Applications / Re: OS/4 (technical details only)

Hi, I have problems with NTFS Plugin of NetDrive and the OS4 Kernel. With the normal ArcaOS kernel 14.201 I have no problems to mount and access an NTFS formatted volume. With my OS4 kernel os2krnlSVN5661 my system freezes immediately after the mount command: 'nd mount ntfs g:\ ;path=/dev/hdb1 w'. I have also tried other os4 kernels.

regards Bernhard.

Hi Paul,

excuse the delay.

Hi Bernhard,

Thanks for sharing - are you also able to test with

I'll try bump our port to a currently supported one, however, from 2.3.x onwards, ipv6 support is included and will need to be worked around in the code.



Your new openvpn executable version 2.2 worked like a charm with all my vpn connections. As i said, on severside I use linux machines or pfSense firewalls. In former times I have used ipcop / ipfire as openvn servers and they worked too with os/2 or arcaos.

best regards

I am reading this forum already some time. Now it's time to participate actively. I am using openvpn to support my clients.

OpenVPN is very easy. Place DEVICE=E:\IBMCOM\MACS\OpenVPN.SYS in config.sys and make an entry in protocol.ini:

  DriverName = OVPNET$
  NETADDRESS = "004030123456"

Create a config file for openvpn (lan0=lan, lan1=wlan, lan2=openvpn), for example:

dev tap
dev-type tap
dev-node lan2
proto udp
cipher AES-128-CBC
auth SHA1
remote aaa.bbb.ccc.ddd 1194
resolv-retry infinite
pkcs12 <p12file>.p12
tls-auth <tlskey>.key 1
script-security 3
verb 3

As Server you can use  a linux machine, or ipcop, ipfire, pfsense firewall (the example above is for an pfsense firewall). In the case of pfsense the firewall creates the client config file, the p12 file and the tls key file. Start openvpn with:

openvpn --cd <config-dir> --config <config file>

{0}[e:\sys\apps\openvpn] ovpn_argon.cmd
openvpn --cd .\config --config argon.ovpn

That's it. Easy and Robust and with openvpn you need only one port for comunication. You can use tcp or udp.
