OpenVPN MD5 Certificate Error

This issue was resolved in a previous version. However NG Firewall cannot insert a new encryption certificate into the OpenVPN server automatically on upgrade, as it would break all existing VPN clients. So in order to insert the new encryption level you will need to completely remove OpenVPN app from NG Firewall. Install it again, then rebuild and redeploy all of your OpenVPN clients. Please note that this is a major change and as such requires several steps to complete.


1) Export the existing clients list found under OpenVPN > Server tab > Remote Clients tab.

2) Click Remove OpenVPN in the lower left corner under OpenVPN > Status tab.

3) Click Install Apps and re-install OpenVPN.

4) Import the clients list that was exported in step 1.

5) Download all clients and distribute to the associated users.
