Hi backherozzo,

The following lines in your log indicates that there is an invalid command in your connection:
Code: Select all
2019-04-19 21:47:32: Options error: The command "XXXX" or one of its parameters is invalid for this version of OpenVPN (2.4.6). Please edit the connection, make sure the command is valid, and try again.
2019-04-19 21:47:32: Full command: test 
To resolve the error you can edit the advanced commands section for your connection and remove the invalid command listed in the log messages, and then try connecting again. For information on how to edit advanced commands please see:
