#10427 closed defect (worksforme)

Unrecognized [option 'remote-cert-tls' 'server'] crashes luci openvpn app

Reported by: wuchi@… Owned by:
Priority: normal Milestone: Backfire 10.03.1
Component: luci Version: Backfire 10.03
Keywords: remote-cert-tls openvpn luci Cc:


When using OpenVPN and set it up as a client, you might want to harden up security a bit by adding the option 'remote-cert-tls' 'server' to ensure the certificate is a server-only certificate, see for more info.

However, adding such an option to /etc/config/openvpn and calling cgi-bin/luci/[foo..]/services/openvpn refuses to load and throws an error (attached), which might inidcate this option is not parsed correctly or does not exist.

Options with hyphens are invalid uci syntax, use underscores. It is neither a LuCI nor an OpenWrt bug.
