[Openvpn-users] TAP - Connection between Windows and Linux

i tried out openvpn, which seems really be a excellent product and got a connection up & running using the tun-device from linux to linux.

It seems, as windows doesn't like tun because of the standard netmask - win needs (at least) and my linux-machine always did

so, i never go out, how i can tell openvpn using tun-adresse on netmask and i tried tap with the following:

openvpn --dev tap0 --ifconfig --route --route-gateway my-real-gateway --secret secret.key --float --daemon

at least, this works (somehow), just /sbin/route looks somehow strange:     my-real-gateway UGH   0      0        0 eth0    *      U     0      0        0 tap0     *        U     0      0        0 eth0     *          U     0      0        0 eth0
default         outside-gateway         UG    0      0        0 eth0

do you have any hints, how i can get this connection up either via tun (preferred) and a working netmask on the linux-machine or

via tap?

Thank you very much for your help
