Azure VPN - AD Authentication & Azure Certificate

Yulian Rodriguez 0 Reputation points

Hi Guys,

I'm running an Azure VPN with AAD Authentication for Win & Mac users.

I have an Ubuntu Desktop user who needs to connect to this VPN so he can access several servers via RDP, so i was wondering if i can have this VPN doing both AAD & Azure Certificate authentication.

Is it possible to have this VPN working for Win/Mac users as well as Linux?

I'll appreciate any info on this issue.

    Yes, this is a supported scenario.

    This exact requirement is documented here :

    For certificate based authentication, you will be required to use "IKEv2 and OpenVPN (SSL)" as the Tunnel type

    To configure certificate based auth:
