Hello,
I did compile net-misc/openvpn-2.3.2 USE="down-root examples iproute2 lzo pam passwordsave plugins ssl -pkcs11 (-polarssl) (-selinux) -static"
After starting it, i notice, that (all?) encryption is disabled. Does somebody know, why? I have ssl in the useflag.
Also i tried to compile the sourcecode in the Gentoo tree on my own with looking that encryption is on (./configure, i mentioned the --help)

Code:

# openvpn

(...)
Code:
 
Wed Apr  9 19:05:45 2014 OpenVPN 2.3.2 i686-pc-linux-gnu [SSL (OpenSSL)] [LZO] [EPOLL] [eurephia] [MH] [IPv6] built on Apr  7 2014
Wed Apr  9 19:05:45 2014 ******* WARNING *******: all encryption and authentication features disabled -- all data will be tunnelled as cleartext
Wed Apr  9 19:05:45 2014 TUN/TAP device tun1 opened 

(...)

Somebody knows, how to fix it and get all ciphers working?[/code]

If you try and run the OpenVPN binary directly without a config file then it will spit out the options, so please post your config - we can't read your mind.

Obviously, anonymize it!

Cheers
Jon

Hey dude!
I have been stopped testing.
After i rebooted the device i noticed that it's working with ciphers.
That message doesn't appear now on my TLS configuration, like before.
It only comes when doing a test tunnel without cipher. That is right.

I can't really tell you, why, after the reboot the TLS tunnel is ciphering.

Maybe there was some old library in the memory, because i had the first try with a gentoo packet without ssl.

Thanks anyway for your help attempt!
