Basic Open VPN Config

I recently started helping a company that uses OpenVPN - I have never used the product and need a basic how-to on editing current config file.  It's a linux box.

My current issue - when a employee connects, it configures the route on his laptop with a subnet of 255.255.255.255 - and it can only see the linux box, instead of the entire subnet.

Main office is 10.10.10.x
Client home is 10.10.8.x

Let me know if you need more information.

Add a route on the client

route -p 10.10.10.0 255.255.255.0 <Gateway IP Address>

Yes you can use the -p (persistent) option

Which gets stored in the registry and is applied every time the system reboots.

If the VPN is not up then route will not do anything....

Here is what wound up working in my case.  The 10.8.0.13 is the VPN adapter IP.

ROUTE ADD -P 10.10.10.0 MASK 255.255.255.0 10.8.0.13 METRIC 3
