OpenVPN Disconnects every 5-10 minutes



  • Hi Guys,

    Love your forum, love this product!

    But sadly we ran in a problem with it.

    Problem: Openvpn Disconnects every 6 minutes (give or take a minute) and than connects back. Our customer uses it for external connections to a internal RDP Server (which is behind the firewall).

    Setup:  2.2.3-RELEASE  (amd64)  with 5 nic's
    WAN: Behind a modem 192.168.200.1 (pfsense had 192.168.200.2)
    LAN1: 10.220.14.81 (this is the main lan adapter - the RDS Server is on  this network - this is the network the vpn must go to)
    LAN2: 192.168.2.1 (little smal network for the camera's - not so important)
    LAN3: 10.0.0.1 (this is the old network where the old server is connected to - not important at all!!!)
    LAN4: 10.222.14.81 (the wifi guest network - is the same adapter as LAN1 but on another VLAN - which connects to a switch - which connects to the Cisco AP with multiple SSID - 1 for the guest - 1 for the internal wifi)

    We have firewall rules to protect the internal lan from the other lans.

    I created aliases to help me with this:
    Alias1: networks: 10.220.14.0/24 - 10.0.0.0/24 - 10.222.14.0/24 - 10.221.14.0/24
    Alias2: networks: 10.220.14.0/24 - 10.0.0.0/24 - 192.168.2.0/24 - 10.221.14.0/24

    So now the rules:
    On LAN2:
    block    IPv4 *  CAMERA net  *  Alias1 *  *  none
    allow    IPv4 *  CAMERA net  *  *        *  *  none
    allow    IPv4 *  CAMERA net  *  CAMERA net  *  *  none

    On LAN3:
    allow    IPv4 *  LEGACYDFD net  *  LEGACYDFD net  *  *  none

    On LAN4:
    block    IPv4 *  GUESTWIFI net  *  Alias2 *  *  none     
    allow    IPv4 *  GUESTWIFI net  *  *  *  *  none

    Back to the problem, I already disabled gateway monitoring as described: https://208.123.73.68/index.php?topic=45725.0
    I already enabled bypass firewall rules for traffic on same interface as described: http://community.spiceworks.com/topic/432543-pfsense-blocking-subnet-traffic

    But I ran out of options. The VPN config is exactly the same as any other client we have, if u know a fast way to copy things, then explain it to me and I will paste the config. But in fact its really just following the wizard. (it has network 10.221.14.0/24)

    Could it be that you should shorten the lease time of this connection or that this connection is not
    interrupted after xxx minutes of being idle?

    You mean the keep alive command???

    To be honest, it is our first time that so much users, use the VPN. Normally it is 2-3 users, now it are 5-15 users who randomly logon to the VPN.



  • now it are 5-15 users who randomly logon to the VPN.

    Perhaps the hardware is not capable of more users?



  • It's a new server, so it should be capable of doing that. If I look at the stats, cpu usage is 1-10% and memory is 23% so it is not in full load :-)

    Do you need more information?



  • I checked it again today and found this:
    Jul 30 09:30:58 php-fpm[77172]: /rc.openvpn: OpenVPN: One or more OpenVPN tunnel endpoints may have changed its IP. Reloading endpoints that may use WANGW.

    I guess it started here, but don't know what it means?



  • Jul 30 09:30:58    php-fpm[77172]: /rc.openvpn: OpenVPN: One or more OpenVPN tunnel endpoints may have changed its IP. Reloading endpoints that may use WANGW.
    

    I think that this VPN endpoints got a new IP address by or from their ISPs!
    They have dynamic IPs and no static (fixed) ones or a DynDNS account!  :-\

    I guess it started here, but don't know what it means?

    For setting up VPNs you should be sure that both endpoints of a VPN connection are
    sorted with static IP addresses or DynDNS accounts. If this will be so called road worrier
    set ups or the VPN endpoints will be mobile clients this might be not worse and is running
    smooth but if the VPN endpoints are also pfSense firewalls or VPN Servers this will be then
    a problem.  :o

    The pfsense (OpenVPN Server) is connected to a modem which has a static WAN IP.

    The clients are indeed laptops/desktops with the OpenVPN application with a dynamic ip. But I can't imagine they change ip every 5 minutes :).

    Yesterday I got sick of it and rebooted the pfsense. After this the VPNclients stayed connected for over an hour (maybe 2). But now it's back to reconnecting like every 5 minutes :(.



  • But now it's back to reconnecting like every 5 minutes

    You can have a closer look to the OpenVPN settings and search the lease time for the
    given internal IP, after connecting to the OpenVPN server. But not on the client side.

  • Okay, did some more testing.

    Created a new OpenVPN server, changed it to TCP port 1195.

    Looks like a breakthrough, now it is connected for almost 3 hours without a disconnect.

    It doesn't make sense though…

    I'll keep you posted



  • After hours of testing it looks solved.

    We are slowly going to update the clients their vpn files to the new port.

    Can someone tell me this is even possible? Is this solution even recommended?



  • Well using a port other than the default 1194 is definitely possible and if it solves your problem, I'd say it's advisable…

    I often use ports other than 1194 for OpenVPN if only to avoid conflicts/blocking/port spying/etc.

    Just a guess on my part but your scenario could easily involve ISP "managing" OpenVPN traffic or possibly some DOS/malware/spying trying out your OpenVPN port.

    A possibility yes. But not sure.

    I've putted the 2 mac clients on another server, maybe it's them (don't have a lot of experience with MAC clients)

    But it still works like a train, so client is happy and we are happy ;-) !

    Thanks all!
