OpenVPN Options error: you cannot use --verify-x509-name with --compat-names or --no-name-remapping
Closed, ResolvedPublicBUG


In VyOS 1.3 the --compat-names was added due to T1512, however this breaks strict openvpn server validation checks such as --verify-x509-name.

It would be nice if openvpn did not use deprecated settings at all.

We could make compat-names a configurable option that defaults to disabled, e.g. "set interfaces openvpn vtunX tls compat-names {no-remapping}"
