#41 closed Bug / Defect (worksforme)

Default gateway not detected (linux)

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


openvpn is unable to detect a network interface as default gateway.
when i'm using my umts modem my default route looks like this one:
"default via dev ppp0" (ip route),
"ppp0 00000000 00000000 0003 0 0 0 00000000 0 0 0" (/proc/net/route)
unfortunately openvpn will not use this route because the gateway ip is 00000000.

a concluding problem is that openvpn prints only a warning and does not abort.
so my traffic gets not through the tunnel but the vpn tunnel is up. :-(

please fix this!

This bug report was filed against a very old OpenVPN version. Can somebody confirm that this is still an issue with latest OpenVPN and Linux kernel versions?
