Upgrade the OpenVPN Version

Why Need Upgrade the OpenVPN Version

In Yeastar U-Series and VoIP Gateways the OpenVPN version is 2.0.5. If the OpenVPN sever use TUN mode / Subnet Topology, then Yeastar client side can't connect it unless upgrade the version to the latest one 2.4.3.

Introduction of OpenVPN Topology

There are three topology of OpenVPN TUN mode: Subnet, NET30 and P2P.


The current recommended topology for modern servers. Note that this is not the current default. Addressing is done by IP & netmask.


This is the old topology for support with Windows clients running 2.0.9 or older clients. This is the default as of OpenVPN 2.3, but not recommended for current use. Each client is allocated a virtual /30, taking 4 IPs per client, plus 4 for the server.


This topology uses Point-to-Point networking. This is not compatible with Windows clients, though use with non-Windows allows use of the entire subnet (no "lost" IPs.)
