OpenVPN 3 Linux client
|Manual group:||OpenVPN 3 Linux|
openvpn3-service-configmgr is a backend service for OpenVPN 3 Linux,
responsible for managing OpenVPN configuration profiles. Once a configuration
profile has been imported, either via
openvpn3 session-start or
openvpn2(1), it will run in the background as a
D-Bus service as long as it has at least one configuration profile in memory.
The VPN backend process (
openvpn3-service-client) will retrieve the contents
of the VPN configuration profile from the configuration manager when
initializing and preparing to connect.
Only one configuration manager process can run on the system.
Configuration profiles are managed via the
openvpn3 config-manage and
openvpn3 config-acl commands and new VPN sessions are started using
openvpn3 session-start command.
This service is normally started automatically when needed, via the
net.openvpn.v3.configmgr.service auto-start configuration by the
dbus-daemon, but can also be started manually on the command line. This
process should run as the openvpn user and will automatically switch to this
user account if it has the needed privileges to do so. Beware that changing
this to another user account also requires updating the D-Bus policy as well.
