    Hi All,

    I've just implemented an OpenVPN server in my company for some road warrior to connect to the company's network. It is working perfectly so far.

    The only problem is that I need to know some informations such as which computer connected and when it connected and disconnected. The authentication on the server is done using certificates.

    Does anyone know how to retrieve this information from OpenVPN?

    Pedro. :)

    Hi everyone,

    Just found out how to do it.

    The "status" config-file option solves this problem. Once a minute it logs information about clients on the file specified by you. It isn't a very well organized file, but will help you to keep track of who's connecting to your server.

    Hope this helps you all.
