Then I find a RPM package from dag's repository (http://dag.wieers.com/packages/openvpn/)
Installation is correct, but when I try to launch openvpn, I got the following in /var/log/messages:

WHAT CAN I DO ???

Phil

Have you created the tun/tap device ?

If not, don't ask how to here, read the documentation. It's complete and pretty comprehensive with plenty of examples

Also, the developer's list is for ... developers, not user queries.

Regards,

Dave
