Legacy Open Mesh: Breaking VPN Settings Change in 1.0.5 Firmware



This article describes a change in the 1.0.5 router firmware release.


  • Open Mesh Routers


Deprecated compression settings in the VPN configuration files are no longer needed. VPN clients should no longer report errors related to these deprecated settings. However, OpenVPN user credentials previously downloaded from CloudTrax will no longer work in firmware versions 1.0.5 or later.

To update your credentials, log into your CloudTrax network, and re-download your OpenVPN user credential files. You should also ensure your router is running firmware version 1.0.5 or later.

You can also edit the previously downloaded .ovpn file and replace the following line:

comp-lzo adaptive


compress lz4
