I'm an OpenVPN user and I've just discovered m0n0wall.
Today I've tried out the image with the latest OpenVPN code which is
available from here:
Specifically I used this one:
After many unsuccessful tries (it connected but nothing passed on the
tunnel) I noticed the following recurring error in the syslog:
openvpn: WARNING: 'comp-lzo' is present in remote config but missing
in local config, remote='comp-lzo'
So I added in the expert settings the string:
and applied changes
But now it doesn't connect at all (interface never gets up) , and gives
this other error:
openvpn: Options error: Unrecognized option or missing parameter(s)
in /var/etc/ovpn_cli_tun0.conf:17: comp-lzo (2.0.2)
To me it seems like OpenVPN has been compiled without LZO support.
Is it correct?
Just to be sure, I removed the "comp-lzo" parameter from the expert
settings and also on the server to which I was trying to connect and the
tunnel connected ok and the data flowed ok.
So it is definitely a compression issue.
This is the only thing that keeps me from switching to m0n0wall, could you
please correct it?
Thank you in advance
