Hi, got this error, I am new to OpenVPN and am setting up an access server on google cloud. I can't find anything that helps in manuals or internet so I thought I would ask the community!

Client is Debian GNU/Linux 9 \n \l
The server is Access Server on Google cloud

OpenVPN has been downloaded from the repository mentioned on OpenVPN site. and is
OpenVPN 2.4.9 x86_64-pc-linux-gnu [SSL (OpenSSL)] [LZO] [LZ4] [EPOLL] [PKCS11] [MH/PKTINFO] [AEAD] built on Oct 30 2019
Downloaded client.ovpn from access server and followed instructions to set up on Linux.
triggering connection with
openvpn --config client.ovpn --auth-user-pass
getting
Options error: Unrecognized option or missing or extra parameter(s) in client.ovpn:33: setenv (2.4.9)

A windows client I setup connects Fine. So I think it must be the client connection file.
Can anyone point me in the right direction?? Please.

Thanks for the reply Tincan,
Got a ticket running just thought I would check if anyone else had seen the problem. Under pressure to report back as to the suitability of the access server to our requirements.
