I have been searching for ways to fix these warnings,notes , etc, I know some of them are not affecting the vpn but would still like to fix them or eliminate them. here are the one I am trying to fix.

Using --management on a TCP port WITHOUT passwords is STRONGLY discouraged and considered insecure.


file '/tmp/openvpncl/credentials' is group or others accessible



the current --script-security setting may allow this configuration to call user-defined scripts



N Options error: Unrecognized option or missing or extra parameter(s) in [PUSH-OPTIONS]:7: block-outside-dns (2.5.0)


Im runnung R7800 with the latest firmware build DD-WRT v3.0-r45073M std (12/21/20)

Thank you

Block outside DNS is only for windows clients so if you do not have any let the server stop pushing it, but it does no harm.

There is no password on the management interface as it is only accessible through the router itself and that already has a password

Credentials is accessible as there is only the root user having access, the same holds true for the script security.

These warnings are if you setup on a server with multiple users. DDWRT has only one root user so yes you can discard these messages
