This is as it is documented, and this all we can do today as we do not know if the client would prefer something else.

So, reclassify as feature request, for "more full-blown cipher negotiation".

Arne is working on "proper NCP negotiation" right now...

@tincantech: since you opened this, and it's a bit unclear what we should do with the ticket, returning to you - what is the feature you are asking for, and has it been addressed with the new NCP in 2.5.0?

Resolution: fixed
Status: assignedclosed

For clarity, the problem seemed to be that while the servers --ncp-ciphers list contained multiple ciphers, only the first was ever pushed. This seemed like an error to me at the time.

Now I understand that --ncp-ciphers was the first stage to adding full cipher negotiation to openvpn.

Now that we have Arne's new cipher negotiation I think it is safe to close this as Fixed.
