 
    24 === Using OpenVPN with systemd support
    25 
    26 In order to use OpenVPN with systemd please use the correct systemd `.service` file.
    27 
    28 **Server**:
    29 
    30   * Place your server configuration file in `/etc/openvpn/server`
    31   * Use the `openvpn-server@.service` like so:
    32 {{{
    33 $ sudo systemctl start openvpn-server@{Server-config}
    34 }}}
    35   Replace `{Server-config}` with the `name` of your config file without the `.conf`
    36 **Client**:
    37 
    38   * Place your client configuration file in `/etc/openvpn/client`
    39   * Use the `openvpn-client@.service` like so:
    40 {{{
    41 $ sudo systemctl start openvpn-client@{Client-config}
    42 }}}
    43   Replace `{Client-config}` with the `name` of your config file without the `.conf`
    44 
    45 **Start at boot**:
    46  
    47   Replace `start` with `enable`
    48 
    49 Other systemd questions are probably best answered by reading `man systemd`
    50 
    51 **Note**:
    52 
    53   * `openvpn@.service` is **deprecated**.
    54   * `openvpn.service` is **obsoleted**. (This is only used for backward compatibility)
