You left out the most basic info of what build you're using. Sash has been doing lots of work on OpenVPN for the past half year or so and pretty much every build has had changes. _________________ Read the forum announcements thoroughly! Be cautious if you're inexperienced.

Looking for bricks and spare routers to expand my collection. (not interested in G spec models)
After filling out all the required fields and applying, the CA cert field is cleared. Then I go to /tmp/openvpn, and the ca.crt file is missing.
About the skin ("gui style"):
Some might find it silly that I have mentioned the skin I use. It's actually important, because some skins break functionality, and fail to show information or buttons.
I found the problem. NVRAM seems to be very tight on space, and when you blow the limit, CA Cert fails to get set. Very tricky to solve. I only got the idea upon discovering this unrelated [url="https://secure.dd-wrt.com/wiki/index.php/Useful_Scripts#Compress_the_Firewall_Script_.28to_reduce_nvram_usage.29"]script to compress firewall scripts[/url]. I removed some bulky unneeded nvram variables, and removed all comments from the openvpn script to conserve space. Now the "CA Cert" field saves.
This nvram problem must really drive people nuts in various situations because no meaningful error is given to GUI users. How would they know?
