I'd suggest removing the OpenVPN interface assignment, in most cases you don't need it.
Btw: It seems like you have the widescreen package installed, that is not compatible with 2.1. You should remove it and update to a next snapshot to make sure the changes are gone. Also the unbound package might not be supported.
Sorry if I am misunderstanding but if I remove the interface assignment for the OpenVPN client how would I go about setting up the gateway and rules for the outbound VPN traffic?
SN: The widescreen package is working well so far with the upgrade I did notice when I upgraded it removed my snort interfaces and rules assignments suppression lists etc… but probably my fault might not have had the "keep settings after uninstall" selected.
the IPv6 gateway is automatic and harmless. It would not be the source of any problems.
Thank You Gentlemen For Your Time I Guess My Real Question Is, Since My OpenVPN Tunnel Does Not Support IPv6 Is There A Way To Keep This Interface From Automatically Creating Or Starting The IPv6 Stuff On A Per Interface Basis? I Know If I Set Say My Wan Interface IPv6 To None Then A Gateway Is Not Created For It But The OpenVPN Creates A Gateway Anyways…
I Know Everyone Is Busy But Any Assistance Would Be Appreciated This Is A Great Community And An Awesome Project!
No. It's automatic, harmless, and is really not doing anything. It's not the cause of any problem you might have.
