RHEL 8 Connection Fix

Fix for connection issues on RHEL 8

There is currently an issue with the compilation options used on the OpenVPN package in the RHEL 8 EPEL repository. This issue will cause routing issues on some connections. To fix this issue run the command below to install the newer OpenVPN package from the Pritunl repository. This issue will only occur on UDP servers, TCP can also be used as a workaround.

The pritunl-openvpn package is only available on the Oracle Linux 7 and Oracle Linux 8 repositories and will provide the latest version of OpenVPN.

sudo yum swap openvpn pritunl-openvpn
sudo yum --allowerasing install pritunl-openvpn

This can be reverted by running the command below.

sudo yum --allowerasing install openvpn
