I have 1 dedicated server located in the UK with a static IP running windows server 2003. I have installed OpenVPN onto this machine with the following server.ovpn:
ifconfig 10.8.0.1 10.8.0.2
On my client machine (windows xp) I have also installed OpenVPN and set the client.ovpn as follows:
ifconfig 10.8.0.2 10.8.0.1
On the server I select CONNECT from the tray icon for OpenVPN...and it connects but the TAP-32 adapter is in a constant state of "Aquiring a network address"
On the client I select CONNECT as above, and it all connects and I get an IP on 10.8.0.2
When I open internet explorer/firefox on the client machine I am not getting the VPN ip... I am getting my local ISP ip...
Why is the TAP adapter on the server not getting an IP???? And is this the reason my client is not getting the right IP etc??? Where have I gone wrong?
