  • Using Arista OpenVPN with OPNSense as client

    Hi All,

    I am looking to create a site-to-site VPN using OpenVPN. The firewall running Arista will be the host, this side contains all of the network resources that the OPNSense side needs. Both sides have gigabit WANs and essentially, the OPNSense side is going to be pulling everything from DHCP, file shares, web filtering and DNS through the tunnel from the Arista side.

    I am not familiar with configuring OpenVPN links like this as I've only used IPSec in this scenario but as I understand, OpenVPN is preferred.

    I need to provide OPNSense with a trust certificate for the link, and I'm not sure exactly what to provide here in OPNSense:

    If anyone can help me understand how to provide the certificate that Arista is using in for OpenVPN in the format that OPNSense needs, that would be super helpful!​
