            Run a VPN client on a remote website
            Asked 2018-Aug-12 at 11:37

            I have been researching this for day and I haven't been able to find the way to do this.

            I am building a react app, running express at the backend, that needs to access some data in a remote database that lives inside a VPN. At the moment the app lives on my localhost so its enough for me to connect my machine using openvpn client and everything works a beauty. The problem will rise when the app will be live and I will need it to have access to the vpn by (I'm guessing) having a vpn client running on the site/domain.

            Has anyone done this before?

            I have tried to install the node-openvpn package that seems could do the job but unfortunately I can't manage to make it work as the connection doesn't seem to be configured properly.

            This is the function I call to connect to the vpn that systematically fails at the line

            --> openvpnmanager.authorize(auth);

            Thats correct, you will need an openvpn client instance on the server where you will run the backend.

            The above library (node-openvpn) is simply a library to interact with the local OpenVPN client instance. It cannot create a connection on its own. It depends on the OpenVPN binary (which should be running).

            The solution you need is simply run the OpenVPN client on your server (apt-get openvpn). And let the daemon run. Check out the references below.
