Is there a forum subject for documentation?

Post by tr.martin » Tue Jan 26, 2016 9:26 pm

I looked all over the forum but I couldn't find a forum subject specifically dedicated to documentation.

I'm trying to find some clarification on the 'pull' directive.
The description for 'pull' says it implied with the client directive and not necessary if client is declared, then farther down in the 'push' description it implies 'pull' must be explicitly declared?

If anyone could provide some clarification that would be helpful..

There is no Forum specifically to discuss documentation.

To clarify the openvpn directives client, pull and push:

--pull (Client only):
  • Instructs the client to request and accept --pushed options from the server.
    Also, over-rides other pre-requisites in advance of connecting to a server.
--client (Client only):
  • Implies (includes) --pull and --tls-client
--push "options" (Server only):
  • Configures the options which the server will --push to the client (upon --pull request)
