Re: Recursive routing detected error in OpenVPN

We have found the best solution for the recursive routing flood is to modify the client config as follows:

 

comment out "nobind" so the line looks like this instead:
#nobind

then add --local IP line to config. If you're device does not have a static ip, use ipconfig from CMD window to retrieve it (Windows). So you add this line

local <your device's local IP>

 

We also tried the remedy of using an older version of OpenVPN client but that did not solve our issue.
