mikrotik openvpn client stucks while initialization

mikrotik openvpn client stucks while initialization

Hello.
I have a strange error with Mikrotik (RB951Ui-2HnD) working like OVPN-client.

On the server side we have a OpenVPN (2.4.0.) server with radiusplugin and freeradius.
On the client side we have a RB951Ui-2HnD authorizing via login+passwd.
Recently I`ve noticed strange behavior with Mikrotik.
While connecting to server I see on the client side
int ovpn-client disable 0
int ovpn-client enab 0
int ovpn-client moni 0
status: link established
mtu: 1500

но ovpn-out1 interface, no connection from mtik to server.

But from the server side I see

What we see - is that client sending PUSH_REQUEST to the server before openvpn radiusplugin returns OK (status=0)
If it appears - some king of misordering appears , client stucks waiting for PUSH_REPLY, but server doesn`t sending PUSH_REPLY because he waits for radiusplugin return code.
ping-restart timeout will terminate this session.
In case of PUSH_REQUEST arrives after radiusplugin return code - everything is fine, connection is succesfully established in 2-3 seconds.

I`ve take another router (dlink dir-620 d1 with openwrt), set up openvpn as client - no problem appears.
10 attempts to connect to server - always PUSH_REQUEST arrives AFTER radiusplugin.

Is there any king of detailed description of RouterOS OpenVPN stages description?
What is happened between status: "link established" and status:"connected" ? Is it software error of this behaviour can be changed using some options ?

Problem solved.
Problem was on a server side
By default openvpn doest not enable this option
async-push -
enable async-push support for plugins providing deferred authentication @<:@default=no@:>@])

Experienced this dialing a pfsense firewall OpenVPN server. I've had to put a 10ms tarpit in place to give LDAP time to respond as the client was very close. Emailed support in the hope the client could be improved, however, this may be a feature?

pfSense feature request raised https://redmine.pfsense.org/issues/10273 and looks to now be added to FreeBSD port
