0004349: active directory authentication with openvpn doesn't work
When try to configure active directory authentication with openvpn doesn't work.
I use the same configuration on 2.4 device and it works.I noticed that on /var/efw/openvpn/settings file in 2.5 when restart openvpn the line AUTH_TYPE=psk is missing.

I also have seen this and it's impossible to authenticate via GUI.

Fixed with efw-vpn 2.9.4 and openvpn-auth 2.9.2.

After the upgrade, you can check the active directory authentication with the
following command:
openvpn-auth -i

The command asks for an username and password and checks if they are valid, e.g.:
openvpn-auth -i
Username: andreax
2012-08-10 14:31:56,416 - openvpn-auth[5046] - INFO - User 'andreax' authenticated by module 'ldap'.

Note that it's correct that the line AUTH_TYPE=psk is not present in /var/efw/openvpn/settings because psk is the default value for AUTH_TYPE.
