Model: ER605 (TL-R605)  
Hardware Version: V2
Firmware Version: 2.2.4

I need to use standalone ER605 as a OpenVPN client to a pfSense OpenVPN server, which is raises some issues on the product documentation.

 

It is not specified which cipher suites ER605 supports?

 

Either is it specified which TLS ER605 supports?

 

Where is the VPN log on ER605?

 

My issue is that TLS handshake fails, which indicates that TLS version could be the issue.

 

Hope to get some clarification of the questions.

 

Regards

 

Martek

I have solved my issue which was caused by a wrong type of certificate. And i have a test running where ER605 connects as OpenVPN client to af pfSense 2.7.2 OpenVPN server

 

Trouble shooting could be made easier, if there was som kind og log or the possibility redirect logs to a syslog server.

 

Any way, some documentation of the implemented VPN services would be appreciated. It would nice to able to make configurations that can meet ER605 possibilities.

1. Most common ciphers are supported now. Name one and I can help you check.

2. ER605 does not have a VPN log.

3. I think you can try lower the TLS version first as our built-in OpenVPN version is around 2.4.0. Currently, TLS 1.2.
