Hi all,
my openvpn net worked well for long time, but yesterday, after stopping
and rebooting the server with the option "client-to-client" off and on,
the win2k clients ( and not the xp and linux clients) stopped to answer
to my ping requests.

Please note that they look for the server, and all the connection
procedure works perfect.
so I see ALL of my clients connected to my server, but the win2k doesn't
talk with the server.

I checked the log file in my server, and there is no differences between
a linux client and a win2k client.

I reached one of those, and everything seemed regular. i checked in the
command line the command "route print"
and the I've seen all my rules for my vpn.....

then I tryed to reboot the service and everything are now perfect, I
can reach this machine from my linux server now.

The problem is that almost all of this clients are far from me, and I
cannot reach them.

Is there a way to tell the server to "reset" all of my clients? all
clients are using ccd files.

This is a very worryng situation for me, because many of these clients
are many kilometers far from me....


my server conf:

;local a.b.c.d
;daemon

port 1194

;proto tcp
proto udp


;dev tap
dev tun

;dev-node MyTap


ca keys/ca.crt
cert keys/server.crt
key keys/server.key # This file should be kept secret


dh keys/dh1024.pem


;server 10.8.0.0 255.255.255.0
server 172.25.50.0 255.255.254.0
