Hey folks,

I set up an Azure Virtual Network Gateway (SKU VpnGw1) And vonfigured a P2S Connection for using OpenVPN. I also configured the Oen VPN Client using this doumentation:

https://learn.microsoft.com/de-de/azure/vpn-gateway/vpn-gateway-howto-openvpn-clients

The connection is estabilshed perfectly. However the Client reconnects approx. every 45 seconds.

This is an extractfrom the log at the time of the event:

11.6.2020, 11:45:37 EVENT: CONNECTED xxx.vpn.azure.com:443 (XXX.XXX.XXX.XXX) via /TCPv4 on TUN_WIN/10.2.0.2/ gw=[xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx/]
11.6.2020, 11:46:16 Session invalidated: KEEPALIVE_TIMEOUT
11.6.2020, 11:46:16 Client terminated, restarting in 2000 ms...
11.6.2020, 11:46:16 SetupClient: signaling tun destroy event
11.6.2020, 11:46:18 EVENT: RECONNECTING
11.6.2020, 11:46:18 EVENT: RESOLVE
11.6.2020, 11:46:18 Contacting xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx via TCPv4

I hope you can help me with that.

best regards

Jonas

    We had the same problem with the OpenVPN Connect beta client 3.1.3 and the latest OpenVPN Connect stable client 2.7.1

    With the OpenVPN client 2.4.9 it's working as expected.
    The client can be found here: https://openvpn.net/community-downloads/

    Is there any news on the topic? I am having the same issue and tried out every possible version of OpenVPN Client. It doesn't matter which client I use, It's constantly resetting the connection every 45 to 75 seconds!

    This is what the log looks like:
