#1223 closed Bug / Defect (wontfix)

Misleading "AES-CBC Cipher Algorithm" option

Reported by: tom.ty89 Owned by: OpenVPN Inc.
Priority: major Milestone:
Component: OpenVPN Connect Version: OpenVPN Connect for Android v3.0.1
Severity: Not set (select this one, unless your'e a OpenVPN developer) Keywords:


The option is merely equivalence of ncp-disable. If the ovpn does not have cipher specified, BF-CBC would be used instead of AES-128-CBC or AES-256-CBC.

Not sure I am following you here. What option do you specify, exactly, and what is the desired outcome?

If you specify --cipher aes-128-cbc on both sides, this is what is used.

If you specify no --cipher and disable NCP, yes, BF-CBC is what you get.

Ah, this is about OpenVPN Connect... so maybe there are buttons in the App that are confusing. Sorry, I misread this, can only speak for OpenVPN 2.x
