Overview

This module installs, configures and manages the OpenVPN service.

Module Description

This module handles installing, configuring and running OpenVPN across a range of operating systems and distributions.

Setup

What openvpn affects

  • openvpn package.
  • openvpn configuration file.
  • openvpn service.

Setup Requirements

Beginning with openvpn

Install openvpn with the default parameters (No configuration files will be changed).

    class { 'openvpn': }

Install openvpn with the recommended parameters.

    class { 'openvpn':
      config_file_template => 'openvpn/common/etc/openvpn/openvpn.conf.erb',
      config_file_hash     => {
        'openvpn' => {
          config_file_path     => '/etc/default/openvpn',
          config_file_template => 'openvpn/common/etc/default/openvpn.erb',
        },
      },
      key_country          => 'DE',
      key_province         => 'NRW',
      key_city             => 'Muenster',
      server_subnet        => '192.168.57.0 255.255.255.0',
    }

Usage

Update the openvpn package.

    class { 'openvpn':
      package_ensure => 'latest',
    }

Remove the openvpn package.

    class { 'openvpn':
      package_ensure => 'absent',
    }

Purge the openvpn package (All configuration files will be removed).

    class { 'openvpn':
      package_ensure => 'purged',
    }

Deploy the configuration files from source directory.

    class { 'openvpn':
      config_dir_source => 'puppet:///modules/openvpn/common/etc/openvpn',
    }

Deploy the configuration files from source directory (Unmanaged configuration files will be removed).

    class { 'openvpn':
      config_dir_purge  => true,
      config_dir_source => 'puppet:///modules/openvpn/common/etc/openvpn',
    }

Deploy the configuration file from source.

    class { 'openvpn':
      config_file_source => 'puppet:///modules/openvpn/common/etc/openvpn/openvpn.conf',
    }

Deploy the configuration file from string.

    class { 'openvpn':
      config_file_string => '# THIS FILE IS MANAGED BY PUPPET',
    }

Deploy the configuration file from template.

    class { 'openvpn':
      config_file_template => 'openvpn/common/etc/openvpn/openvpn.conf.erb',
    }

Deploy the configuration file from custom template (Additional parameters can be defined).

    class { 'openvpn':
      config_file_template     => 'openvpn/common/etc/openvpn/openvpn.conf.erb',
      config_file_options_hash => {
        'key' => 'value',
      },
    }

Deploy additional configuration files from source, string or template.

    class { 'openvpn':
      config_file_hash => {
        'openvpn.2nd.conf' => {
          config_file_path   => '/etc/openvpn/openvpn.2nd.conf',
          config_file_source => 'puppet:///modules/openvpn/common/etc/openvpn/openvpn.2nd.conf',
        },
        'openvpn.3rd.conf' => {
          config_file_path   => '/etc/openvpn/openvpn.3rd.conf',
          config_file_string => '# THIS FILE IS MANAGED BY PUPPET',
        },
        'openvpn.4th.conf' => {
          config_file_path     => '/etc/openvpn/openvpn.4th.conf',
          config_file_template => 'openvpn/common/etc/openvpn/openvpn.4th.conf.erb',
        },
      },
    }

Disable the openvpn service.

    class { 'openvpn':
      service_ensure => 'stopped',
    }
