openvpn process started and then immediately exited

Post by rachel@phoneburner.com » Fri Oct 04, 2019 2:50 pm

Hello, I am using OpenVPN on Windows 10.

If I access the connection like this, I often get the following error: openvpn process started and then immediately exited

Sometimes it'll work for a few days, and then stop working, and will work again if I restart my computer.

However, if I use the "Connect" option and enter my username and password, it works every time.

Any help would be appreciated.

You are using Openvpn-Connect 2.6.0.100, please use the open source openvpn-GUI.exe
