Notification in /tmp/rules.debug after OpenVPN Wizard



  • Hi everyone. I updated to the 2.4.3-RELEASE (amd64) and when running through the VPN Wizard, I get this result in the log:

    /var/db/notices_lastmsg.txt:4:22:38:51 There were error(s) loading the rules: /tmp/rules.debug:166: unknown protocol tcp4 - The line in question reads [166]: pass  in  quick  on $WAN reply-to ( bce0 1.2.3.4 ) inet proto tcp4  from any to 1.2.3.4 tracker 1523226536 keep state  label "USER_RULE: OpenVPN  wizard"

    I replaced the WAN IP in this example to 1.2.3.4. The wizard itself is successful, but when it seems like it tries to add the firewall rule and runs the filter reload is when the error occurs. Everything else is successful.

    Has anyone else experienced this?

    Yes. It's a bug in the wizard.

    Edit the firewall rule on WAN and set the protocol  from _any_to TCP and save.



  • @Derelict:

    Yes. It's a bug in the wizard.

    Edit the firewall rule on WAN and set the protocol  from _any_to TCP and save.

    Thanks for the reply and the solution! Worked like a charm  8)
