#666 closed Bug / Defect (fixed)

Interactive service does not stop if openvpn sessions are running

Reported by: Selva Nair Owned by:
Priority: major Milestone: alpha 2.4
Component: Generic / unclassified Version: OpenVPN git master branch (Community Ed)
Severity: Not set (select this one, unless your'e a OpenVPN developer) Keywords:
Cc: Heiko Hund


'sc stop OpenVPNServiceInteractive' should stop the service, but it continues running if any openvpn sessions are active when its stopped.

Openvpn process itself terminates (unless there are more than one active sessions) but the service reports "STOP PENDING" on query. In this state the service continues to honor new client connections. Once in this state, the only way to stop the service appears to be to kill it.

If there are no active openvpn sessions started by the service, "sc stop .." works without incident. This odd behavior is present from the initial commit a24dd2e31f196c76594666f37c130817402acb15

Thanks for digging into this *and* sending a patch right away :-) - reading the patch and reading up the functions makes me believe I understand the change and that it's the right thing to do - finding the issue myself would have never worked out.
