OpenVPN: Option to disable encryption
Closed, ResolvedPublicFEATURE REQUEST


In rare cases it’s required to run an OpenVPN tunnel without encryption. This is a valid option in OpenVPN, but not implemented in VyOS.
I would request that this be added to

interfaces openvpn <intf> encryption cipher

as option


It should display a warning on commit, similar to the OpenVPN warning in the log.

It should write

cipher none

to the openvpn config.
