Hi Voxel

I am having an issue with OpenVPN and version

Upgraded from V 60HF (Kamoj addon V5.5b21) to V61 & Kamoj addon V5.5b24 and was unable to connect VPN (Surfshark) –(I also tried with another VPN provider in case it was something to do with Surfshark config). Kamoj Router info showed:

OpenVPN Clients Available: (7) Milan-, us-boston.prod.surfshark.comsurfshark_openvpn_udp.ovpn, London-, Rome- + 3 more

OpenVPN Client Status: Not started tun21. No .ovpn configuration found

After trying various things (including a complete clean reinstall) everything works OK with & Kamoj V5.5b21 & V5.5b24.

It seems that the upgrade of SSL may be the cause (my guess so may well be wrong)

Extracts from the V60 (Kamoj b24) session log show:

2022-06-12 15:04:05 OpenSSL: error:1012606B:lib(16):func(294):reason(107)

2022-06-12 15:04:05 OpenSSL: error:100AF010:lib(16):func(175):reason(16)

2022-06-12 15:04:05 OpenSSL: error:141A413A:lib(20):func(420):reason(314)

2022-06-12 15:04:05 TLS_ERROR: BIO read tls_read_plaintext error

2022-06-12 15:04:05 TLS Error: TLS object -> incoming plaintext read error

2022-06-12 15:04:05 TLS Error: TLS handshake failed

2022-06-12 15:04:05 SIGUSR1[soft,tls-error] received, process restarting

2022-06-12 15:04:05 Restart pause, 5 second(s)

(full session log attached. Can send you a comparison V60 Kamoj b24 session log if you need it)

Have reverted to V1.04.60HF with Kamoj addon V5.5b24 for now as I do not have the knowledge to take it any further

Thanks for all your work
