given a score based on how well
the author has formatted their
code and documentation and
modules are also checked for

OpenVPN

Puppet Forge Build Status

A Puppet module to manage the OpenVPN client and server.

Supported Platforms

  • CentOS
  • Debian
  • FreeBSD
  • OpenBSD
  • Ubuntu

Usage

Server Setup

The configuration for the OpenVPN server can be accomplished using the openvpn::server class.

class { "openvpn::server":
  server => "10.0.0.0 255.255.255.0",
  route  => [
    "10.0.1.0 255.255.255.0",
    "10.0.2.0 255.255.255.0",
    "10.0.3.0 255.255.255.0",
    ],
  dns => '10.0.0.10',
  crl => 'mysite/crl.pem',
}

To include pushing IPv6 routes, the route_ipv6 and the server_ipv6 parameters have been added to the openvpn::server class.

class { "openvpn::server":
  server_ipv6 => "10.0.0.0 255.255.255.0",
  route_ipv6  => [
    "fc00::/64",
    ],
  dns => 'fc00::',
  crl => 'mysite/crl.pem',
}

Basic Client Setup

Clients can be configured using the openvpn::client defined type. Multiple connections can be specified if you have multiple locations to connect to.

openvpn::client { "node_${hostname}_dc1":
  server => "vpn.dc1.example.com",
  cert   => "node_${hostname}";
}

openvpn::client { "node_${hostname}_office":
  server => "vpn.office.example.com",
  cert   => "node_${hostname}";
}

Client Specific Configurations

Clients can have a more specific and static configuration. For example, if you wanted to specify the IP address a specific client should use, something like the following will work for this purpose.

openvpn::server::csc { "srv1.example.com":
  content => "ifconfig-push 10.0.0.50 10.0.0.51",
}
