I think I have missed something in getting openvpn working. Before I start posting conf files and logs, I'm running into the following error upon a connection (which, of itself, is some significant progress!): Client attempts to connect to the openvpn server, the server logs: 21:15:13 2008 us=631560 192.168.2.11:2882 VERIFY ERROR: depth=1, error=certificate is not yet valid: [cert info] I was seeing this earlier when the openvpn server would start up. I pointed the vpn server to use ntp. That solved the startup problem. Is this still a date/time issue? I've been searching around google and really haven't found anything to advance my progress. This is DD-WRT v24 sp1 on a Linksys wrtsl54gs. Certs were created on an Ubuntu box. The connection is being tested locally which isn't ideal, although my hope is to get the keys sorted out before going external. Any thoughts?
