Windows 10: Memory leak with bridged adapters. Solved

    Memory leak with bridged adapters.


    Hello,
    I'm using OpenVPN bridged adapter on Windows 10 Pro. When pushing a file to a share on it, non paged memory grows, until all RAM is filled, and computer becomes unresponsive. If a file is smaller than available RAM, or if the transfer is canceled memory does not get released.
    It only happens if a file is "pushed" to a server, if "pulled" it works fine, also if I unbridge the adapters, everything works too.
    Does anyone know a way to fix this, providing I keep the bridge?

    It's likely a bug in OpenVPN when used on Windows 10. You should report it to them, as they create and maintain the driver.

    Also, unless you're testing on the latest Insider release, it probably doesn't mean much, since networking has changed a lot since the November release.
