A couple of times a day, there is a sudden flood of messages from openvpn to the openvpn server. About *6G* of the following sort of message:

I was running 2.1.1 and have now installed 2.1.4 and seen the same behavior.

I think the problem may be related to packet drops. If I turn off the wireless, it goes into the same frenzy of sending packets to the openvpn server port over the TAP interface. I don't understand why packets would be directed to the openvpn port at an address within the tunnel.

Problem solved. I had an extra default route added to the config file. Please close this.
