OpenVPN 2.5

The new client is out: https://openvpn.net/community-downloads It does work against Gargoyle but with two warnings (the second one is new for sure, not sure of the first): WARNING : Compression for receiving enabled. Compression has been used in the past to break encryption. Sent packets are not com...

Archer C7V2 (1.12.0) boot loop (every minute)

Someone reported a boot loop issue some years ago that is the same as I saw this week with 1.12.0. The same way recommended there to make it stop (deleting BW data) is also what worked for me. https://www.gargoyle-router.com/phpbb/viewtopic.php?t=7149 The Archer C7V2 router in question had 1.12.0 on...

Re: Version 1.12.0 : New stable version

Out of the clear blue, today I saw this boot loop issue, resolved in the very same way (deleting BW data). This router has had the current build since it came out, so the problem took a very long time to turn up. Archer C7V2. https://www.gargoyle-router.com/phpbb/viewtopic.php?t=7149 Is there any wa...

Re: checkmyip.com causing ddns plugin to update wrong IP

I wouldn't say corrected, necessarily -- it may just be hit and miss. No harm in effectively editing it out, since there are many others, and it's impractical to be monitoring it.

Re: Hourly "daemon.notice openvpn"

That reneg-sec setting I mentioned earlier turns out not to have been involved, as setting it higher had no effect. It was just a guess based on it being the only thing in the manual mentioning an hour. So, when on 3, here's the rest of the log not quoted above (when it was on 1), just in case anyth...

Re: Hourly "daemon.notice openvpn"

2 didn't, but 1 roughly cut it in half, down to this (not the real IP): Mon Jan 6 14:22:32 2020 user.notice ovpn-cn-check: control verified OK Mon Jan 6 14:22:32 2020 daemon.notice openvpn(custom_config)[763]: control/1.2.3.4:56699 peer info: IV_VER=2.4.8 Mon Jan 6 14:22:32 2020 daemon.notice openvp...

Hourly "daemon.notice openvpn"

Just a curiosity, but I noticed that OpenVPN is a bit more chatty in the log in 1.12 compared to 1.10. If a client is connected a lot, it really adds up. On a router where a client is connected continuously (and that is reflected in OpenVPN status: it's not disconnecting/reconnecting), the system lo...

Re: checkmyip.com causing ddns plugin to update wrong IP

EDIT4: There was one more thing I thought. Why suggest an IP address when I can suggest a local domain - it might be better. Edit /etc/dnsmasq.conf and add a line: local=/checkmyip.com/ [/quote] Brilliant. I'm going to try that for aruljohn.com, which has been returning a non-routable(!) IP (10.20....

Re: OpenVPN server.conf: modifications can be overwritten

I'm not sure, short of it saving just the changes instead of what it seems to be doing, which is starting over with it.

Is a secondary conf possible, one that would chain to the main one? That would solve it, since additions could be kept there.

OpenVPN server.conf: modifications can be overwritten

Is it intended that manual additions to /etc/openvpn/server.conf will be deleted when clicking Save Changes on the OpenVPN page? It may happen in some other scenarios, too, I'm not sure yet. If it is intended, is there any way around it? That's not the kind of file where you'd necessarily want this ...
