AWS Client VPN via linux command line?

0

I would like to start a VPN connection from command line. This is possible with OpenVPN. However, the OpenVPN client does not recognize AWS' auth-fed keyword in the .ovpn file. It seems that AWS Client VPN for Linux is only for linux desktop environment.

  • Could you please accept the answer posted below ?

Hello, I believe there is a requirement for the Client VPN for linux as stated in the reference document below, To use the AWS provided client for Linux, the following is required: Ubuntu 18.04 LTS or Ubuntu 20.04 LTS (AMD64 only) Whats new: https://aws.amazon.com/about-aws/whats-new/2021/06/aws-client-vpn-launches-desktop-client-for-linux/ Reference: https://docs.aws.amazon.com/vpn/latest/clientvpn-user/client-vpn-connect-linux.html Let me know if this helps.

  • Sounds like the Ubuntu desktop environment is required for the AWS VPN Client. :(

I believe at this point this stands to be correct about the requirement. However, you can raise an Feature request stating your use-case, if needed. :)
