Cannot Install OpenVPN Client Export Utililty



  • Hello:

    I had the OpenVPN Client Export Utility installed and working on pfSense 2.1.  However, after upgrading to 2.1.1, the package no longer shows up as installed and the tab doesn't show up under OpenVPN.  I tried re-installing it but it will not install:

    I've seen a similar issue posted but no solutions - the problem mysteriously solved itself after some time: https://forum.pfsense.org/index.php?topic=45600.0

    I also found a bug report that looked related but I'm not a programmer so the discussion was very cryptic for me.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Any luck? I'm having the same problem

  • Thanks for the link doktornotor, but the suggestion from the other thread didn't work.

    j@svg - no luck yet.  If you find something, please let me know.

    On a side note, I upgraded pfSense to 2.1.2 but I still can't install the OpenVPN Client Export Utililty package.

    Repeat the commands from the other thread but using the zip-3.0-i386 directory rather than p7zip.



  • Thanks jimp!  That worked!
