I installed an openvpn-2.0.9 server on my new CentOS 5.4 box from
using the same parameters I used on a Fedora box I retired.
Now I have a dual boot laptop that has WinXP and Fedora FC8. Both of
these partitions have openvpn clients installed that have worked well in
After adjusting these for new IP addresses, I find:
WinXP: connects and contacts boxes on the same
LAN as the server.
FC8 appears to connect but will not contact
Since I have nested routers, I was able to disconnect from the real WAN,
and use an emulated WAN. I then shut off iptables on both Linux boxes.
The behavior was not altered.
BTW, I use TAP rather than TUN.
I have run out of ideas. Suggestions would be most welcome.
