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.

Any help?
