Hostname of pfsense is attached to openvpn file



  • Hello,

    When exporting openvpn user, it attaches the hostname of pfsense to its files. Is there any option I can disable this? Beside this, is it secure to keep "pfsense" in hostname in System / General Setup or it should be different?

    pfsense-UDP4-1194-username.ovpn
    pfsense-UDP4-1194-username.p12
    pfsense-UDP4-1194-username-tls.key

    There is no way to exclude the hostname, it does this to ensure the filenames are unique between firewalls, so if you connect to multiple firewalls, the filenames are not the same.

    I'm not sure it makes much difference for the hostname in that context, whether or not you want it to show "pfsense" there or another hostname is up to you.
