#1074 assigned Feature Wish

extend iservice to turn off DHCPv4 (or handle address service)

Description (last modified by Gert Döring)

as per the thread on openvpn-devel, if the tun/tap interface on windows is set to "manual IP address", open will fail - openvpn.exe runs non-privileged but still tries to run "netsh" to re-enable DHCP, which has to fail.

Two possible approaches to fix this:

  • teach the iservice to turn on DHCP
  • or just use the iservice to configure the IPv4 address (as we do for IPv6) if "no DHCP" is detected

Tagging this as "Windows GUI" even if it isn't (it's not tap*windows either, and we have no other "windows" category)
