#482 new Bug / Defect

Win64 client NDIS6 does not shut down TAP interface clearly upon disconnect

Reported by: Nfisher Owned by: jamesyonan
Priority: major Milestone:
Component: tap-windows6 Version: OpenVPN 2.3.5 (Community Ed)
Severity: Not set (select this one, unless your'e a OpenVPN developer) Keywords: NDIS6 TAP windows


I have openvpn-2.3.5-i602-x64 installed on Win8.1Ent (with latest updates).

I have multiple connection profiles and single TAP interface.
Client is being used in 'dev tap' mode.

When I disconnect from one server and connect to another, the IP settings on TAP interface are not applied properly but look like left intact from previous connection.

The workarounds are:

  1. Use dedicated TAP adapter for each connection profile


  1. Manually disable and reenable the TAP adapter after disconnection using 'adapter settings' windows snap-in.

can you provide a log file that shows what is happening (using the same tap adapter), and the client config used for that (without key, cert, ca, tls-auth, of course).
