OpenVPN Encryption algorithm empty



  • Greeting,
    I’m testing pfSense 2.0 RC1, and in particular the new OpenVPN capabilities. The installation is on VMWare workstation if this is related. Everything is fine up until now. But when I try to configure new Remote Access (Road Warrior) VPN Server, I can’t select Encryption algorithm.
    After searching this forum, I have seen some screen shots in which this drop down is filled with the usual options.

    I have tested the stable build and a one from yesterday (pfSense-2.0-RC1-i386-20110412-1110), with the same result.
    Could you advise me please, on how to fix this?

    That would imply that somehow your system is missing the actual openvpn binary.

    Was this a firmware upgrade or a full install?

    EDIT: I just checked the current ISO image and the openvpn binary is there.



  • It was full install.

    The pfSense-2.0-RC1-i386-20110414-0940.iso is OK, just installed it. The drop down is full now, will test these days for the functionality and report back.

    Thank you for the answer.



  • Everything seems alright, I’ve setup a OpenVPN server with encryption, and successfully connect. Thank you one more time.
