It seems, as windows doesn't like tun because of the standard netmask 255.255.255.255 - win needs 255.255.255.252 (at least) and my linux-machine always did 255.255.255.255

Eh? A /32 network (255.255.255.255) on a non-point-to-point interface is indicating that the only machine on your current network is yourself. This is broken for the obvious reasons. (If the only system on the network is you, who's your gateway to systems on other networks? After all, the gateway needs to be on your own network).


Maybe you're using ifconfig-pool-linear on your server (and thus anticipating that the remote side supports point-to-point mode)? If that's the case, you need to leave it out when you have Windows clients connected.


What do your config files look like?
