Setting OpenVPN Ping Interval to 100 crashes OpenVPN server



  • When I went to VPN>OpenVPN>Servers>Edit
    and changed the keepalive ping interval from 10 to 100,
    my vpn immediately quit working. The services>status widget on the dashboard showed the openvpn service wasn't running, and wouldn't start when I clicked start. When I changed the interval back to 10, it started. It's TUN and all other settings are default I think.
    2.4.5-RELEASE-p1 (amd64)

    Look at the OpenVPN logs they will tell you why it was failing to start.
