Seriously guys, don't you want to stop +1 ?

It has no effect, Mikrotik devs aren't counting how many people are incrementing an unexisting counter...

Even the counter doesn't exist at all, it can be always easily risen by one in metavirtualized space. Isn't it wonderful?

+1 for UDP.
TCP is much slower than UDP at high latency or high packet loss environment.

resource consumption -wize - LZO isn't so great thing. not only in OpenVPN package.
but UDP is quite common feature and "expected" thing, yep. its only of things that actually make OpenVPN handy(compared to say SSTP or L2TP).

It depends on what you need. Enabling LZO on some weaker RB and expecting to push through many Mbits would not work well. But instead, you may need to access server using some very slow connection and then every saved byte is good. And don't forget client scenario, where you must accomodate to server config that you can't change.

The point is, RouterOS OpenVPN needs to support everything that official OpenVPN supports. If it doesn't, there will always be dissapointed users. Because if OpenVPN support is advertised, people usually don't expect it to be just part of it.
People who quote full posts should be spanked with ethernet cable. Some exceptions for multi-topic threads may apply.

Re: Feature request: OpenVPN compression LZO and UDP

For me this is a make or break feature. I cannot believe that for 10 years Mikrotik has not been able to do this. How many hundreds of users do you have that all have been asking for this, plus the thousands more who need it but haven't posted in any of the numerous forum threads on the topic.

GPL licensing should not be an issue since they are not linking with it. So they can use it as a process running within their proprietary environment, their only obligation under GPL being to make the source code of OpenVPN itself available, which simply means having a statement in the manual: Mikrotik software uses GPL source code, you can download it here -> point to OpenVPN official git repos.

Absolutely essential features for me and I think most users are:

UDP
LZO
TLS

OpenVPN has become the de-facto standard VPN for numerous environments for many reasons, because basically it has more features, wider support and is easier to configure than any of the proprietary VPN protocols, and does things IPsec just can't easily do, and does so with a fraction of the configuration difficulty.

How can even Ubiquiti of all vendors have this and yet Mikrotik cannot do it. Sorry to be blunt but this is insanity and total burying of head in the sand from Mikrotik. *Please* pull yourselves together and come up with a viable roadmap here. I really want to use your products but you are making it so hard...

P.S. the news that UDP support is coming in v7 is welcome, but what about LZO and preferably TLS> Without those it's still useless for many people. Remember if the server is configured to use LZO, you *have to use LZO*. And nobody is going to turn off LZO on their server just so I can connect my Mikrotik to it.

I was sadden today when I went to setup an openvpn connection and couldn't figure out why things weren't working. Come to find out, lzo isn't supported! Seriously? Pretty much any vpn provider offering openvpn requires lzo compression.

So I can flash some crappy linksys or netgear router with dd-wrt / openwrt and have all the openvpn features, yet i can't with my mikrotik.... nice

I would like to keep my hopes up that proper support is coming...but judging by this thread, it doesn't seem promising.

I'm sorry, but it looks like they do not care about the opinion of its customers. I do not buy more Mikrotik. I use OpenWRT for OVPN of customers.

I don't think there is much point in adding +1 and "me too" messages to this thread.
The situation is clear: there is no LZO and UDP support, and it is not going to happen in v6.
It is promised to be solved in v7 but it is totally unclear when there will be a v7.
Could be next week, next month, next year, or 2020.
For now, no LZO and UDP for OpenVPN (and many other features promised for v7)

V7 will not be for free!

Unconfirmed informants told that RouterOS V7 will cost about 199$ for upgrade and 299$ for new installations in an anual subscription.

It will only work with SSL/TLS certificates generated by MT cloud services wich is another $49 per year.

Each VPN client need its own certificate to work properly. So 10 VPN users will be $490 per year and so on.






....just joking ;-)

That is certainly the quickest and probably the best way to get fully functional OpenVPN service.
In our network we use a Debian Linux server as a complicated VPN concentrator (many different protocols including OpenVPN)
and use MikroTik routers everywhere else. Although MikroTik is Linux-based it certainly cannot offer the
full flexibility of a manually configured Linux system. Of course, when you need only what it offers, it is
much easier to configure. And there is nice and cheap hardware.
