I am new user of ubuntu and I am trying to experiment on VPN connections. I have ubuntu 10.04 on my machine. I installed VMware Player and on top of that another ubuntu 10.04. So, on the VMware Player now I installed the openvpn server which seems to work fine since the output of /etc/init.d/openvpn restart, gives me OK, and the output of ifconfig tun gives me details.
On the same machine now (not on the VMware) I installed the client. The /etc/openvpn/client.conf has the following configuration.
client dev tun proto udp remote 10.8.0.0 1194 resolv-retry infinite nobind user nobody group nogroup persist-key persist-tun ca ca.crt cert client.crt key client.key ns-cert-type server tls-auth ta.key 1 comp-lzo verb 3
Here the client again seems to work fine since I am getting OK. But the output of ifconfig tun gives me that the device did not found.
