Hello, I am trying to set up a VPN on my Personal PC using OVPN and have been following this guide :

https://supporthost.in/how-to-install- ... ndows-11/

I got stuck at Part 5B,
After i Edited the client config on the Client PC, and tired to connect, errors that i cannot make sense of occurs, i have followed everything correctly
I am attaching images of the error, the client log and the client config itself.
it says there are unrecognizes or missing or extra params but there is nothing there and im very confused as to where the issue is.

Client Config :
##############################################
# Sample client-side OpenVPN 2.0 config file #
# for connecting to multi-client server. #
# #
# This configuration can be used by multiple #
# clients, however each client should have #
# its own cert and key files. #
# #
# On Windows, you might want to rename this #
# file so it has a .ovpn extension #
##############################################

# Specify that we are a client and that we
# will be pulling certain config file directives
# from the server.

# Use the same setting as you are using on
# the server.
# On most systems, the VPN will not function
# unless you partially or fully disable
# the firewall for the TUN/TAP interface.

# from the Network Connections panel
# if you have more than one. On XP SP2,

# your server certificates with the keyUsage set to
# digitalSignature, keyEncipherment
# and the extendedKeyUsage to
# serverAuth
# EasyRSA can do this for you.

Can someone help me find the issue and resort this?
