Description

I recently tested openvpn-devel (DISTVERSION 201425) and had this message in the log:

Fri Sep 12 21:29:00 2014 10.8.1.2/::ffff:<some-remote-ip> Bad compression stub decompression header byte: 102

It made the VPN connection unusable for access to samba shares. icmp/ping worked.

Going back to 2.3.4 and it worked again. What can I do to help to debug this ?

Seems you're missing a "compress" or "comp-lzo" setting on the side where the error is seen. Or you have compiled the port without [X] LZO compression.

Can't tell you why the same config is working in 2.3.4 - it should be downwards compatible in that respect (but -devel knows many more compression algorithms, and the port has options).

To diagnose this better, I'd need to see the log file (--verb 3) on the side where the error is logged, and the config file (without passwords, public IP addresses, keys, of course).

The openvpn-devel port is a bit out of date, but I don't know that current source would resolve your issue. If you want to try something for me, please do the following:

Update the Makefile in security/openvpn-devel and change DISTVERSION = 201425 to DISTVERSION = 201438

Run "make makesum" to update the checksum.

Build that version and let me know if the problem goes away.

Alternatively, I've attached a patch for the port to this ticket.
