PfSense 2.0 and OpenVPN tap error Management Daemon Unreachable



  • I get an [Error] Management Daemon Unreachable under Status / OpenVPN when creating my OpenVPN configuration.

    If I switch to "tun" the error goes away but I have all my devices configured to use tap instead of tun.

    Any help will be greatly appreciated.

    There are multiple problems with tap on 2.0 and 2.0.1. There is a tap patch package to fix some of them, but I'm not sure if it would help with what you're seeing there. (Unless it isn't even running when set for tap, which is possible, check Status > Services)

    When I ran my tests with tap the status was showing up fine. Knowing the exact config you're running would help, including any custom options.



  • I switched to a Firebox X700 and OpenVPN now works…weird...
