Hypernode-vpn offers a secure way of directly connecting to your database from any location. Using OpenVPN.

How it works

Our Hypernode-vpn solution implements a standard OpenVPN TLS tunnel to the Hypernode. Which can be used to talk to the MySQL database securely. You simply enable OpenVPN on your Hypernode and all the required packages and configuration are installed automatically. The automation will generate a default user configuration which you can use to connect to the Hypernode.

Using OpenVPN

To be able to connect to your Hypernode you will need to install the latest version of the OpenVPN client.

Enable / Disable

This can simply be done on the Hypernode itself.

This command will trigger the Hypernode automation to start installing OpenVPN and generate the configuration. Or delete all the configuration when disabling.

After the installation is complete the client configuration can be found in: /data/openvpn/client-configs

Client configuration

When you have downloaded your client configuration use it to connect to your Hypernode.

Using OpenVPN

Once connected the standard configuration will make a new tunnel interface on your local device. The subnet will be used for VPN communication. So when talking to the Hypernode by default use as the IP address.
