VPN connection didn't became as default gateway by default

Severity: Not set (select this one, unless your'e a OpenVPN developer) Keywords:


According to documentation VPN connection must not become a gateway only when a parameter is specified 'pull-filter ignore redirect-gateway'.

But I has config without 'pull-filter ignore redirect-gateway' and this connection not became as default gateway.

It a bug?

Here is my .ovpn file:

dev tun
proto udp4
remote 607
reneg-sec 86400
remote-cert-tls server
key-direction 1
Cut the certificate
# 2048 bit OpenVPN static key
-----BEGIN OpenVPN Static key V1-----
Cut the key
-----END OpenVPN Static key V1-----

There is no redirect-gateway in your config, so OpenVPN will not redirect the gateway. If the server is pushing one, we can't see it, because there is no log file included (verb 3).

pull-filter is an expert option to ignore/reject options configured on the OpenVPN server and pushed towards the clients if you do not want that - but if there is no option there to start with, there is nothing to ignore.

Long story short: if you want a redirected default gateway, add redirect-gateway def1 to your client config (or have it pushed from the server).

Generally speaking, this bug tracker is more intended for "is this a bug?" type questions. User questions are better fit in the OpenVPN Forum, or on the openvpn-users mailing list.
