OpenVPN Client Export Utility



  • I finally got around to ditching PPTP and setting up OpenVPN (both for remote access and site-to-site). It is working great. However, I was wandering if there is a way to update the OpenVPN client that is generated with the Client Export Utility package. Currently it is 2.2.0. I would like to update it with 2.2.2 (soon to be 2.2.3). I was hoping it would be as easy as finding the Client Export Utility directory and swapping out the source code that is currently in there with the latest.

    IIRC you can just take the openvpn installer exe and stick it in
    /usr/local/share/openvpn/client-export/template/openvpn-install.exe

    We use the one we use because it has known-good IPv6 support. It's not stock, it's a patched branch.

    The 2.3 client might be usable for us once that stabilizes.

    What do you need in 2.2.2 that isn't in the client we have?



  • Ahhh, there it is. Couldn't find it.

    Nothing wrong with the 2.2.2 really, it was just more curiosity then anything. For some reason I was thinking that the client export utility was maintained by someone else, not the pfSense team. I just noticed the OpenVPN TAP bridging fix package as well. So will that just be part of the 2.1 release instead of a package?

    Yes, tap is fixed properly in 2.1. The package was created by backporting some of the fixes, though not all were brought back to 2.0.x
