interfaces openvpn <vtunx> server client <client-name>

Defines a client site on the server in a remote access environment.

set interfaces openvpn vtunx server client client-name
delete interfaces openvpn vtunx server client
show interfaces openvpn vtunx server client
vtunx
The identifier for the OpenVPN interface. This may be vtun0 to vtunx, where x is a non-negative integer.
client-name
Mandatory. The “name” of the client. It corresponds to the “common name” contained in the client's certificate. When a client initiates the VPN session, the server uses the name in the certificate to look up and apply client-specific settings (if any).

        server {
            client client-name {

    }
