Connect to the VPN

Connecting to the DuploCloud VPN with the OpenVPN client
DuploCloud integrates natively with OpenVPN by provisioning VPN users added to the Duplocloud portal. As a DuploCloud user, you can access resources in the private network by connecting to the VPN with the OpenVPN client.
The OpenVPN Access Server is set to forward only traffic destined for network resources in the DuploCloud-managed private networks. Traffic accessing other resources on the internet does not pass through the tunnel.
