#37 closed Bug / Defect (worksforme)

Management Console inaccurate state information

Reported by: samuli Owned by:
Priority: major Milestone:
Component: Management Version: OpenVPN 2.1.0 / 2.1.1 (Community Ed)
Severity: Not set (select this one, unless your'e a OpenVPN developer) Keywords:


I am enabling the management telnet console. Sometimes when I connect and type state it reports back "WAITING" when actually the VPN is connected and can even be pinged over. It seems that the management console is out of sync with the actual VPN and giving inaccurate state information. A restart of the vpn fixes things, but it happens against some time later.
