I've been running dd-wrt for years and I have had OpenVPN working for a long time using a static key.
This weekend I upgraded my firmware and decided it was time to also upgrade to a certificate-based OpenVPN solution. When I first tried to get it working, everything was fine until I got an error that said that my certificate was not yet valid. I searched these forums and saw that a lot of people had that issue because the certs were created in GMT and that if they set their timezone to UTC that it would work. So I did that, and I was able to successfully connect.
However, now (and nothing has changed) I am no longer able to connect to my openvpn system. I've tried the timezone in UTC and in the correct time (UTC -7) and neither works. I get the same error when I look at the logs (I replaced my remote IP with xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx):
I haven't seen any reference to tls-auth in any of the tutorials. What key do I reference with it?
Here is my server conf:
server-bridge 192.168.1.1 255.255.255.0 192.168.1.128 192.168.1.199
keepalive 15 120
and this is my client conf:
keepalive 10 120
