Hello. I have problem with R7800, Voxel FW (.72) and Mullvad OpenVPN

.ovpn file
Code:
client
dev tun
proto udp

remote fi.mullvad.net 1196

cipher AES-256-CBC
resolv-retry infinite
nobind
persist-key
persist-tun
verb 3
remote-cert-tls server
ping 10
ping-restart 60
sndbuf 524288
rcvbuf 524288

auth-user-pass mullvad_userpass.txt
ca mullvad_ca.crt

service mullvadopenvpn
block-outside-dns

tls-cipher TLS-DHE-RSA-WITH-AES-256-GCM-SHA384:TLS-DHE-RSA-WITH-AES-256-CBC-SHA
This doesn't work and log said:

Code:
Options error: Unrecognized option or missing or extra parameter(s) in /tmp/openvpn/ovpnclient.ovpn:22: service (2.4.7)
Use --help for more information.
Error: OpenVPN client start failed.
I found that the exactly problem is those 2 lines:


Code:
service mullvadopenvpn
block-outside-dns
If I remove those, it works. But the 1000 dollar question is, why? Now mullvad own test say that my DNS is leaking. Do I just keep dnscrypt v2 on and forgot that warning?

This worked like a charm. I still hope Wireguard add to Voxel FW.

Hello,
I have exactly the same problem with Mullvad VPN. I have tried to change the config like you did, sadly without success.
I would be really grateful for help.
