[Openvpn-users] OpenVPN client on Vista

Hello,

 

I keep seeing that it’s possible to run OpenVPN on Vista however I cannot get it to work on a laptop with Vista Business installed. OpenVPN 2.1_rc4 installs flawlessly and the drivers appear to install without issues as well. Initially I’ve tested this client/server setup on Windows XP and it works flawlessly.

When I connect the client on Vista (using the GUI tool) it appears to connect successfully however no traffic will route via the ‘new’ interface. When I look in the log I get the following errors:

 

NOTE: FlushIpNetTable failed on interface [18] {CE78FFF2-3B21-4A7F-931E-6D07AE329934} (status=5) : Access is denied. 

TEST ROUTES: 2/2 succeeded len=2 ret=1 a=0 u/d=up

Initialization Sequence Completed

 

Are there fixes or work arounds to this? I cannot find anything and the archives only go back to April.
