I can confirm that this is a problem with 1.7.0 and 1.7.1

Okay. I seemed to have found a workaround. I have problems if I refresh with the new rom and then immediately reload my old config, but it seems to work if I refresh the rom, then start up the openvpn server to generate new keys, and then load in my old configuration.

The bug seems to be that loading in a backup file doesn't seem to set the bit that tells the system that keys have been generated for openvpn.

Hi it's not a good thing to load a old backup file from 1.62 in to 1.71
Linksys WRT1900AC V2 Gargoyle 1.11

Hi,
For my first look and testing OpenVpn works now fine on TPLink-1043ND and firmware 1.7.1.
But after the first router restart the router isn't responsible again like in the firmware versions before. I had to go in failsafe mode again to launch "firstboot". :-(

Thanks for your help!

I am having the same problem with TPLINK WRD-3600 on 1.8.0 firmware.
Can not connect. Please let me know if there is a solution. Thank you.

When I look at the log file I see a line that says:
Options errors: You must define TUN/TAP device (--dev)

Can anyone tell me what this means and how to fix it?

Are you able to login to your Gargoyle router using ssh and post the output of

Code: Select all

uci show openvpn
Can you help someone else get Gargoyle up and running?
TL-WDR3600 : Gargoyle 1.9.0 : NBN FixedWireless
TL-WR1043ND-V2 : Gargoyle 1.8.0 : 3G Huawei E160E
