I was having some trouble with a road-warrior configuration and determined that the client was trying to use comp-lzo but the server was not.I tried enabling it on the server (IPFire) on the OpenVPN Advanced Server Options page (stopping the service ahead of time). However, I can check the LZO-Compression box and click on ‘Saved advanced options,’ but when I go back to the page again, the box remains unchecked.
I took a look in the server configuration file, and sure enough, no comp-lzo line has been written there. So it appears that you can’t enable it through the IPFire GUI even if you want to.
I don’t need the compression, and I see that there is a security issue with it, so I won’t use it. But if IPFire is now “enforcing” its non-use, could the page be changed to make that clear? Thank you.
