I am working on a mystery. I am using
openvpn-2.1_beta7-gui-1.0.3-install on all
the computers in question. All computers
are running XP-Pro-SP2. (Mine is running
in a virtual window -- details below.)
This configuration works perfectly from my office.
I use it to call five facilities:
ifconfig 192.168.240.30 255.255.255.0
But, this EXACT config works on TWO other
computers, but not mine:
remote ww.xx.yy.zz 5020
The only difference between the two computers
that MY config works on and mine, is that
my computer is running in a virtual window.
Host: Cent OS 5.1
The host and the guest are connected by
a bridge (br0):
When trying to connect, the same error message
pops up on my computer (virtual XP) and on the
distant end's (XP) server:
TLS Error: TLS key negotiation failed to occur
within 60 seconds (check your network connectivity)
The SAME error message!
Why does the first config work, but not the
second? It is obviously not the config: it
is identical on the other two computers
that it works on. I think it may
be the way open vpn is reacting to my bridge,
but then, again, the first config works.
Editorial comment: AAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!
Anyone know what I am doing wrong?
