Is this OpenVPN 2.x

Are you using topology subnet in your server.conf file.


I've just set another server this morning and this is what I have. This is on 
Centos 5.3

openvpn-2.1-0.29.rc15.el5

ifconfig -a
tun0      Link encap:UNSPEC  HWaddr 
00-00-00-00-00-00-00-00-00-00-00-00-00-00-00-00  
          inet addr:192.168.166.1  P-t-P:192.168.166.1  Mask:255.255.255.0
