It seems ok in that I can at least get my server-side OpenVPN to connect. When I say connect, I mean that the OpenVPN gui turns green, I get a message that it's got an IP address etc.
I've made sure that my zonealarm firewall has allowed OpenVPN on both client and server. I've set port forwarding and such on my router as described in the tutorial. The issue is that I can't get the client to connect at all. No matter what I try (putting server in DMZ, changing the port, etc), all I get is this error:
read UDPv4: Connection reset by perr (WSAECONNRESET)(code=10054)
over and over and over.
I tried using telnet to connect to my computer and the port number for the server and got this:
Connecting to (static IP of my home router) ... Could not open connection to the host, on port 1194: Connect failed
