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.
