Yeah .... you're having permission problems on the file.
Please note that OpenVPN starts as root, read all the key (CA, server,
etc) as root and then drop privileges to the desired user. In your case,
The CRL file is the only key file that is read again in each
connection. So, it must be readable to the low-privilege user you choose.
The error you're having simply indicates that OpenVPN is not being able
to read the file.
Fix the permissions problem. Check file permissions as well as
When OpenVPN is able to read crl.pem file, you'll get things working
the desired way.
Great - thanks for the information. I moved the crl.pem file out of the
directory (don't want to change permissions on that directory) and now
OpenVPN can read it (I get connected, and the log is saying CRL CHECK OK.
As another one said, I will now setup a cron job so that the file is copied
once a day (that is adequate for this system).
