Thanks to Thomas Wouters for the upgraded SRPM

openvpn configuration file needs to be changed:

script-security 3

need to be added in configuration templates of efw-vpn and efw-vpnclient
2008-09-10 09:32   
upgrade to 2.1_rc10, that should fix the execv() issues on spawning a script.
adding script-security is still needed!

This release fixes a serious (though not security-related) bug in the
SSL/TLS negotiation over UDP that can cause SSL/TLS handshake failures.
  The bug was introduced in 2.1_rc9.

All users of OpenVPN 2.1_rc9 and rc10 are urged to upgrade.

Is there any instruction on how to update the OpenVPN to 2.1rc11 or even rc13? The Endian 2.2rc3 firewall is still using OpenVPN 2.1rc7. There seem to be some bugs fixed from rc7 to rc10 or newer. I really want to upgrade it.

Thank you.

As long as they (openvpn team) continue to release rc versions i would not upgrade. From rc7 to rc8 they changed behaviour which needs us to change the configuration template. I would wait until it gets stable enough, then we will change those configuration parameters.
