OpenVPN Remote Access (SSL/TLS + User Auth) stopped working



  • I upgraded to

    2.2-RC (amd64) built on Sun Jan 11 17:57:26 CST 2015 FreeBSD 10.1-RELEASE-p3

    and after that OpenVPN Remote access stopped working. Maybe this excerpt from the log file can help identifying the problem:

    Jan 12 09:55:09 openvpn: user 'XX' could not authenticate.
    Jan 12 09:55:09 openvpn[18274]: XXX.XXX.XXX.XXX:59601 WARNING: Failed running command (–auth-user-pass-verify): external program exited with error status: 1
    Jan 12 09:55:09 openvpn[18274]: XXX.XXX.XXX.XXX:59601 TLS Auth Error: Auth Username/Password verification failed for peer
    Jan 12 09:55:09 openvpn[18274]: XXX.XXX.XXX.XXX:59601 [cl] Peer Connection Initiated with [AF_INET]XXX.XXX.XXX.XXX:59601

    To be sure I also resetted the passwork for user XX, but that had no effect.



  • You might have the build where there was a testing password accidentally in the code.
    Try the very latest build. The debug code was removed 19 hours ago, as at time of my posting.



  • For this issue to be fixed wait for a snapshot of later today.
    The issue has been fixed just now and the status is on #4177
