All right Tin Can, I was advised at today's online seminar to contact the community about the following scenario:

I am located in Edmotnon Alberta Canada yet my client browsers are picking up sites like Toronto's kijiji.ca instead of Edmonton's by default. When I turn off th VPN client, I pick up the local area correctly. Where do we start debugging?

They also discussed Community version but yeah, on second thought Alberta, Toronto, etc. sounds like AS.

Moved.

AS stands for Acces Server, OpenVPN Access Server to be precise.
It is the commercial version.

The other is the OpenVPN Community Version.
It is the open source version.
