Inactivity timeout (--ping-restart), restarting

Post by alenaranjo » Tue Mar 02, 2021 12:50 am

Hi, I have a problem and maybe someone has the solution. The connection is terminated after a few minutes and reconnects. I send the configuration and the log.

Client config

dev tun
cipher AES-256-CBC
auth SHA1
resolv-retry infinite
remote 1195 udp4
ca borderone-UDP4-1195-ca.crt
tls-auth borderone-UDP4-1195-tls.key 1
remote-cert-tls server


Code: Select all

2021-03-01 20:55:35 DEPRECATED OPTION: ncp-disable. Disabling cipher negotiation is a deprecated debug feature that will be removed in OpenVPN 2.6
2021-03-01 20:55:35 DEPRECATED OPTION: --cipher set to 'AES-256-CBC' but missing in --data-ciphers (AES-256-GCM:AES-128-GCM). Future OpenVPN version will ignore --cipher for cipher negotiations. Add 'AES-256-CBC' to --data-ciphers or change --cipher 'AES-256-CBC' to --data-ciphers-fallback 'AES-256-CBC' to silence this warning.
