Getting openvpn warnings in the logs
I've noticed these warnings in the logs:
Now...I know that under my VPN provider settings of the servers *.ovpn it says "cipher AES-256-CBC
auth SHA512", but I'm using GCM which is also supported by the server. If the warning is just because of that then I guess that's nothing but you tell me what should I do about these warnings.
Perhaps add something in the custom options?
The configured settings differ between the client and server. It's just a warning though. If it connects and passes traffic it's clearly negotiated a matching set of values there.
@stephenw10 Just what I thought...Thank you!
Edit: Can I do something to come as close as possible to the server settings by adding custom options etc? Except for changing the encryption type haha, GCM is much better
You probably have
Enable Negotiable Cryptographic Parametersset otherwise I would expect it to fail with those values mismatched. In which case you can set it to match the server values and it should still negotiate to aes-256-gcm.
That will remove those warnings but not help in any other way. I would just ignore them if it's working OK.
You probably have Enable Negotiable Cryptographic Parameters set
Actually not. I disabled it since it seemed to not respect my preference and just use CBC if I remember correctly so I said F it lol
I'll live with those warnings.
Thank you :)
