OpenVPN client disconnected [Solved]



  • Hi –

    I'm seeing the openvpn log being spammed every time openvpn status is checked via the management socket, once per minute and it's filling the log.  Anybody know a way to disable that?

    This post https://forum.pfsense.org/index.php?topic=79363.0 indicates it is due to too high 'verb'osity in the openvpn config, but I've already set it to zero.  So either it's not working (any longer?) or openvpn does not honor that setting for connections to the management socket.

    Do you have a "verb" directive in your advanced options?

    The drop-down selector puts one in but if you have one in advanced options it would override that chosen value.



  • No, no verb in advanced directives, but I found the problem.

    I have both an openvpn client (PIA) and server set up.  Verbosity was set to 'none' in one, but the other was set to '3'.  Sorry for the noise.
