VPN Service

I'm trying to connect to my home network using the VPN server on the router but haven't been able to get it working. If anyone can help I really appreciate it!

I've installed Voxel's latest firmware ( and enabled the VPN service. I install the latest version of OpenVPN for Windows on a laptop and downloaded the Windows OpenVPN config files from the router.

When I try connect I get this message:

Tue Mar 13 16:02:11 2018 OpenSSL: error:140AB18E:SSL routines:SSL_CTX_use_certificate:ca md too weak
Tue Mar 13 16:02:11 2018 Cannot load certificate file C:\PROGRA~1\OpenVPN\config\client.crt
Here's my client.ovpn file. I've tried with and without the full paths for the files.

Well, these cert files are

Well, these cert files are kept in nand memory of router, and probably you have them very long time, since there was OpenSSL 0.9.8. Try to:

1. Use more fresh version of my build

2. Enable telnet and run the following command from telnet:

/etc/init.d/openvpn stop

/etc/init.d/openvpn regenerate_cert_file

after this reboot your router.
