Softether's OpenVPN not able to send SNI?

Post by drkrool » Mon Feb 22, 2021 5:17 am


I need "SNI" to work to be able to put softether behind a reverse proxy such as HAProxy.

It's working great with Softether protocol, I can connect using "" on port 443 and reverse proxy redirects it to the good backend.

Using the openvpn clone in softether, I can't use such feature. In the config, I tried having theses two, but it never sends the SNI :
remote 443
SNI ""

Every time, it uses the IP directly I beleive going to my default backend as it didn't find any SNI.

It seems it was implemented in OpenVPN V3 according to this post :

Would it be possible to add this feature?

Greatly appreciated
