Sorry for the waste of bandwidth, but I have decided, rather than trying to figure out this weird anomaly, I would just install the open VPN service on a machine on the inside of my network rather than on the gateway machine.  Everything is working fine now but now when I reboot the gateway, my laptop does not seem to re-acquire the connection once the gateway comes back online.  Is there some sort of setting that I can put in the config file to tell my laptop vpn to retry connections if it is broken on a regular basis?  Curiously, my laptop does not seem to recognize that the connection went down.  Any help with this would be appreciated.  Thanks.

Ok, I have been trying to figure out what this issue could be for some time now and I have not been able to come up with much.  I run Open VPN on a W2K3 gateway machine that is running Winroute Pro for the firewall.  Here is my issue.  If I run the Open-VPN setup on the machine I can establish a connection with from a remote client with no problems.   The problem I have is whenever I have to reboot my machine.  On every reboot, I run into an issue that I can not re-establish a VPN tunnel until I re-install the Open-VPN package on that machine.  I just re-run everything the adapter gets reinstalled with the same config information that I had previously and viola.  I have tried making the Winroute service dependent on the Open VPN service but that has not seemed to work.  Any ideas?
