Enhanced VPN support
Since VPN connection are more and more common, and mobile devices used to connect to monitor servers, there is a need for an enhancement on the old VPN Add-on on plesk (linux).
Currently the IOS and Android OpenVPN client does not support secret — Static key encryption mode (non-TLS) is not supported.
Which is the only way to use the Plesk VPN connection because it does not support certificates.
There is a lot of literature on troubles with VPN on mobile, but basically, all of them are due to old style, unsecured way to connect to VPN.
Can someone look through this and think about giving the possibility to support certificate ?
If you agree, feel free to vote
Thank you for your input! We will consider this functionality in upcoming releases if it will be popular.
Everyone, please continue voting for this feature if you consider it important.
Wreguard would be great, because there are clients for all platforms. And it's absolutely simple to use.

Good suggestion but instead of OpenVPN maybe a more modern solution that allows you to have more than 3 users. I much prefer Wireguard and the flexibility it has with it.
Very important feature. The current module is absolutely poor!
With many people working from home during the COVID-19 Crisis, it would have been nice to have a fully functional VPN, usable on Android and iPhone ....
Too bad there is not more people to vote for it neither interest from Plesk team

I already voted but I also see a need for VPN
No votes for a COmplete (and standard) VPN support on Plesk ?
Am I the only one who see a profund lack of functionality here ?

I'd just like to be able to check a box in the Plesk UI, and then be able to enable the built-in iOS VPN setting in my iPhone and have a secure tunneled date stream straight through my server's IP address. Seems like it should be as simple as setting up an email account.

Fully agree, for VPS as well as for Raspberry Pi there are many install scripts on how to install OpenVPN, Sophos UTM and others integrate OpenVPN as well, however none of such setups is such restricted and unusable as the Plesk VPN. Also need to adjust to use with MacOS Viscosity.
Man can try to install an Openvpn like from https://www.digitalocean.com/community/tutorials/how-to-setup-and-configure-an-openvpn-server-on-centos-7
But then after, you get stuck with firewall problems. (see https://support.plesk.com/hc/en-us/articles/115000064469 and https://talk.plesk.com/threads/openvpn-and-firewall-on-linux.342130/#post-821227 )
In addition that dev tun is then only option supported by either IOS or Android clients, we should be allowed to choose one or the other for the VPN configuration
