this is openvpn AS, and bugs should be reported to the commercial openvpn, inc. support.

Since it is here already - @ordex: how do we handle AS bugs in the community trac?

This should definitely be posted to the support ticket system for Access Server. I would like to suggest that AS related tickets do not stay up here on trac, since it is meant for the open source version only.

Just reviewing and closing old tickets that were left open in the community site, although these were already copied into our internal tracking system and handled there.

This was resolved a long time ago - just closing it out on our community bug tracker now.

Note: See TracTickets for help on using tickets.
