Environment


Novell Access Management 3 SSLVPN Server

Situation

Access Manager 3 Support Pack 2 applied to an SSLVPN server to get the new proxy support. The proxy.conf file was created and placed in the users home directory, as defined by the documentation. As the users tried to connect in Enterprise mode, no green connection light would ever appear. Looking at the openvpn.log file on the client, the following error was reported:

> Options error: Bad http-proxy port number: <8080>
> Use --help for more information.


Resolution

Corrected the syntax of the proxy.conf file. The erroneous setup had the following entry:

proxyHost=<172.19.236.250>:<8080>

Once changed to

proxyHost=172.19.236.250:8080

all started working fine.
