#919 new Bug / Defect

Error "OpenVPNROUTE6: cannot parse gateway spec 'net_gateway'"

Reported by: mike_SF Owned by:
Priority: minor Milestone: release 2.4.4
Component: IPv6 Version: OpenVPN 2.4.0 (Community Ed)
Severity: Not set (select this one, unless your'e a OpenVPN developer) Keywords: --route IPv6 net_gateway


On a client with the following entries in the configuration file

route net_gateway
route-ipv6 2001:4860:4860::8888/128 net_gateway

The first one (IPv4) works like a charm, but the second one (IPv6) causesthe following error in the log:

OpenVPNROUTE6: cannot parse gateway spec 'net_gateway'

Pseudorandomly replacing net_gateway with net_gateway_ipv6 yields the following error:

OpenVPNROUTE6: cannot parse gateway spec 'net_gateway_ipv6'

In both cases the documented functionality, that a route to that particular IPv6 address is established through the gateway and outside of the VPN, is not established.

Version information:
