Any PIA users willing to test v2? This is a one-way upgrade, to go back to stable will need a reinstall. Post if interested!

very weird. Can you upload and pm a copy of your syslog so i can take a look at anything that might have tripped it? next time it happens, can you run:
Code:
ls -la /tmp/menuTree.js
so we can check when it was last modified please?

OK - so menu not present today. Will send syslog via PM as discussed. Here's the command log:

[email protected]:/tmp/home/root# ls -la /tmp/menuTree.js
ls: /tmp/menuTree.js: No such file or directory
[email protected]:/tmp/home/root# nvpnmgr startup
nvpnmgr: Sleeping for 30s before running startup routine
nvpnmgr: Mounting nvpnmgr WebUI page as user1.asp
[email protected]:/tmp/home/root# ls -la /tmp/menuTree.js
-rw-rw-r-- 1 xxxxx root 21594 Jul 16 12:13 /tmp/menuTree.js

Menu tab now present.

Hi Jack Yaz

Yust have to congratulate you on an awesome set of tools. Discovered nvpnmgr, Yazfi and the others 2 days ago, absolutely crazy useful!

Everything working 100% with absolutely no issues.

Recently installed NordVPN Manager. Really neat tool, but I can't seem to get the VPN to start. When I select On for Service State under the VPN Client tab, the page refreshes but cycles back to Off. System Log shows the following error:
ovpn-client1[7407]: Options error: You must define CA file (--ca) or CA path (--capath)

Do I need to configure something other than the user/pw to connect?

Running Merlin 384.18 on RTAC68U with Skynet, Diversion, JRQoS, and NordVPNManager.

Thanks!

Did you manually change any of the settings for the vpn client? Can you send a screenshot (blank out username)

Ok, it sounds like the certificate might not have been extracted. What do you see for:
Code:
ls -la /jffs/openvpn
drwx------ 2 username root 0 Jul 18 09:51 .
drwxr-xr-x 11 username root 0 Jul 18 11:32

switched router admin name with 'username' for post

That's weird, the ca and key files aren't there

Which server are you using? If you "search" for a new one do the files get populated?

I was using the Los Angeles server for two VPNs managed by NordVPNManager. I removed the second VPN and it connected now. Perhaps it was because two clients were configured for same geographical area?

Are there known speed issues associated with using RTAC68U OpenVPN?
When I send my traffic through the NordVPN router connection, I'm getting around 15Mbps/10Mbps. When I send my traffic through the OpenVPN client on my computer, I'm getting around 136Mbps/10Mbps.

Ensured same servers were being used for both VPN connection and Speedtest.net download.

Found a separate thread covering this that notes that the problem appears to be a hardware limitation of the RTAC68U. Link below for anyone interested.

v2.0.0 is now available
Changelog:
Code:
NEW: Rename from nvpnmgr to vpnmgr as we intend to support various VPN providers
NEW: Add support for PIA VPNs (Private Internet Access)

While every effort has been made to test upgrading, I would be naive to assume I've caught everything. Please post here if you run into any problems!

NordVPN and PIA don't support compression (at least, importing the vpn files sets it to None/Disabled)
