       eurephia-auth - The eurephia OpenVPN authentication plug-in


       The  is  a  plug-in for OpenVPN.  It is loaded by providing the --plugin
       option in the OpenVPN configuration.

       The syntax for OpenVPN and eurephia-auth is:

              plugin "<plugin args> -- <DB args>"

       Please notice the quotes and the double dash.  They are  important  markers  so  that  the
       eurephia-auth module receives all arguments (the quotes) and that it knows when to pass on
       the rest of the arguments to the defined database driver, separated by  the  double  dash.
       This  manual page will only look at the <plugin args> options.  For the <DB args> options,
       refer to the corresponding database driver you are using.


       --log-destination | -l
              This defines how eurephia will do its logging. It can take a filename to log  to  a
              file.  If  the  string is openvpn: it will pass the log data over to OpenVPN, which
              will combine the OpenVPN and eurephia  logs.  You  can  also  log  via  syslog,  by
              indicating  syslog:.  The  last  possible special value is none: which will disable
              logging completely.

              With syslog: you can also define which syslog facility the logging will go to.  The
              default  is  to  log to the user facility. Other supported facilities are authpriv,
              daemon and local0 to local7. To send log data to the daemon  the  --log-destination
              argument need to be

                  --log-destination syslog:daemon

       --log-level | -L
              This  defines  how  verbose  the eurephia logging will be. The required argument to
              this option must be a numeric  value,  where  0  indicates  as  little  logging  as
              possible - only giving informative messages, or a high value like 50 to give really
              verbose logging. In general a log level less than 4  should  be  more  than  enough
              under normal circumstances.

              NOTICE:  The  highest  log  level is 10, unless the eurephia-auth modules have been
              compiled with debug features.

       --database-interface | -i
              This argument must have a full path to the eurephia database  driver  module.  This
              defines which database interface eurephia will use.


       The only change the OpenVPN clients needs to do is to add


       to  their  configuration file.  This instructs the OpenVPN client to ask for user name and
       password when starting the connection.
