#1486 assigned Bug / Defect

IPv6 Servers do not support "nopool"

Reported by: apollo13 Owned by: Gert Döring
Priority: minor Milestone: release 2.6
Component: IPv6 Version: OpenVPN 2.5.7 (Community Ed)
Severity: Not set (select this one, unless your'e a OpenVPN developer) Keywords:

Description

The doc string actually suggests that it maybe should work:
https://github.com/OpenVPN/openvpn/blob/15ba808503113f685d254e9007b8e9937e01532d/src/openvpn/helper.c#L158-L172

But the code prevents it:
https://github.com/OpenVPN/openvpn/blob/15ba808503113f685d254e9007b8e9937e01532d/src/openvpn/helper.c#L182

Is there any reason why nopool could not be supported for ´server-ipv6´ just like with server?

I think the underlying reason for this check was that the IPv6 pool code did not work (back in the 2.2 days...) if there was no IPv4 pool.

Will investigate, with the new ipv4/ipv6 pool detanglement, this does not really has a strong reason anymore. But the code needs to be carefully checked if this is really true.
