Pritunl client not connecting: Unrecognized Option data-ciphers 2.4.7

We had a bug in pritunl-client-electron v1.3.3596 where we couldn’t connect to our servers:


We downgraded to v1.3.3484.2 and it worked again.

This is the line from the mentioned file that I think is involved in this error:

key-direction 1
pull-filter ignore “ping-restart”
data-ciphers “AES-256-GCM:AES-128-GCM:CHACHA20-POLY1305:AES-256-CBC:AES-128-CBC”

This is some sort of temporary configuration generated when connecting to the server. Sorry, I don’t know enough about Pritunl to give more details :frowning:

Our server is running v1.30.3043.48

Also, we only had this problem on Linux machines, not MacOS, but i’m not sure if that’s just because the MacOS’s didn’t update to this newer version

Same issue, and same thing in our logs too. it broke for 100s of our client machines all with Linux.

something is terribly wrong with the last update. We had to revert back to 1.3.3584.5. The client always goes into a connection disconnection loop…

This should be fixed in v1.3.3600.11
