Yes, I just learned this one :-) --auth-user-pass REQUIRES --pull on the

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.

Client: OpenVPN GUI 1.0-beta26 (last stable release), not the 2.0_rc8 on Win2000.

FYI, 1.0-beta26 is only the OpenVPN GUI version, not OpenVPN. The latest stable GUI installation package is bundled with OpenVPN 2.0-rc6, so I assume that's the one you're using.

Is not a potential security hole ?
I think, if the username/password authentication is fail, the connection must
be drop by the server.

Yes of cource. There must be something wrong in your server config or auth script. Can we see those, as well as the OpenVPN log on the server when you try to authenticate.
