IPv6 OpenVPN client is down after reboot
- WAN PPPoE WAN
- HE.NET tunnel on WAN
- Static IPv6 on LAN
- Create a UDP6 TAP OpenVPN client
- Create and enable an iface for the client [for example, OVPN_AMS]
- Reboot router
- OVPN_AMS is up
- OVPN_AMS is down. There is an error in the log: "TCP/UDP: Socket bind failed on local address [AF_INET6]2001:470:<censored>::: Can't assign requested address"
pfSense 2.3.0 does not have such bug as far as I can recall. It appeared in 2.3.1 but I was too lazy to report.

Confirmed, doesn't need PPPoE. An OpenVPN instance on an assigned GIF interface is enough. It's acting as though the GIF interface is not configured when OpenVPN attempts to start.

It happened in cases where specific IPv6 is selected to bind and interface is in 'tentative' state, as happened in the past with dpinger. I've pushed a fix, what depends of php-pfSense-module 0.33
