OpenVPN Server Version
I got OpenVPN server working perfectly with my Radius server and have it locked down and all. All the certs are working nicely and everything works nice and pretty.
I am currently on pfsense 2.2.6 64-Bit and was wondering if I can use a newer openVPN version for the client install on computers?
Also, what version of openVPN does pfsense 2.2.6 use, I believe it to be openVPN 2.3.8
And is it possible to update the openVPN version to the latest version ?
Does the new version of openVPN(version 2.3.10) offer any better security ?
you can use the current version on your clients without any issues. I connect with 2.3.10 from windows machines all the time to my pfsense.
2.2.6 is using
[2.2.6-RELEASE][root@pfSense.local.lan]/root: openvpn –version
OpenVPN 2.3.8 amd64-portbld-freebsd10.1 [SSL (OpenSSL)] [LZO] [MH] [IPv6] built on Aug 21 2015
library versions: OpenSSL 1.0.1l-freebsd 15 Jan 2015, LZO 2.09
As to security differences between 2.3.8 and 2.3.10 – pretty sure if there was any sort of significant issue that pfsense team would of updated it.. More than likely the 2.3 version of pfsense is using 2.3.10
Thank You very much for the info.
