Hi,
i am running DD-WRT v3.0-r40009 std (06/11/19)on a Linksys WRT1200AC. OpenVPN (via NordVPN) connects and browserleaks.com also found no leaks. But i am having following lines added to the log everytime i refresh the Status->OpenVPN Panel. I also didnt find anything related on google, so what is causing this MANAGEMENT connect and disconnect?


Code:
20201103 15:56:39 MANAGEMENT: Client connected from [AF_INET]127.0.0.1:16
20201103 15:56:39 D MANAGEMENT: CMD 'log 500'

When I am fooling around with OVPN I use Command Terminal to watch the log.
Code:
cat /var/log/messages|grep vpn

Or a running dump.
Code:
tail -fn30 /var/log/messages

This doesn't keep filling it up with those connect/disconnect messages.
There are probably other better ways.
