Setup OpenVPN Server on Proxmox LXC

I needed to do this, but all the tutorials that I could find are incomplete, or already outdated, such as this.

After hacking around for a while, here’s how to correctly setup OpenVPN server in a container on Proxmox:

(btw if you just need to setup an OpenVPN Server in a normal server / non-container, then just do the “in container” part below)

IN HOST

# create special device "tun" for OpenVPN
mkdir -p /devcontainer/net
mknod /devcontainer/net/tun c 10 200
chown 100000:100000 /devcontainer/net/tun

# enable your container to use that tun device
# change 124 into your container's number : pct list
echo "lxc.mount.entry: /devcontainer/net dev/net none bind,create=dir" >> /etc/pve/lxc/124.conf

# forward OpenVPN traffic to your container's IP address
# change 10.10.60.6 to your container's IP address
iptables -t nat -A PREROUTING -i vmbr0 -p tcp -m tcp --dport 1194 -j DNAT --to-destination 10.10.60.6:1194

iptables -t nat -A PREROUTING -i vmbr0 -p udp -m udp --dport 1194 -j DNAT --to-destination 10.10.60.6:1194

iptables -t nat -A PREROUTING -i vmbr1 -p tcp -m tcp --dport 53 -j DNAT --to-destination 10.10.60.6:53

# save iptables's rule
iptables-save > /etc/iptables.rules

IN CONTAINER

# execute the automated OpenVPN installation script 
mkdir /root/scripts
cd /root/scripts

wget git.io/vpn --no-check-certificate -O openvpn-install.sh ; chmod +x openvpn-install.sh ; ./openvpn-install.sh
 
# if you'd like to change the default 10.8.0.xxx IP address, do this :
# vi openvpn-install.sh
# :%s/10.8.0/10.88.0/g

# setup NAT, so the OpenVPN clients can connect to the internet 
# while connected to this OpenVPN server
iptables -I POSTROUTING -t nat -s 10.88.0.0/24 -j MASQUERADE

# save iptables's rule
iptables-save > /etc/iptables.rules

After executing the /root/scripts/openvpn-install.sh script , it will result in a file with ovpn extension

Download that to your computer / client,
install OpenVPN client,
and use that ovpn file as the configuration

Enjoy !
