#857 new Bug / Defect

Connection attempt from Windows client causes server computer network lockup for SSH connections.

Reported by: R0b0t1 Owned by:
Priority: major Milestone:
Component: Generic / unclassified Version: OpenVPN 2.3.4 (Community Ed)
Severity: Not set (select this one, unless your'e a OpenVPN developer) Keywords:



I will attach configuration files. There may be some misconfiguration on my part, however, while attempting to connect to the server from Windows the virtual machine the server is running on fails to service open SSH connections and does not open new ones. Running ping in the background keeps the connection usable, as well as attempting to connect via secure shell (though the connections do not appear to complete). This may affect other protocols.

I will when I get a chance to test. What was happening was the client was unable to connect despite having the proper key. I generated a key without a password and it worked. The encrypted key file was not malformed. Thank you for the response.
