How to Fix OpenVPN Socket Bind Failure
I recently came up with this error on one of my OpenVPN servers.
"OpenVPN - Socket bind failed on local address [AF_INET] IP:#portnum: Cannot assign requested address"
Let me share how I did fix it.
First off, check this openvpn’s default init script : [email protected]
1sudo grep After /usr/lib/systemd/system/openvpn\@.service
It will look like this:
Well, change it like this:
Reboot the server, if the connection is still not working after rebooting, change the selinux configuration.
1cd /etc/selinux/ 2# youmayknowwhattodo
Reboot again, then it should be working.
Enjoy networking! 🙂
