pfSense won't let me save OpenVPN settings - Solved



  • Hi,

    Have no idea what else to do. The pfSense box is offline and not connected to a WAN, but I'm only trying to edit the ovpn client's settings WTH?!...What does it want from me?

    If your WAN does NOT have an IP4 set up, the server can't configure/run because it can't bind itself to the interface. You can e.g. select "localhost" instead of WAN and it should save just fine, but if you select a physical/virtual interface, that interface must have an active working IP4 configured.

    BTW: if you wrote your IP in the local port field you showed in your screenshot above, you have other problems at hand... the IP goes in the box below ;)
