reset openvpn interface <vtunx> client <client-name>

Resets a client connection.

reset openvpn interface vtunx client client-name
vtunx
The identifier for the OpenVPN interface. This may be vtun0 to vtunx, where x is a non-negative integer.
client-name
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). This can be determined using the show openvpn server status command.

Operational mode

Use this command to reset the connection to a specific client. The connection to the client will be disconnected and the server will wait for the client to re-establish the connection.

Note: The OpenVPN process does not get restarted by this command.
