OpenVPN client expires every 24h and does not restart



  • Team,

    I am using OpenVPN client on pfSense to connect to an OpenVPN access server. the tunnel works fine but every 24hours it expires and does not restart automatically. I need to manually restart the service to have the tunnel connect again. Is there something wrong with the below configuration? what am i missing? I am using pfSense 2.2.5 in AWS

    dev ovpnc1
    verb 6
    dev-type tun
    tun-ipv6
    dev-node /dev/tun1
    writepid /var/run/openvpn_client1.pid
    #user nobody
    #group nobody
    script-security 3
    daemon
    keepalive 10 60

    proto tcp-client
    cipher BF-CBC

    management /var/etc/openvpn/client1.sock unix
    remote myopenvpnserver.com 443
    auth-user-pass /var/etc/openvpn/client1.up
    ca /var/etc/openvpn/client1.ca
    cert /var/etc/openvpn/client1.cert
    key /var/etc/openvpn/client1.key
    tls-auth /var/etc/openvpn/client1.tls-auth 1
    comp-lzo adaptive
    passtos

    Here is the error message i get after 24 hours
    openvpn[16475]: AUTH: Received control message: AUTH_FAILED,SESSION: Your session has expired, please reauthenticate
