Description

In the gui, when I am already connected, I open up the status and press reconnect, then it does not reconnect, instead gives auth failed and a prompt comes up asking for password, which should have been previously saved.

Version: 2.2.22.4.0

For completeness: some earlier discussion on this may be found here.

Looks like the password cached by openvpn.exe is being rejected by the server. The client config showing auth-user-pass related directives and verb=4 log may help. Also if you have access to the server post the server config and related log.
