    vpn connects without problem and works perfectly. Should I be concerned about these warnings during startup?

    # openvpn --config alwaysvpn-compatible

    This isn't anything you need to worry about.

    If you don't want to see the warning anymore you could update your configuration files to use the line

    verify-x509-name alwaysvpn_s name-prefix

    instead of tls-remote alwaysvpn_s

    and use


    instead of tls-cipher DHE-RSA-AES256-SHA:DHE-DSS-AES256-SHA
