"Cipher is not set" Error

The Pritunl OpenVPN client won’t connect to my OpenVPN server and I get the following errors:

2023-03-16 22:09:12 --cipher is not set. Previous OpenVPN version defaulted to BF-CBC as fallback when cipher negotiation failed in this case. If you need this fallback please add ‘–data-ciphers-fallback BF-CBC’ to your configuration and/or add BF-CBC to --data-ciphers./n
Options error: --nobind doesn’t make sense unless used with --remote/n
Use --help for more information./n

I’m new with this, what do I need to do to fix these errors? Thanks

The supported client options are filtered in service/parser/ovpn.go, the client configuration must only use the supported options. This is done to limit the attack surface for privilege escalation attacks in malicious VPN configuration files.

Would the unsupported option be lzo adaptive? It seems that only lzo is shown in the source file.


Oh I see, it’s complaining about nobind. So I apparently need to add -remote somewhere in the .ovpn file? But isn’t that where my server address goes? Because my server address is there.
