Closed, ResolvedPublicBUG


i tried today to upgrade from 1.3-rolling-202010241529 to 1.3-rolling-202011030217... After the reload i found out that the openVPN configuration was missing. when i tried to reconfigure it i got the message below:
Traceback (most recent call last):

Thanks for reporting.

now it works.
there seems to be another problem, the communication only works point to point, no routed traffic arrives on the opposite side.

Can you please check if this used to work in older VyOS versions, e.g. or share your config and a network diagram.

Until version 1.3-rolling-202010280217 it still worked.
I have not changed the configuration...

Perfect! Then please share your full OpenVPN config so the issue can be recreated and fixed properly.
