    Dear all,

    I use a WRT54GL with the following firmware:
    Tomato Firmware 1.28.0005 112 ND VPN

    I'm trying to set up a VPN server. I have followed the tutorial (crosschecking several), imported keys, certificates and DH parameters, saving after the configuation of each tab in the tomato GUI.

    However, when I click "Start now", I find the following error message in my Logs:
    Sep 24 21:40:26 adr2 daemon.err openvpn[607]: Options error: Bad port number: 0
    Sep 24 21:40:26 adr2 daemon.warn openvpn[607]: Use --help for more information.

    Please give me so much credit to believe that the port was NOT 0. When I check, the port field is empty. Well, try again, enter a number, say 1194, save, wait a moment, hit start. Same error.

    I rebooted the router and tried again, didn't help.

    Any ideas?

    Thank you,

    Apparently, this was a memory problem. When I removed my adblock script, the service was able to start.
