    Default OPENVPN server directive network/netmask error

    Almost there, I'm following these directions:


    Code:
    https://en.opensuse.org/SDB:OpenVPN_Installation_and_Setup#Purpose

    When I execute
    Code:
      systemctl start openvpn@server 
    I get

    Code:
    Options error: --server directive network/netmask combination is invalid
    Use --help for more information.
    Can someone narrow down the possible errors?

    Thank you.
    Regards,

    Default Re: OPENVPN server directive network/netmask error

    Your openvpn server configuration (server.conf) has an invalid IP/netmask directive for the IP range it is handing out.

    For example this is valid;
    Code:
    server 10.8.0.0 255.255.255.0
    This is not valid:
    Code:
    server 10.8.0.0 255.255.255.255
    You need to check that the server parameter is something sensible.
