http://serverfault.com – The server and client can ping themselves but not each other. I have OpenVPN running on Windows 2008 Server and Windows 7. The computers connect just fine, the server gets 10.8.0.1 with a gateway of 10.8.0.2 and the client gets 10.8.0.10 with a gateway of 10.8.0.9. It's in tunnel mode. The server and client are also on the same LAN at the moment. I don't know if this is connected, but during this problem, the server VPN network adapter was labeled Unidentified Network. I added 0.0.0.0 mask 0.0.0.0 10.8.0.2 to the routing table as per this answer. That fixed the server. The client is no (HowTos)
