       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.
