RUT300 OpenVPN connection setup issues

I’m currently trying to set up two OpenVPN connections on a newly purchased RUT300 (FW RUT30X_R_00.07.06.8).

I have all required files available (conf, ca cert, client key, HMAC, client cert…) and have also set up similar connections previously (mainly RUT955 or 240) however there should be a big difference (I guess)

It doesn’t really matter if I use the conf file, either inline conf or normal one, and attach the required files, or do the configuration without any conf file, the outcome/error remains the same:

Tue Mar 26 11:07:35 2024 daemon.err openvpn(saege3)[9417]: OpenSSL: error:0A00018E:lib(20)::reason(398)
Tue Mar 26 11:07:35 2024 daemon.err openvpn(saege3)[9417]: Cannot load certificate file /etc/vuci-uploads/cbid.openvpn.saege3.cert20240338.crt
Tue Mar 26 11:07:35 2024 daemon.notice openvpn(saege3)[9417]: Exiting due to fatal error

Any idea what’s the issue or how to solve it?



A new firmware update, version, has just been released, so there may be some problems with it. To check if the issues are related to this new firmware, could you please try setting up OpenVPN using the previous firmware version?

Best regards,
