It sounds like you havn't really started the openvpn service. Instead you starting OpenVPN as a normal process when you click "Connect" from the GUI.

If you want to control the service (start/stop) from OpenVPN GUI, you need to change the following reg value to "1", and restart the GUI.


If you want OpenVPN to start at boot-time (with the service), goto ControlPanel->Administrative Tools->Services and configure the openvpn service to start automatically.
