HOWTO Commands

Get live, detailed, low-level VPN status information from the
OpenVPN daemons (JSON format):

./sacli VPNStatus

Show the number of users currently connected to the VPN:

./sacli VPNSummary

Show the status of internal Access Server services:

./sacli status

Stop internal Access Server services:

./sacli stop

Start/restart internal Access Server services:

./sacli start

The 'start' command is smart in the sense that if the Access Server
is already running, and you modified the configuration via
the Config DB, only those services whose parameters are changed
will be restarted. Note that if you modify any parameters in
the Access Server bootstrap configuration file
(/usr/local/openvpn_as/etc/as.conf), you will need to do a full unix
restart in order for those settings to take effect.

Also note that the start/stop commands above don't actually start or
stop the Access Server daemon itself, only internal services
within the daemon. To start/stop the access server daemon itself,
use the traditional unix syntax:

Start the Access Server daemon:

/etc/init.d/openvpnas start

Stop the Access Server daemon:

/etc/init.d/openvpnas stop

Restart the Access Server daemon:

/etc/init.d/openvpnas restart
