OpenVPN cannot start automatically after a reboot


#1

I have a GL-MT300N-V2, and every time I reboot or switch off my minirouter OpenVPN can’t start, I need to enter settings and click “apply” to start it.
These are some errors I can find:

Can someone help me please?


#2

Did you configure the switch function to trigger OpenVPN?


#3

Seems there is a ping exit option in the ovpn and it exit because of this.

Can you please post the content of your CyberGhost ovpn? Their ovpn need to be generated from user portal.

You can remove your credentials


#4

Do you mean the “bring up on boot” option? Yes already done… OpenVPN try to start but find an issue and stop…


#5

This is the content of my cyberghost ovpn file:

client

dev tun
proto udp
auth-user-pass

resolv-retry infinite
redirect-gateway def1
persist-key
persist-tun
nobind
cipher AES-256-CBC
auth SHA256
ping 5

ca ca.crt

cert client.crt

key client.key


#6

Remove the following command and reupload the file. You can also edit directly on the router

ping-exit 60

It works! Thank you very much! Problem solved :smile:
