Pfsense OpenVPN PIA Auth_Failed



  • I setup my connections according to https://www.privateinternetaccess.com/helpdesk/guides/routers/pfsense/pfsense-2-4-3-setup-guide
    I setup the CA cert according to 2048 Cert downloaded from PIA
    I Thought i setup everything the way it should but I am setting getting these messages.
