  • Hi Nick and Dave.

    I'm happy to help test as I use OpenVPN nearly daily.

  • Hi Dave,

    Yes the old options still work.

    I suspect we're still running an older version of OpenVPN so it should be OK for now.

    My concern is that VPN is an important package and with so many security issues all over the place, it will likely need to be updated soon. That could lead to some problems with the server getting updated and all the clients being temporarily unable to connect.

    So that is why I asked how we should manage this going forward.

  • Some options in the automatic config will be deprecated in v2.4 and removed in 2.5

    Hi.
    I updated Tunnelblick yesterday and got a notice that the following options from the OpenVPN configuration are deprecated in v2.4 and will be removed in v2.5.
    Unfortunately, the new options that I tried to replace the outdated options don't work and Tunnelblick won't connect and crashes.
    The options that are being deprecated and removed are "comp-lzo" and "ns-cert-type server".
    They are being replace by "compress lzo" and "remote-cert-tls server"
    How should we be managing this going forward?

    Out of curiosity, could the following from my logs give any indication of the problem.

    I'm assuming that these log entries ended up due to the upgrade process. ???



    The timing coincides with the upgrade process on my box.

    Off-topic, but interesting to me and maybe other. :)

    Out of interest what app are you running on Android to sync with ClearOS?

    I'm considering switching to Android, and I have Android Phone from the company I work for.


    @Marcel

    There are many ways to achieve the result but I use "FolderSync Pro". Company producing the app is called Tacit [www.tacit.dk/foldersync]. I purchased the app from the Google Play Store but there is a free version to test.

    I use Unison on the Mac to sync files to my COS and the mobile Android devices to sync with the COS. Please note that these are scheduled sync and not automatic.

    If you have any questions on how I make it all work, send me a PM.

    Thanks everyone for providing a fix!

    I've also made the smb.conf change to and my Android devices and apps can now connect and sync with the COS server.

    FYI
    I had the server running one of the NAS apps from the Marketplace but since it didn't consistently update the interface for added/removed content, I just removed it. It was too frustrating to try to figure out why some content was available and other content not.

    So in theory, I don't have a NAS running anymore but some of the config info must still be in the smb.conf file??

    I noticed this problem today when I tried to sync some files from my Android (v4.1) tablet to the COS server. SMB isn't connecting within some apps (Total Commander & Folder Sync) but VLC does connect for some reason. Our Macs running OSX 10.11 through 10.12 can connect OK. We don't have any windows boxes (expect in VMs) so can't comment on those.

    Not sure if this helps in some way to narrow down the issue and repeatability.

    Thanks for posting the solution. I'll downgrade the files as everything worked fine prior to this mornings update.

    Thanks for your quick solution on this Nick. As always you are ahead of the curve!

    Samba/Flexshares are broken and the 20 packages need to be downgraded. I have a fix which I am hosting on my server but limited bandwidth to support it. Please see this post.

    I've pinged Dave a message but he may not be around yet.

    [edit]
    Ata Asgari has kindly mirrored the files with a much faster link and a gzipped package for ease. I suggest you use his links from this post.

    Nuke replied to a discussion, Attack Detector/fail2ban stopped??

    Nick,

    I've continued to check this out and haven't been able to figure anything more until today.

    I noticed in the /etc/clearos/firewall.d/local there is a line and nothing else.

    Also there is a /etc/clearos/firewall.d/90-attack-detector file with a bunch of code.

    Is it possible that the 90-attack-detector has started fail2ban and local tries to start fail2ban causing it to hang?

    Thanks again for your help and patience as I try to figure this out.
