Frequent breaks in connectivity

  • Hi,

    I configured an OpenVPN client on pfSense v2.4.4-RELEASE-p3

    Quite often, I lose the connectivity between the internal network and the VPN.

    I do not see any particular message in the logs (Current verbosity level is 4).

    The only solution is to restart the OpenVPN service and then it works directly.

  • Ton log :

    Sep 23 06:03:02 	openvpn 	31296 	WARNING: file '/var/etc/openvpn/client1.up' is group or others accessible
    Sep 23 06:03:02 	openvpn 	5052 	SIGTERM[hard,] received, process exiting

    Le process "31296" est connected - last news : this WARNING

    But then : another process "5052" receives a (local ?) SIGTERM, which means : the process received the order to stop.

    My questions are : who is process 31296 - and who is process 5052 ?

    Do you have a server and client OpenVPN ?

    Several system (pfSense) can restart services like OpenVPN.
    One of them is : unbound (the DNS cache resolver) - did it restart at the same moment ?

    There is no OpenVPN server on this pfSense. And no other OpenVPN process than this client.

    The logs you've picked show 06:03, which is when I restarted manually the OpenVPN client connection. I lost the connectivity around 05:15.

    The DNS resolver is disabled.
