I am running the openvpn client (version 2.0.9-143.15) on openSUSE 11.1 (32-bit). I have the openvpn server running on the Astaro Security Gateway (version 7.306) and have the SSL VPN working just fine with windows clients connecting to the server. When I connect from my openSuse laptop the vpn tunnel is established successfully for a couple of seconds but it disconnects shortly thereafter.
It appears from the logs on the server that there is a decryption error that drops the connection after which it is reestablished again only to be dropped a couple of seconds later after receiving a soft-reset from the client.
The client log shows a plugin failure that seems to be responsible for the drop of the connection. I have upgraded the client to the latest openvpn client (openVPN 2.1_RC15) but then the connection fails right off the bat where as with version 2.0.9 I at least get an initial connection even if it is only for a few seconds.
Can anyone give me some direction on how I can resolve this issue? I have attached logs from both the server and the client with the details.
