Action needed: Important update for OpenVPN Access Server

Does license activation require Internet access?

FAQ

Yes, our activation system relies on being able to contact licensing.openvpn.net at port TCP 443 in order to complete activation. However if your system is installed somewhere where Internet access is not possible or not allowed, then it is possible to do an offline activation. This can be done by us when you contact us and request an offline activation and provide us with the necessary hardware activation file, or you can do it yourself using a second Access Server installation that does have access to the Internet, and which can be provided with the necessary hardware activation file, after which the resulting activated key file can be stored on the file system of the Access Server. We intend to provide a guide on how to do this here on the website (UNFINISHED MARKER)
