OpenVPN Route gateway is ambiguous

Post by DasFox » Fri Apr 22, 2011 1:20 am

I just noticed this when I started OpenVPN

Thu Apr 21 15:11:37 2011 Warning: route gateway is ambiguous: 192.168.1.1 (2 matches)

What does this mean, and is this a routing issue on the client side or server side?


THANKS

it's an ambiguity on the side where the log message appears; it could be related to the fact that your local GW is 192.168.1.1 and the server pushes out a new gateway of 192.168.1.1 as well. Most likely your routing table looks a bit funny on the side where you're starting openvpn.

So no worries then, just something that happens from time to time?
