BUG: OpenVPN client configs being overwritten



  • As per guidelines, posting particulars here for confirmation/discussion.

    I have an existing VPN client connection set up for privacy purposes (ala PIA, Nord, etc). Connection is nice & stable.

    I'm trying to set up another connection, connecting my own pfSense (current & patched 2.4.4-RELEASE-p3) to a oVPN server at a remote site I manage. I'm making use of the [Bundled Configurations Archive] (archive.ovpn) as provided by the [Client Export Utility].
    Archive seems to work well on my mobile & desktop, so functionality confirmed.

    I've created the client config on this pfSense box & establish connection OK, but when I go back & make changes to this (2nd) config (i.e. custom options, routing etc), it gets populated with SOME configuration setting for the 1st oVPN Client configuration.

    Certs seem OK, but values overloaded/overwritten include:

    • Server host or address
    • Description
    • Username
    • Password
    • unsure or otherwise not confident what else has changed.

    Initially I thought it was client-side caching, but experienced the same issues on multiple desktops (W10, Fedora), multiple browsers (Chrome & FireFox) & in privacy/incognito mode.

    Connection works OK if above values for 2nd connection is changed to what it should be.
