I am using the following openvpn config:
port 1194 proto udp dev tun ca keys/ca.crt cert keys/openvpn-server.crt key keys/openvpn-server.key dh keys/dh1024.pem crl-verify keys/crl.pem client-config-dir /etc/openvpn/ccd server 172.29.3.0 255.255.255.0 ifconfig-pool-persist ipp.txt keepalive 10 60 persist-key persist-tun client-to-client status openvpn-status.log verb 4 push "route 188.8.131.52 255.255.252.0"
In the /etc/openvpn/ccd directory I have some files that contain
ipconfig-push directives like so:
ifconfig-push 172.29.3.74 172.29.3.1
I have something like this in my openvpn-status.log:
OpenVPN CLIENT LIST Updated,Thu Jul 3 12:24:18 2014 Common Name,Real Address,Bytes Received,Bytes Sent,Connected Since host01,<public ip>:41283,6597296,9666006,Thu Jul 3 11:48:06 11:31:15 2014 ROUTING TABLE Virtual Address,Common Name,Real Address,Last Ref 172.29.3.74,host1,<public ip>:41283,Thu Jul 3 12:24:17 2014 GLOBAL STATS Max bcast/mcast queue length,1 END
The problem is that after some time, the vpn server drops that route, so I only get the entry for
host01 in the OpenVPN CLIENT LIST but not in the routing table.
In the logs I only get the message:
Jul 3 06:47:39 ovpn-server: host1/:56293 MULTI: bad source address from client [172.29.3.74], packet dropped
After the route is dropped, so obviously the vpn server does not recognize that host because it doesn't know where to route the package.
Do you know what can be wrong with my setup that makes the vpn server drop routes?
