[Openvpn-devel] Openvpn 2.0 TAP installation on WindowsXP

Hello Group,

I recently downloaded the OpenVPN 2.0 from the openvpn site and I
wanted to setup a TAP device in multi-client fashion on a Windows XP
box with SP2. As mentioned in the openvpn site, I selected the tap
interface ( tap0 ) and the ethernet adaptor and bridged it. Also, I
assigned the IP address and subnet of the ethernet adaptor to the
bidge interface.

Now, if I connect more than one client to the server I get connection
reset problem in few seconds just after the connection is extablished.
I took the sample conf files from the sample-config-files folder.

server TAP conf file:

port 1194
proto tcp
dev tap
ca sample-keys/tmp-ca.crt
cert sample-keys/server.crt
key sample-keys/server.key  
dh sample-keys/dh1024.pem

client conf file:

dev tap
proto tcp
remote 1194
ca sample-keys/tmp-ca.crt
cert sample-keys/client.crt
key sample-keys/client.key

In the above case is the XP machine on which the TAP
server is installed.

Also, I tried to create more TAP adapters and created a bridge
assuming that openvpn might require a pool of ceated TAP adapters.
Even in this case I got "connection reset problem" just few minutes
after the client gets connected the server.

Am I missing any important setting in the conf file ?

Thanks in advance
