If you would like help, here is a few things you will want to do in order to help us help you.

**Post your configs from client and server, without comments. you can strip comments in linux/bsd with something like this:
grep -vE '^#|^;|^$' server.conf
**Tell us your goal.
**If you are having problems connecting, post your logfiles from server and client after using verb 4 in both configs


Also, there are 2 things you should be aware of:

**Sometimes you cannot avoid tunneling over tcp, but if you can avoid it, DO. Why TCP Over TCP Is A Bad Idea: http://sites.inka.de/~bigred/devel/tcp-tcp.html
**You ONLY want to use dev tap if you are tunneling layer2 traffic, if you are using IP traffic you want tun. If you are using tap only for windows file sharing, look into running a WINS server instead.

Hi guys,
I have always used the same openvnp configuration for accessing my company files.
I already istalled the same config in different laptop I used.
Today I'm making the migration from my old laptop to my new one BUT the config doesn't work at all
(what I did: download openvpn, installed, installed my keys and config files)

Here the log:

Fri Dec 09 15:19:49 2011 OpenVPN 2.0.9 Win32-MinGW [SSL] [LZO] built on Oct 1 2006
Fri Dec 09 15:19:49 2011 IMPORTANT: OpenVPN's default port number is now 1194, based on an official port number assignment by IANA. OpenVPN 2.0-beta16 and earlier used 5000 as the default port.
Fri Dec 09 15:19:49 2011 WARNING: No server certificate verification method has been enabled. See http://openvpn.net/howto.html#mitm for more info.
Fri Dec 09 15:19:49 2011 Cannot load private key file Laura_XXX.key: error:02001002:system library:fopen:No such file or directory: error:20074002:BIO routines:FILE_CTRL:system lib: error:140B0002:SSL routines:SSL_CTX_use_PrivateKey_file:system lib
Fri Dec 09 15:19:49 2011 Error: private key password verification failed
Fri Dec 09 15:19:49 2011 Exiting


:/ I tried every possible solution but it doesn't work at all. thanks for every suggestion :)
Laura

Place your key files under the same folder as the config file.

That's the problem: the files are already in the same folder of config file...

Post the config file, and the directory listing of the folder where the config file resides with chmod shown.

i believe jadel uses windows not linux..

if you use win 7 use openvpn 2.1.4 or higher,2.0.9 is quite old..

also post your config..


ps: i noticed this:Error: private key password verification failed
did you protect the key file with password?

Michael.
