Basic info

  • Time: Monday 1st February 2016, 20:00 CET (19:00 UTC)
  • Place: #openvpn-meeting channel on Freenode IRC network


  • Interactive Service
    • Review the service component
  • The Windows service
    • openvpnserv.exe is crude, has many issues (e.g. ticket #595 and Selva's email) and nobody has stepped in to fix the code
    • There is now a drop-in replacement, openvpnserv2, written in C#
    • mattock's ovpnsvcsetup (a simple configuration frontend for NSSM) has not progressed much due to lack of time
    • Questions:
      • What do we do about openvpnserv.exe?
      • How do we handle reviews if we decide to make the service component a separate subproject?
      • Do we bundle openvpnserv.exe (replacement) in the standard installers or make it a separate download?
      • Implementation details for openvpnserv.exe
        • Handling of sleep+resume: should the service forcibly kill openvpn.exe on sleep, or restart it only if/when it dies after resume? Usability issues (e.g. broken connections)?
  • Update --block-outside-dns to work on Windows Vista
