VPN Active

Awesome.  I can VPN to my home network now.

My work’s corporate network does not allow out-of-spec SSL traffic…so that was the majority of my problem.  Just goes to show that consistent troubleshooting processess are required to make things work. 

I had tested other networks in the past, but it didn’t work because I didn’t have my server certificate file created properly.  So, after I realized that I needed to redo my certificate, I hadn’t checked any network other than the corporate.  Which uses Websense.  Which sits on top of ISA 2004.  Neither of which really likes SSL over the normal port 443, let alone unrecognizeable traffic over port 1194 (which is the OpenVPN default).  Just shows to go ya.


I’m going to be moving my blog to a different server.  We’ll see how this works out.
