Ubuntu20.04 OpenVPN stuck connecting

Post by unsel » Tue Jan 18, 2022 3:51 am

Openvpn gets stuck at connecting state while trying to connect from my Ubuntu20.04 machine. Here are some info about the problem:

[*] I was able to connect without problems until yesterday.
[*] I've been using the syntax "openvpn3 session-start --config {{config_path}}" and it was printing the connect information after it connects but now it is stuck at connecting after I enter my username and password.
[*] I tried connecting from my Windows and iPhone and they both work but I can't connect from my Ubuntu20.04 machine.
[*] I tried using openvpn2 but it didn't work either
[*] I did reset iptables rules, and checked firewall rules too but these were not the problem

Here is the syslog:
{tag:4790543672378716044} Client INFO: Connecting
{tag:17760660744762955260} Network Configuration INFO: Socket protect called for socket 8, remote: '97.92.251.245', tun: 'tun0', ipv6: no
{tag:4790543672378716044} Client INFO: Connecting
{tag:17760660744762955260} Network Configuration INFO: Socket protect called for socket 8, remote: '97.92.251.245', tun: 'tun0', ipv6: no

What could be causing this?
