rc.openvpn thinks GIF tunnel is one of OpenVPN tunnels
« on: April 07, 2016, 03:17:19 am »
Hello,

I saw a lot of strings like this in the log but noticed just now:
Quote
Apr 6 17:42:46   php-fpm   68235   /rc.openvpn: OpenVPN: One or more OpenVPN tunnel endpoints may have changed its IP. Reloading endpoints that may use VLAN4_TUNNELV4.
Apr 6 17:42:45   check_reload_status      updating dyndns VLAN4_TUNNELV4

First of all, VLAN4_TUNNELV4 is a GIF tunnel.
Secondly, GIF tunnels are static. Why there are should be any "reloads"?
And the last one thing, ahem, a dyndns update for GIF tunnel?

When the interface comes up, it goes through the same process as a dynamic gateway, it doesn't matter that it's static. The fact it's logging those things just means it's checking whether anything needs to be done. Yes you can bind a dyndns update to a gif tunnel if you want, you must not, so it just checked and did nothing.
