VPN: Adress Reservation fails

IP assignments defined during the creation of a new VPN profile are not executed.

  • IP-Reservation.
  • the actually used IP address is still dynamically assigned:

Sorry but I can’t reproduce.

I’ve selected the IP address and the server respected it:

Wed Jun  3 16:16:27 2020 /sbin/ip addr add dev tun0 broadcast

Also, please note that:

Note that the entries in this file are treated by OpenVPN as suggestions only, based on past associations between a common name and IP address. They do not guarantee that the given common name will always receive the given IP address. If you want guaranteed assignment, use –ifconfig-push
