FYI- We've had a similar hangout in the past but that was back in 2014 before 2.2 was out so a good chunk of that was outdated. This will bring the info up-to-date and have info on new features in OpenVPN 2.4 as well.

Small question:
Will the presentation PDF used in this session be available in the Hangout Archive ? (as for other hangouts)
Could not find it there.   Usually it is included below the videofeed but not this time.

Could you make a practice to always add the PDF with the video in the archive at the same time ?

Btw. Thanks for very good and informative presentations. They are really handy and often gives tips
on things I didn't know, (or knew something about but you fill in details even further), even if I consider
myself somewhat advanced.  Keep up the very good work. :-)

They are usually included at the same time, it's possible it was accidentally omitted. We'll get that added in the next day or so.

I didn't have time to get it in included on Friday. From now on we will just upload the video and the PDF on the following Monday so there is plenty of time to edit/prepare.

I think there is a small misstake...
The file had a space included and the upload did not handle this well and broke the link at the space instead of add URL space padding.

If I manually change the URL to http://portal.pfsense.org/webcasts/201702_-_pfSense_Hangout_-_Advanced_OpenVPN_on_pfSense%202.4.pdf
it downloads OK but the original looks like:
http://portal.pfsense.org/webcasts/201702_-_pfSense_Hangout_-_Advanced_OpenVPN_on_pfSense
And the text version looks like:
The slides can be found here: portal.pfsense.org/webcasts/201702_-... 2.4.pdf

Either rename the file and re-upload or correct it by adding %202.4.pdf at the end.

I have another small comment that relates to the section on page 35 "RA TAP Bridge" that is worth mentioning
is that neither Android or IOS supports TAP in the current API.  (tried Android 6.0.1 and IOS 10.2.1)
- Tested with OpenVPN Connect 1.1.17 (build 76) on Samsung S7 Edge
- Tested with OpenVPN 1.1.1 (build 212) on iPaid Air 2 10.2.1 IOS 64bit

So it seems to only work on desktop apps.
Not meant as a complaint, but rather a observation.

Yep you did, I could see that now. Maybe a reminder on that page could have been done but lets just drop it
as you have already mentioned it elsewhere which was most important. :-)
