Configure OpenVPN for Point-to-Site VPN gateways
This article helps you set up OpenVPN® Protocol on Azure VPN Gateway. This article contains both Azure portal and PowerShell instructions.
The article steps assume that you already have a working point-to-site environment. If you don't, you can create one using one of the following methods. When you create your gateway, don't use the Basic SKU. The Basic SKU doesn't support the OpenVPN tunnel type.
If you already have a VPN gateway, verify that it doesn't use the Basic SKU. The Basic SKU isn't supported for OpenVPN. For more information about SKUs, see VPN Gateway configuration settings. To resize a Basic SKU, see Resize a legacy gateway.
In the portal, navigate to your Virtual network gateway -> Point-to-site configuration.
For Tunnel type, select OpenVPN (SSL) from the dropdown.
Save your changes and continue with Next steps.
Enable OpenVPN on your gateway using the following example, adjusting the values as necessary.
$gw = Get-AzVirtualNetworkGateway -ResourceGroupName TestRG1 -name VNet1GW Set-AzVirtualNetworkGateway -VirtualNetworkGateway $gw -VpnClientProtocol OpenVPN
