I am trying to connect to a remote network via a VPN using OpenVPN. I don’t know if anyone uses that here. Anyway, I have installed OpenVPN and setup the config file for it, with the certificates and all the rest:
client # In case of problem using UDP connection # Uncomment the following line and comment the line "proto udp" ;proto tcp dev tun proto udp remote 123.456.789.1 1194 remote 123.456.789.1 1194 remote 123.456.789.1 1194 ;remote 123.456.789.1 1194 remote 123.456.789.1 1194 remote-random explicit-exit-notify 5 resolv-retry infinite #connect-retry-max 20 nobind persist-key persist-tun ;ping 5 ;ping-exit 30 mute-replay-warnings ca vpn.crt comp-lzo verb 3 tun-mtu 1500 tun-mtu-extra 32 mssfix 1400 key key.key cert cert.crt
When I try and connect I am getting this error at the console:
Thu Oct 15 19:29:04 2009 Options error: Unrecognized option or missing parameter(s) in [PUSH-OPTIONS]:2: topology (2.0.9)
Later then when it tries to add a route it fails with:
Thu Oct 15 19:29:04 2009 /bin/ip route add 123.456.78.0/24 via 123.456.78.9 RTNETLINK answers: No such process
Has anyone used OpenVPN and seen this error? Saw some Ubuntu posts about it but couldn’t make sense of them.
