Remote GW variable

Post by SimWhite » Wed Feb 14, 2018 11:01 am

Hi all. I try to to make some route paths with additional scripts and I have a problem.

From the manual of OpenVPN:

Code: Select all

--up cmd
Run command cmd after successful TUN/TAP device open (pre --user UID change).

For --dev tun execute as:
cmd tun_dev tun_mtu link_mtu ifconfig_local_ip ifconfig_remote_ip [ init | restart ]

For --dev tap execute as:
cmd tap_dev tap_mtu link_mtu ifconfig_local_ip ifconfig_netmask [ init | restart ]
I use tun in my client configuration but I get ifconfig_netmask instead of ifconfig_remote_ip as $5 environmental variable.

Code: Select all

/sbin/ip addr add dev tun11 broadcast
/etc/openvpn/ tun11 1500 1555 init
Why I didn't get remote GW address and how can I get it?

You are using --topology subnet .. see --topology in the manual.
