OpenVPN clients without Host Names

Post by Axl » Thu Sep 13, 2018 7:26 am

OpenVPN service did not resolve (or just didn't show in VPN Server Manager) Client Host Names.
The same devices connected via L2TP/IPSec resolves fine.

It a very serious problem to identify clients with that bug, because MAC-addresses of OpenVPN-clients could change!

MAC address generator doesn't refer to the hostname.
OpenVPN doesn't notify hostname on the protocol.

But when the same clients connected to OpenVPN-Server their host names are resolved on that server!!!
