I have a centos 7.6 vps as server with public ip address.
Also i have an android phone + windows 7 os as clients with wireless internet.
I installed OpenConnect (ocserv) on server machine & config it in the right way.
I followed these commands to install openconnect on server machine :

sudo yum -y install gnutls-devel libev-devel tcp_wrappers-devel pam-devel lz4-devel libseccomp-devel readline-devel libnl3-devel krb5-devel radcli-devel
sudo yum -y install epel-release
sudo yum repolist enabled
sudo yum info ocserv
sudo yum -y install ocserv
sudo ocpasswd -c /etc/ocserv/ocpasswd test
nano -K /etc/ocserv/ocserv.conf

And here is ocserv.conf file :

auth = "plain[passwd=/etc/ocserv/ocpasswd]"

tcp-port = 8090
udp-port = 8090

run-as-user = ocserv
run-as-group = ocserv

socket-file = ocserv.sock

chroot-dir = /var/lib/ocserv

isolate-workers = true

max-clients = 5

max-same-clients = 1

keepalive = 32400

dpd = 90

mobile-dpd = 1800

switch-to-tcp-timeout = 25

try-mtu-discovery = true

server-cert = /etc/pki/ocserv/public/server.crt
server-key = /etc/pki/ocserv/private/server.key

ca-cert = /etc/pki/ocserv/cacerts/ca.crt

cert-user-oid = 0.9.2342.19200300.100.1.1


auth-timeout = 240

min-reauth-time = 300

max-ban-score = 50

ban-reset-time = 300

cookie-timeout = 300

deny-roaming = false

rekey-time = 172800

rekey-method = ssl

use-occtl = true

pid-file = /var/run/ocserv.pid

device = vpns

predictable-ips = true

default-domain = example.com

ipv4-network =
ipv4-netmask =

dns =
dns =

ping-leases = false

cisco-client-compat = true

dtls-legacy = true

user-profile = profile.xml

# Routes to be forwarded to the client. If you need the
# client to forward routes to the server, you may use the 
# config-per-user/group or even connect and disconnect scripts.
# To set the server as the default gateway for the client just
# comment out all routes from the server, or use the special keyword
# 'default'.

#route =
#route =
#route = fef4:db8:1000:1001::/64

I didn't do anything about certificate & all of related parts are default.
I installed openconnect gui from here on windows os client machine & it connects to the openconnect server successfully with no errors & i can surf the internet using with that very well.
Now i installed openconnect android from here on client android phone.
I tracked openconnect connection logs in this way on the server :

journalctl -fu ocserv

When android machine connects to the server journalctl -fu ocserv shows an strange error :

worker[username]: user's ipaddress worker-vpn.c:295: could not set TLS priority: The request is invalid.

ocserv repeats that error multiple times & at last ban that client's ip address.
so on android machine i can not surf the internet.
openconnect is connect, but does not work.

What is this error & how can i fix it?

I installed cisco any connect from here on android machine & it connects to ocserv with the same error.
But it works & i can surf the internet on android phone (vpn connected).

  • does running update-crypto-policies fix it? – Rui F Ribeiro Feb 22 at 21:54
  • What is this command? It tells command not found. – SilverLight Feb 22 at 23:04
