    Default Ubuntu 18.04 Route Add Error

    There seem to be many forum posts about this issue, but so far no solutions have worked. My Windows clients connect just fine to the OpenVPN app on my Untangle appliance (version 14). However, I can never connect on Fedora or Ubuntu Linux clients. I am always stuck at a Route Add error.

    My last clue was that the config file should have "dev tap" instead of "dev tun", but that didn't work.

    Any suggestions?

    Route add error is not necessary a problem. I had some route log errors when client is trying to add an already added route.

    if you are using gnome network manager, there is no support for lz4 compression right now so parsing ovpn config file will not import that option.
    Try to connect via command line: /usr/sbin/openvpn --suppress-timestamps --nobind --config file.ovpn
