Description Stephen Warren 2005-12-04 08:14:38 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.8) Gecko/20051118 Fedora/1.5-0.5.0.rc3 Firefox/1.5

Description of problem:
Config file directive "redirect-gateway" doesn't work because of an upstream package bug. Looking at the changelog, it's fixed in the next beta release.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Edit openvpn's config file, add "redirect-gateway" option there
2. service start openvpn
3. less /var/log/messages
4. Observe text "NOTE: unable to redirect default gateway -- Cannot read current default gateway from system"


Actual Results:  Error message displayed in syslog.

Default gateway is left unchanged on the system after the VPN is brought up.

Expected Results:  Default gateway should be set to the gateway value pushed by the VPN server

Additional info:

openvpn upstream changelog indicates it's already fixed in the next beta:

Fixed bug in Linux get_default_gateway function
introduced in 2.0.4, which would cause redirect-gateway
on Linux clients to fail.

Apparently when I updated to 2.1-beta7 on November 18, I forgot to request a build.

Sorry for the inconvenience.

Comment 2 Stephen Warren 2005-12-06 05:18:53 UTC
Out of curiosity, how long do the builds take - I assume it's some kind of
automated queue?

Not trying to bug you though.

Comment 3 Steven Pritchard 2005-12-06 15:35:42 UTC
The build failed due to dependency breakage in rawhide.  I just requeued the
build.  Hopefully it will go well this time.
