an ip is there any way to capture the connecting pc's hostname?

The OpenVPN server will save the client's IP address, port, and certificate common name as environmental variables for the --up script or --client-connect script to use.

I wondering how to extract the value of the variables from the up script.
I would like to extract the value from the client's certificate.
Is there any example?

make a script that uses

export  >>  $(tempfile)

and tell openvpn to run it.


I created a script called get-vars.sh with the following content:
export >> $(tempfile)
but I got the following error when I tried to execute the openvnp server:

Jul 17 15:48:57 fbsd openvpn[29719]: get-vars.sh tap0 1500 1590 init
Jul 17 15:48:57 fbsd openvpn[29719]: script failed: could not execute shell command
Jul 17 15:48:57 fbsd openvpn[29719]: Exiting

Here is the permission of the get-vars.sh file:
# ls -l get-vars.sh
-rw-r-xr--  1 root  wheel  24 Jul 17 15:48 get-vars.sh*

make it executeable for all. Then try to see if it works then include it in openvpn
