I installed the latest beta release - 1.11b7 ( and for some reason, it continuously goes in a connecting loop where it connects and then disconnects and I can never get connected to my work VPN. I am reverting to the stable release which works fine with my connections until addressed.

Yes, I am using a Windows Insider build (26052) but previous betas worked fine up until the last couple (1800/1801). The log of the connection is attached.

Hi chris,

Thank you for posting your connection log. Can you please try with the latest beta version (1.11b8)? If all goes well, you should see a "Error: Server Encryption Cipher Disallowed" alert pop up, with an offer to allow the use of the cipher your OpenVPN server wants to use. If you don't see this alert please let us know. OpenVPN 2.6 changes the default ciphers allowed by a connection, which is why you're now running into this issue.
