Problem creating client-override config

  • I'm running pfSense 2.0-RELEASE  (i386) as the client and server for an OpenVPN tunnel in a site-to-site PKI configuration.  The tunnel network is defined to be  When the OpenVPN interface ovpns1 starts up, it gets this configuration:

    ovpns1: flags=8051 <up,pointopoint,running,multicast>metric 0 mtu 1500
    options=80000 <linkstate>inet6 fe80::230:48ff:fe72:8f20%ovpns1 prefixlen 64 scopeid 0x8
    inet –> netmask 0xffffffff
    nd6 options=3 <performnud,accept_rtadv>Opened by PID 23359

    When I create the client-override configuration, the client-override file in /var/etc/openvpn-csc/ gets created.  The "ifconfig-push" line in that file reads:


    and the ovpnc1 interface on the client comes up with the same configuration as the ovpns1 interface on the server and the tunnel does not get created.  However if I edit the client-override file so the the "ifconfig-push" line reads:


    then the tunnel comes up and things work properly (modulo getting the firewall rules correct).

    The same behavior happens with 2.0-RC3  (i386).

    Is this the expected behavior?  If not, what are the correct values to enter in the client-override setup tab?  (screenshot of tab attached).

    Thanks in advance for you help,
