[Openvpn-users] MULTI: bad source address from client

I installed OpenVPN 2.0_rc6-1 on a client and a server (both Linux). I have
used the sample keys and sample config files (making only the small changes
necessary to make it work).

The connection is successfully established, according to the log files on
both sides and I can ping the server on Since I have enabled push
"redirect-gateway", the default gateway on the client is changed as
expected. The problem is that I cannot reach Internet sites through the
tunnel. On the server logs, the following messages keeps showing:

Mon Jan 31 02:28:15 2005 us=545288 Test-Client/ MULTI:
bad source address from client [], packet dropped

If I am understanding this correctly, the packets are reaching the server
with a source address (the client local address) when it
should be something like (the client's tunnel endpoint address).
If so, how can this happen?
By the way, /proc/sys/net/ipv4/ip_forward on the server is set to 1.
