I have some problem with auth-user-pass verification.
Server: OpenVPN 2.0_rc8 (installed on yesterday, previously try 2.0_rc1)
on RedHat box
Client: OpenVPN GUI 1.0-beta26 on Win2000.

If I set SSL/TLS authentication, or use auth-user-pass auth. with
client-cert-not-required works fine.
I think set double auth. for more security (maybe somebody stole my
files...), but not work.
On the log (on server side) I see authentication failure, but client can
connect !
If I set PULL on the client side works fine, but i thing it's not too

It's a security bug ?
Any idea ?

Yes, I just learned this one :-) --auth-user-pass REQUIRES --pull on the client side. The user/pass authentication uses the push/pull channel. You don't have to push any options though.

What OpenVPN version are you using on the client side? 2.0_rc8 (2.0_rc7 too, but with a bug!) reports this option error clearly.
