By default in –dev tap mode, OpenVPN will take the normally unused first address in the subnet. MTU problems often manifest themselves as connections which hang during periods of active usage. This has certain consequences, namely that using a password-protected private key will fail unless the –askpass option is used to tell OpenVPN to ask for the pass phrase this requirement is new in 2. All options are modeled after their IPv4 counterparts, so more detailed explanations given there apply here as well except for –topology , which has no effect on IPv6. This directory can be used as a dictionary by the proxy receiver to determine the origin of the connection. This goes further than –user and –chroot in that those two, while being great security features, unfortunately do not protect against privilege escalation by exploitation of a vulnerable system call.

This is purely implemented for compatibility reasons when using older plug-ins or scripts which does not handle the new formatting or UTF-8 characters. A mixed-case fieldname or one having the ext: You can control which network traffic passes between the hosts a over the VPN or b independently of the VPN, by choosing whether to use a the VPN endpoint address or b the public internet address, to access the remote host. Note that this option only works with PolarSSL versions greater than 1.


If specified, OpenVPN will bind to this address only. First, make sure the client-side config file enables selective compression by having at least one –comp-lzo directive, such as –comp-lzo no.

In this context, the last command line parameter passed to the script will be init. Cannot be used together with –nobind option. If that also fails, then try connecting through an HTTP proxy at Assuming you can ping across the tunnel, the next step is to route a real subnet over the secure tunnel.

This setting can be used to ensure that certain cipher suites are used or not used for the TLS connection. The delay will give the DHCP handshake time to complete before routes are added. It is only meant as a last resort when path MTU discovery is broken.

This option is designed to be useful in scenarios where DHCP is used to set tap adapter addresses. Called with the same parameters and environmental variables as the –up option above.

Only set for TLS connections. The script should examine the username and password, returning a success exit code 0 if the client’s authentication request is to be accepted, or a failure code 1 to reject the client.


The server config would be helpful to see as well. This option is automatically used by the Windows explorer when OpenVPN is run on a configuration file using the right-click explorer menu.

Only applied to TAP devices. The optional nogw flag advanced indicates that gateway information should not be pushed to the client. Care must tn taken by any user-defined scripts to avoid creating a security vulnerability in the way that these strings are handled. Typically, cmd will run a script to add routes to the tunnel.

Also see –tls-version-max below, for information on compatibility. The id can be gotten by the standalone –show-pkcsids option.

Client Mode Use client mode when connecting to an OpenVPN server which has –server, –server-bridge, or –mode server in it’s configuration. When this option is used, the –verify-xname option will match against the chosen fieldname instead of the Common Name. This new format enables proper witn for UTF-8 characters in the usernames, X.
