Alpine container with openvpn to connect openvpn server gives permission error

Published

This is my Dockerfile:

FROM  alpine:edge
COPY openvpn.conf /etc/openvpn/
RUN apk update
RUN mkdir /run/openrc
RUN touch /run/openrc/softlevel

RUN apk add --no-cache bash openssl openrc
WORKDIR /etc/openvn
RUN apk add openvpn

CMD ["openvpn", "--script-security", "2", "--config", "/etc/openvpn/openvpn.conf"]

I just want to have a openvpnin alpine based container. I have landed into a problem. What I want is that the vpn should only run inside the container and I should put this openvpn container in same network as haproxy to access the vpn.

When i run the container i am getting below permission denied error in the end.

2021-10-26 20:22:07 Unrecognized option or missing or extra parameter(s) in /etc/openvpn/openvpn.conf:16: block-outside-dns (2.5.3)
2021-10-26 20:22:07 DEPRECATED OPTION: --cipher set to 'AES-256-CBC' but missing in --data-ciphers (AES-256-GCM:AES-128-GCM). Future OpenVPN version will ignore --cipher for cipher negotiations. Add 'AES-256-CBC' to --data-ciphers or change --cipher 'AES-256-CBC' to --data-ciphers-fallback 'AES-256-CBC' to silence this warning.
