OpenVPN dropouts every 30 mins with IPv6



  • For those people experiencing frequent dropouts with OpenVPN server running on a pfSense box with IPv6 enabled, a fix was previously documented in https://redmine.pfsense.org/issues/3669

    NB The dropouts will occur even if OpenVPN server is only configured for IPv4.

    Note that there are 2 parts to the fix:

    • First part relates to IPv4 script /etc/rc.newwanip - this fix is rolled into 2.1.4 and later.

    • Second part relates to IPv6 script /etc/rc.newwanipv6… But appears to be awaiting review (despite ticket being marked Resolved).

    In the meantime it is easy to apply the fix and stop the dropouts.

    Perhaps someone could reassign the ticket for review & integration into future release(s)?

    Thanks,
    David
