Summary0002682: global OpenVPN DCHP Options not pushed when using X509 without having accounts
DescriptionPush domain, Push these nameservers options doesn't work.
Would be nice to also have push "dhcp-option WINS a.b.c.d".

Workaround with adding
push "dhcp-option DNS a.b.c.d"
push "dhcp-option DNS a.b.c.d"
push "dhcp-option WINS a.b.c.d"
push "dhcp-option DOMAIN domain.tld"

Is that happening with windows clients?

Yes. I only have Windows Clients here. Both XP and Windows7.

these push values are confgurable for each user, therefore you will not find them within the global openvpn config file.

can you please check if you have the correct values in


the template for the user files is /var/openvpn/user.tmpl

WINS is not configurable right now, but DNS and DOMAIN should be pushed

We use only X.509 certificates for OpenVPN, so there are no users on the firewall itself. "Global push options" don't apply in this case?

Same here, migrating a fw + openvpn server to Endian.

Using X.509 (ca.crt, vpnserver.crt, vpnserver.key) and ended up messing with /etc/openvpn/openvpn.conf.tmpl

i understand

well, then it does not set it in the global openvpn configuration.
those values will only be set within the user's configuration.
so those global values really will not be taken in consideration right now with x509 authentication

thank you for bringing this to our attention

you can try to create an account called "DEFAULT", which then will be used as default configuration for those connectinos.
that should work

actually it is asking for a password, but as long as you don't use 2-factor auth it should not be used.

is this bug still existent? I got nearly the same behaviour with the EFW 2.4.1.
