#8019 new enhancement

Display Raw OpenVPN Options in Luci OpenVPN Advanced Interface

Component: luci Version: Trunk

First I would like to thank all OpenWRT developers for a great product!

I would like to propose a change to the Luci configuration interface for OpenVPN. It would be nice if the Advanced OpenVPN settings showed the actual OpenVPN options in the drop-down menus.

For example instead of the menu saying "Keep tun/tap device open on restart" it would be nice if it simply said "persist_tun". It would also be ok to say "Keep tun/tap device open on restart (persist_tun)".

The current interface requires me to check the contents of /etc/config/openvpn to ensure that the options I have selected will have the desired effect.

I agree. I have spent considerable time trying to figure out how to simply add "tls-server" and "tls-client" options to my openvpn setup. I can not find these options anywhere in luci-app-openvpn.

Have to agree with this - some level of similarity is important to maintain currency with what the config files call the options.
