Waiting for server response after upgrading Tunnelblick

Post by password » Sun Jul 28, 2019 2:50 pm

Hello there

I am your newest member and I must admit I am here looking for some support :)

At the moment I cannot connect to my server, because the client (Tunnelblick) sticks to waiting for server response.

Well, I upgraded Tunnelblick on my Mac OS to version v2.4.7 and OpenSSL v1.0.2r. I started to get warnings about "comp lzo" being deprecated. I understand that shouldn't cause an issue, but mentioning anyway. While we are on that topic, it is worth mentioning that I removed the `comp lzo` piece from the configuration of both client and server. Is this something that should be replaced with something else?

I didn't really see anything in logs on either side. I also upgraded the server side too. I ran `sudo apt-get update` and `sudo apt-get upgrade`. By the way, this is also running on a Raspberry Pi with Raspbian Jessie installed.

I'm not sure what else to try.

Please see the configuration of my server below.. if anybody could help that would be super awesome.

Many thanks

Code: Select all

dev tun
proto udp
port 1194
ca /etc/openvpn/easy-rsa/keys/ca.crt
cert /etc/openvpn/easy-rsa/keys/server.crt
key /etc/openvpn/easy-rsa/keys/server.key
dh /etc/openvpn/easy-rsa/keys/dh1024.pem
server 10.8.0.0 255.255.255.0
push "redirect-gateway def1 bypass-dhcp"
push "dhcp-option DNS 8.8.8.8"
log-append /var/log/openvpn
persist-key
persist-tun
user nobody
group nogroup
status /var/log/openvpn-status.log
verb 3
client-to-client
<comp lzo was here but removed>

If you need compression then see --compress in the manual.

If the server log last line is "Initialization complete" then your client cannot reach your server. Check your network etc.
