#1237 new Bug / Defect

Network Connection created by OpenVPN CLient 2.4.8 in Windows 10 1809 isn't fully recognized

Reported by: mrosen Owned by:
Priority: major Milestone: release 2.4.8
Component: Networking Version:
Severity: Not set (select this one, unless your'e a OpenVPN developer) Keywords: W


We are Using Microfocus Zenworks in our environment, which has a functionality to detect "locations" based on certain parameters of the local network connection, in our case, simply by the ip address range. E.G, when a machine has a IP in the network, then we consider this the location "VPN" and can act upon that.

Immediately after updating OpenVPN client 2.4.7 to 2.4.8, this stopped working. Downgrading to 2.4.7 makes it work again.

The only other hint I found that is different and maybe related is that with 2.4.8, Windows shows the openvpn adapter in ipconfig /all as ""Unbekannter Adapter Lan-Verbindung" ("Unknown Adapter Lan-Connection", my translation), whereas in 2.4.7 it's called "Ethernet-Adapter Ethernet 2"
