How to Restart Services on an On-Premise VPN server

Many services running on the VPN server need to be restarted to apply changes like enabling logs, external DNS, split routing, etc. On a Cloud VPN server, all these tasks are automated, and no human interaction is required. But for the On-Premise VPN server, the user must perform the restart since our control systems have no access to the server.

All required services can be restarted safely using the wrapper tool 'utnservice' installed into '/utunnel/bin' folder on the UTunnel VPN server.

1. Connect to your server using an SSH client. You need root privileges to perform the restart.

2. Run the below command with sudo privileges.

sudo /utunnel/bin/utnservice reload
