AEAD Decrypt error: cipher final failed

Post by dnguyen76 » Sun Jan 13, 2019 8:02 am

I am running an OpenVPN 2.4.0 network with TCP protocol and 443 port to mimic https stream (server software installation in a Raspberry pi3 has been done using pivpn )

After connection, I have random "AEAD Decrypt error: cipher final failed" message every 5 ti 10 minutes when receiving from Raspbian openvpn client thru a firewall . After each software reset the Raspbian client succeed to reconnect but again 5 to 10 minutes later another "AEAD Decrypt error: cipher final failed" .


( The openvpn server is running in a Raspberry 3 and working well with others clients ( Windows, Android) but another network without firewall in this case)

Is anybody an idea how to correct these random "AEAD Decrypt error: cipher final failed" ? :)
