    You must have the verbosity up high in the advanced options for that connection.

    Those commands are from the system checking the OpenVPN status for that server. Either from Status > OpenVPN or the OpenVPN widget on the dashboard.

    Remove any "verb X" statements you have in the advanced options.



  • Thanks!



  • I get this too. Is this normal? It doesn't seem like it's disconnecting. My verb is at 3 set in pfsense but still shows this every few minutes.



  • It's normal for increased verbosity. It's the management client obtaining status that's disconnecting, not the OpenVPN clients. The status pages and RRD stats gathering is the source.



  • Remove any "verb X" statements you have in the advanced options.

    Where exactly is? Have that one in my logs, but at vpn>ipsec>advanced settings all has "control" state,besides that have not relation to openvpn. All right, it was stupid to looking for openvpn verbosity here, but where also? :'(
    status>system logs>settings  - that section doesnt have any mention of verbosity.
    system>advanced=nothing about openvpn
    p.s. i have OpenVPN widget on the dashboard

    I really suffered by paranoia :-\

    okay look's like it's here:
    vpn=>openvpn=>edit server=>go 20 setps to bottom. Treasure is here. I did change level from 5 to default (not 4, but default).
