FWIW I submitted a support ticket and asked our Technical Account Manager to bump it to the team working on the client. So far no action.

IP forwarding is currently disabled when using the AWS Client VPN Desktop Application. It has been disabled since the launch of the service on December 18, 2018, in order to address an issue reported by NIST. We understand, however, that some customers may need this functionality for their services. While we do not have a specific date at this time, we do plan to safely enable IP forwarding in an upcoming release.

And this was in... August 2022. There were releases since, none has fixed it.

If you're up for it, you could do the same - create a support ticket to move this to the team. Maybe if there's enough voices, they will make this higher priority.

Has anyone looked into having it not constantly overwrite sysctl net.ipv4.ip_forward=0?

Yeah. It's a bit of a hack, but after installing or updating I modify /opt/awsvpnclient/Service/Resources/openvpn/configure-dns to turn forwarding back on right after it calls the configure_dns and reset_dns functions.

I guess they don't want you forwarding connections over a shared bastion (since you pay per connection) - but =1 may be needed for other purposes, such as running docker containers or building images with a bridged internet connection.

Hi all.

Yesterday I was connecting to the AWS VPN client without any issues. Today I turned on my laptop, connected to the VPN and immediately lost access to the internet.

I checked the versions and noticed that 3.2.0 was released on 23rd. Tried to install the new version and it solved the problem.

Just writing in case someone else has the same problem.

P.s: I can open a merge request with the changes if necessary, but to be honest I never changed any repo in AUR so I don't know what's the process like

I also add the same issue and installing openssl-1.1 solved it.

$ uname -r

Like @cotko and @charrington said, I've encountered the same issue and the proposed solution also worked.

(I'm running Arch Linux)

cotko commented on 2022-11-08 09:29 (UTC)

I have same problem with No usable version of libssl was found as @charrington mentioned since latest sys update. And is also gone after installing openssl-1.1.

project0 commented on 2022-11-08 08:51 (UTC)

@charrington I cannot reproduce your issue. It works totally fine with the normal openssl (3.x as of today) package (what should be installed by default), the openssl-1.1 package is definitely not required. Do you use any other distribution than the main stream arch linux?
