OpenVPN Fatal Error
Jharris1984 last edited by
I've recently setup my pfsense box and followed the PIA PfSense instructions (https://www.privateinternetaccess.com/forum/discussion/18111/openvpn-step-by-step-setup-for-pfsense-firewall-router-with-video) found here to a t but I'm getting a fatal error when i start up the VPN. When I go out to the wild and do the ipleak and dns test I'm still protected and when I go to PIA's homepage it's not showing my actual IP. Just wanted to see if someone would look at my screenshot and see if they can explain why it's failing.
Thanks in advance.

The error message "Cannot open TUN/TAP dev dev/tun1:Device busy" points to a previous instance of OpenVPN already running.
This can happen if you're playing with your OpenVPN settings, trying to get things "right" and restarting the OpenVPN client and/or server.
Sometimes the previous instance doesn't exit cleanly and can hang around for a while.
I would try a full reboot of the box to make sure you have a clean start and see what your logs look like.
