I may be wrong, but this sounds suspiciously like what we use Gava's client-nat patch for. To enable us to NAT the device's local IP to the one assigned dynamically by openvpn (dhcp). Marvin Sent from my iPhone > On Sep 23, 2016, at 4:21 PM, David Woodhouse wrote: > >>

Thank you Jan, Gert et al for the replies. Especially Jan for going to all that trouble! Jan, to all your points — yes I agree. Upgrading this device to a newer kernel will be a major undertaking, I won’t bother you all with the details here. I asked the question to get an idea of how recent

Hi, From a user perspective, there should probably be a way to disable any programmatic setting of mtu. In our usage, the same network interface that OpenVPN traffic goes out on often also must carry large traffic to other destinations that not uncommonly go through some low mtu path. In

I noticed the same issue. I tried upgrading from an earlier version with an .ovpn file (with all settings and inline certs etc that was working previously). The .ovpn is configured as client to receive dhcp address from the server. But when we ran the upgrade .msi, which created both a TAP
