Hi guys,

i have a Netgear XR700 with v3.0-r42132 DDWRT.

I'm using OpenVPN Client for several month without any problems.
Since 2 weeks i have many problems with it.

When i restart my Router, it does not connect to the VPN automatically. I always has to delete anything in the CA Cert field - click save and then reenter the key again.

Then the VPN is connection normaly until next reboot.

I already tried reset with telnet nvram erase....but still the same.
My dad has the same setup without any problems.

Is there a possibility to safe the ca certification via Command at startup ?

in Syslog comes:
openvpn[1462]: Options error: You must define CA file (--ca) or CA path (--capath)

I already searched for this but i didnt find any solution that worked Sad

Thanks alot Smile

Can you post a screenshot of OVPN settings page?

What is the nvram used / free ( See Status/router page)

Hmm I was hoping you ran out of nvram somehow, because that is what I have seen happening, but that does not appear to be the case

One thing that can be related is that you use
Code:
auth-nocache
that is not recommended for DDWRT.
DDWR uses cached credentials to reconnect on disconnection, so delete it.

There is much work done on startup sequence in the latest builds, so I think it could also be build related, either go back to i.e. 41813 or wait for a new build.

i recommend you log in with sftp and look at the files in /tmp/openvpncl (on Kong build assume BS same location) just in case something has corrupted them. the openvpn.conf should be very similar the the downloaded ovpn file. (check for any duplicates.
do what as egc has recommended above and also you could try un-ticking the radio tls button and adding "remote-cert-tls server" in additional config, you shouldn't need to but maybe worth a try as everything looks fine.
