Installation is successful but the traffic is not routed trough the server.

The thread doesn't actually have any information at all, more like disinformation.

You can also see that it's working for others, so you could probably consider that this issue could be in your end and not a problem with the script or Scaleway.

Still, I have just created one Scaleway instance to check for you, and it works. I wanted to check on the ARM servers too, but they are likely out of capacity and wouldn't let me get one so I just tested with the Avotons.

It could be that you just didn't set up the NAT correctly.

You need to specify the internal IP address on the first installation step (which is there by default) and then specify the public one when asked later.

Later ? It only asks one time for the IP adress.

So I have to keep it this way ?

First I need to know the IPv4 address of the network interface you want OpenVPN
listening to.
IP address: 10.2.0.215

Try to actually READ what the script is asking you for:

First I need to know the IPv4 address of the network interface you want OpenVPN
listening to
.

Do a ifconfig and check what's the freaking IP address assigned to the network interface (eth0).

If you specify the right IP you are asked for, the script will later detect the NAT and ask you for the public IP and will work perfectly.

I now see you haven't even bothered to read the script at all and look at how it works. I would consider this reasonable except for the fact you are actually maintaining a fork of this script which you apparently don't even understand.

So please, refrain from opening any issue in the future.

I am not familiar with NAT, sorry.

So when I see :

First I need to know the IPv4 address of the network interface you want OpenVPN
listening to.

Why would I put a private IP ??

Now I understand, it explains a lot ^^

The noob apologizes

Because it is the actual IP address assigned to the interface, which is what the script is asking about.

Yep that's right, no public IP on ifconfig ^^

(I'd just like to point out that I wasn't the only one confused with Scaleway) #112

The right IP address is detected by default and user needs to manually break the configuration for it to fail.

Not my problem if people doesn't read what they are asked about.

I have run the script more than once, changing absolutely nothing, using an Ubuntu 17.04 droplet. Now, the IP detected by the script matches the inet section in eth0. Is that the correct configuration?

Running the iptables commands in #92 results in an empty output.

@BrainBlasted you are using an EOL distribution and as such, is not supported. But yes, the instructions in this thread still stand.
