HELP!!!! OpenVPN not working

Post by Univrsl » Sun May 20, 2018 2:26 pm

Hi Ladies & Gents,

Brand new to OpenVPN, but i'm getting some problems with getting it to connect. I'm using a Netgear NightHawk R7500, and have followed the guide I've been given. Unfortunately after many attempts of trying to connect I get the following log towards to the end:

Sun May 20 15:13:52 2018 us=202625 MANAGEMENT: TCP Socket listening on [AF_INET]127.0.0.1:25340
Sun May 20 15:13:52 2018 us=202625 Need hold release from management interface, waiting...

Sun May 20 15:13:52 2018 us=874460 Exiting due to fatal error

If anyone can help me it would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,
