Intermittent connection with openvpn



  • We are running pfsense 2.4.4-RELEASE-p3 and running the openvpn service. We have noticed that the vpn connection freezes all the time. It says it is connected but not trafffic goes through. The only way to fix is to disconnect and reconnect. Any ideas about this issue?

    When OpenVPN is disconnected, it can take up to a minute to notice. What is probably happening is your connection was cut off in some way -- either loss of connectivity, or another client with the same cert/username connected and bumped yours off -- and it takes a minute to realize it needs to reconnect.
