Thats normal. in my case
Server
tun0      Link encap:UNSPEC  HWaddr 
00-00-00-00-00-00-00-00-00-00-00-00-00-00-00-00  
          inet addr:192.168.133.1  P-t-P:192.168.133.1  Mask:255.255.255.0

client laptop
tun0      Link encap:UNSPEC  HWaddr 
00-00-00-00-00-00-00-00-00-00-00-00-00-00-00-00  
          inet addr:192.168.133.3  P-t-P:192.168.133.3  Mask:255.255.255.0

I'm using topology subnet so the inet addr and the P-t-P addresses are the 
same. You're not so they will be different.

Your laptop can't connect to the server

Again in my case
[root nogs ~]#  ping -c1 192.168.133.1
PING 192.168.133.1 (192.168.133.1) 56(84) bytes of data.
64 bytes from 192.168.133.1: icmp_seq=1 ttl=64 time=53.8 ms

Pinging the server from itself gives "Destination Host Unreachable"
That's strange. In my case
[root vpnexternal ~]# ping -c1 192.168.133.1
PING 192.168.133.1 (192.168.133.1) 56(84) bytes of data.
64 bytes from 192.168.133.1: icmp_seq=1 ttl=64 time=0.028 ms

Have you a firewall on the server blocking pings or the openvpn port 1194.

I'd guess the problem is with the setup on the server.

Can you send on the config files for the server and client minus all the 
comments ;-)
