Openvpn route addition failed using service

 When trying to connect to using the Sophos Vpn (Windows) client to Sophos XG, using the protocol OpenVPN i get the following error message in de log:


"ROUTE: route addition failed using service: The object already exists. [status=5010 if_index=18] Route addition via service failed"

I don`t know how to solve it.

  • Hi  

    The error Object already exists will only occur will you already have routes in your machine. Would you please check by entering route print in CMD and see if the route is already there or not. If there's a route already there, there may be a chance that there are two different networks with the same IP subnet. Once you've taken care of that, you should not see the error while connecting SSL VPN.
