I work for a small company that has an off-site Windows 2012 server which hosts two other virtual servers via VirtualBox; one of these is an Ubuntu 12.04 server which runs OpenVPN. The set-up was configured before I joined the company, and the previous tech guy has since left.
I got news this morning that users cannot connect to our VPN. I confirmed from my own PC that connection to the VPN was being refused (AUTH_FAILED - it is configured to authenticate against active directory on the Win2012 server and I triple-checked my credentials are correct).
I suspected the failure may have been due to the recent Heartbleed bug and that any updated OpenVPN clients might require the host be updated too, so I logged into the Ubuntu server and issued "sudo apt-get update" and "sudo apt-get upgrade" - OpenVPN was one of the packages to get updated.
I issued a "sudo reboot" on the Ubuntu server and tried to connect via OpenVPN again but it still fails (AUTH_FAILED).
I then suspected that because the server and clients had been updated that I might need to issue everyone new certificates (though I hope this won't be necessary!), so I tried to administer OpenVPN users & certificates via webmin... however, opening the webmin web-interface also failed (connection timed out on "https :// (ubuntu-server-ip) :10000"). I have issued a "sudo service webmin restart" and it reports "Stopping Webmin server in /usr/share/webmin", "Starting Webmin server in /usr/share/webmin", "Pre-loaded WebminCore"; but further attempts to connect from the the Win2012 host PC still time out (I have also temporarily disabled the firewall and tried different browsers, but the results are the same)
Both of these services were working fine when I last tried a few weeks ago, and no-one has made any manual changes to the server settings in the intervening time.
Any ideas what might have caused these issues, and what I can do to fix them?
