Hey Everyone, somehow since i upgraded to 1.60 I can't seem to be able to transfer any data when connected to my VPN. The connection is active (password and username is recognized and the VPN icon shows up) but data does not go through at all.

Has anyone else experienced that?

If not, is there anything that has changed through the 1.60 firmware that may have broken something related to VPN access?

OpenVPN ?

At pre-first glance, I'd say it's a route problem.

Type sudo route or /sbin/route or whatever, and check.

Also, if you use the /etc/whatever startup script, you may have no useful log, so you may not even be connected at all.

For real output launch the vpn with

openvpn /path/to/configfile

Just to say the same has happened to me on 1.55, and I upgraded to 1.61 to see if that would fix it but no dice. I was talking to ekianjo about this via PM and as I understand it (correct me if I'm wrong!), ekianjo hasn't found a solution either. It would be great if this could get fixed, or does anyone have any other suggestions?

Mods - please move this to Support if that's more appropriate.

In 1.60 ED edited NetworkManager stuff to add clock sync, maybe that broke VPN?

You can disable it at Settings -> Date/time, maybe that will fix it?

Thanks for the suggestion Notaz - this hasn't worked for me either, dagnabbit.
