Connection reset, restarting [0]

Post by Ross » Tue May 04, 2021 12:38 pm

Hi,

I am running

Code: Select all

OpenVPN 2.4.7 x86_64-pc-linux-gnu [SSL (OpenSSL)] [LZO] [LZ4] [EPOLL] [PKCS11] [MH/PKTINFO] [AEAD] built on Feb 20 2019
library versions: OpenSSL 1.1.1d  10 Sep 2019, LZO 2.1
on Debian and can successfully connect to an OpenVPN Gateway. So therefore I know the client does work. If I configure a new gateway and attempt to connect I get a "Connection reset, restarting [0]" cycling and the client backs off. There are no "ERROR" in the log, even if I turn verb up to 11.

What else can I try to debug what is going on? I have even deployed the certs from the working gateway to the new gateway and the same problem in the logs
