OpenVPN basic - DH parameters problem


i am trying to install openvpn server and following this guide:

my router reboots during this process:
easyrsa --batch gen-dh

any idea why my router Netgear Nighthawk X4S R7800 with LuCI openwrt-18.06 is failing on that?

You might be running out of memory. Try generating you keys and dh parameters on your normal computer- faster and more efficient. Just transfer via scp when you’re done.


DH params can take many hours to compute even on a high-end x86_64 / AMD64.

Self-calculated DH params may not be as secure as some of the pre-generated ones. Read and make a decision that meets your own needs.
