Hi there.
I have openvpn running on a windows 2003 server.
client and server connection are working good.

I'm wondering now if it is possible to add extra security to the vpn connection.
Like it is now the client can just connect and he/she is connected to my server.
would it be possible to force the vpn connection to be authenticated against active directory before he/she gains access to the network?

Thanks

thor918,

openvpn is open source code.....if you want to search for AD plugins then you should try contacting people who use this heavily and potentialy some of the original coders

I browsed trough the openvpn mailinglist, and found tips there. :D
in fact openvpn has a scripting feature that allows one to script there own authentification method.  good stuff.
