I am running 1.21-ovpn1 - built on Sat Jan 14 11:59:35 CET 2006
on a 3-interface WRAP 1E box with a Soekris vpn1411 mini-pci crypto
card (hifn 9755 chip)
The crypto card is detected ok. OpenVPN works very nicely but it does
not seem to use the card : regardless of the cypher I am using, CPU
load on the box reads 100% during a file transfer over the tunnel.
I am using device polling so CPU load without the tunnel for the same
transfer is about 1%.
After some research I tried using "engine cryptodev" in OpenVPN's
expert options, in order to pass that option on to openssh.
In the log I can read this :
May 30 00:52:32 openvpn: OpenSSL error: cannot load engine 'cryptodev'
May 30 00:52:32 openvpn: Exiting
Am I missing something here ?
