Hello gurus ,

I have a vmware machine on xp wich holds a FREBSD 8.0 BETA2 i386

my xp ip is
my freebsd le0 ( ext iface, vmware bridged ) is ( can ping google; etc...)
my freebsd le2 (int iface, vmware local only) is
my freebsd le1 is disabled as i wanted to ;

on the external lan we have another ( real machine ) freebsd 7.2-RELEASE i386

I have installed on both bds`s openvpn "openvpn-2.0.6_9"

I want to put the vpn server on the virtual bsd ( 0.105) and the client on the real bsd ( 0.2)
They are installed ( the packages) and i have already configured openvpn.conf 4 each machine , one to be server(..0.105) and the other to be the client (..0.2),
I can start the server (/usr/local/etc/rc.d/openvpn start )
ps ax | grep vpn - gives me :
1116 ?? Ss 0:00.54 /usr/local/sbin/openvpn --cd /usr/local/etc/openvpn --daemon openvpn --config /usr/local/etc/openvpn/openvpn.conf --writepid /var/

and the openvpn.conf on the server has the uncommented lines :
port 1194
proto tcp
;proto udp  - i put it so u dont ask about it 
;dev tap - same 
dev tun
[SIZE=2]ca "/var/openvpn/keys/ca.crt"
cert "/var/openvpn/keys/server.crt"
key "/var/openvpn/keys/server.key" # This file should be kept secret
[SIZE=2]dh "/var/openvpn/keys/dh1024.pem"
[SIZE=2]ifconfig-pool-persist ipp.txt
[SIZE=2]keepalive 10 120
[SIZE=2]status openvpn-status.log
[SIZE=2]verb 3

and the ifconfig gives me :
[SIZE=2]le0: flags=8843<UP,BROADCAST,RUNNING,SIMPLEX,MULTICAST> metric 0 mtu 1500
        ether 00:0c:29:4a:4f:fa
        inet netmask 0xffffff00 broadcast
        media: Ethernet autoselect
        status: active

        ether 00:0c:29:4a:4f:04

        ether 00:0c:29:4a:4f:0e
        inet netmask 0xffffff00 broadcast
        media: Ethernet autoselect
        status: active
plip0: flags=8810<POINTOPOINT,SIMPLEX,MULTICAST> metric 0 mtu 1500

        inet netmask 0xff000000
tun0: flags=8051<UP,POINTOPOINT,RUNNING,MULTICAST> metric 0 mtu 1500
        inet --> netmask 0xffffffff
        Opened by PID 1102

and the client hat the following uncommented openvpn.conf lines :
;dev tap
dev tun
proto tcp
;proto udp
remote 1194
user nobody
group nobody
ca ca.crt
cert client.crt
key client.key
verb 3

I must tell you that i copied directly the files generated (ca.crt, cert.crt and client.key ) from the server

For any doubts if "telnet 1194" from the client (0.2) i get :
Connected to
Escape character is '^]'.

meaning i am connected to the soket Smilie

Ok now . When i try from ( client ) to :
# /usr/local/etc/rc.d/openvpn start
Starting openvpn.

Nothing happends and if i try again , nothing , i belive it is something with the authentification as the server listens but you are the gurus
