OpenVPN configuration help on hAP ac²

Fri Jul 10, 2020 3:13 pm

Hi, I have a hAP ac² (Firmware long term 6.45.9) on which I am trying to configure the VPN server section because I would like to connect from the outside when I am away from home using a simple client
I have tried a couple of ways; I have some gaps in understanding certificate generation.
The last guide I followed is this: ... n-mikrotik.
Following it I came to see that I actually reach the apparatus but the vpn does not connect.
Looking at the log I notice a "duplicate packet / dropping" which I understand would be a very present bug on Mikrotik.
But I think he may have made some mistakes in following the guide and in creating the certificates.
Is there any good soul that can help me? Or at least recommend a different tuotorial ....
Thanks in advance !!

I hear about some bug when you generate certificate your password must match your "secret".
Moreover need more log. Even deeper then standard log.
On other way may I propose you use IPSEC IKEv2? Nikita Tarikin did about 4 presentation for Mikrortik meetings and there is no pit falls about.
