    A question for the developers/maintainers, what is the preferred protocol for notifying about these types of items?  Don't post because you're already track these types of updates?  Open a Redime "ToDo" item?  Continue posting in the forum?  I just want to follow protocol.  Thanks.

    We already track them. For the server side of things, we'll update it when it gets into FreeBSD ports. For the export package, it will get updated when the next opportunity presents itself.

    Actually pfSense 2.4 snapshots will have it in the next new build, it was already in FreeBSD ports we just had to update it.

    Export might be some time today if I get a few moments to build it and test.



  • Great! Thanks for the quick reply.

    OpenVPN client export is updated with 2.4.1 installers (and 2.3.14-Ix02)



  • Running 2.4.0.b.20170405.1505 and client export package 1.4.2_1.

    When I click to export any of the "Current Windows Installer (2.4.1-Ix01)" or "Old Windows Installers (2.3.14-Ix02)", I get prompted to download the file but it is only 6 KB.  I then get a crash report on the dashboard with the following output:

    Thank you.

    Somehow your template files must have been wiped out.

    Try this:

    pkg upgrade -f openvpn-client-export-2.4.1
    

    Or uninstall the package and then reinstall the package from the GUI



  • The delete then reinstall via the GUI worked.

    Upgrading to the latest snapshots seems to remove the template files and removed the "Client Export" option from the GUI.  I used the reinstall option to get the GUI option back but didn't know about the template files.

    Either way, I'm back in business, appreciate the quick response!

    This should be fixed now, Renato spotted the problem and I pushed a quick fix for it. Updating the package should be safe in any order now.
