Now I have seccessful to setup the server, at least I didn't see any error
messages. But I still can't using the username and password for the client
authentication. I don't know why. when I enter the username:root it shows

Wed May 31 18:23:25 2006 OpenVPN 2.0_rc14 i686-suse-linux [SSL] [LZO] [EPOLL]
built on Mar 19 2005
Enter Auth Username:root
-bash: root: command not found

[24]+  Stopped                 openvpn --config

Is there anyone who can give me some explain about this error message?


Here is another way to test your pam is correct or not. 

[root@vpn ~]# saslauthd -a pam
[root@vpn ~]# testsaslauthd -u <username> -p <password> -s <pam service>  

where the pam service means the file under /etc/pam.d/, e.g login and so on.

I just use this command to test the login, it is strange that login didn't pass
the test.

lsfks15:/opt/openvpn/log # testsaslauthd -u root -p XXXXXXX -s login
0: NO "authentication failed"

but for the su pam service it works. 
lsfks15:/opt/openvpn/log # testsaslauthd -u root -p XXXXXX -s su
0: OK "Success."

So I change to use the 'su' as the openvpn username/password authentication in
the plugin. But unfortuntly, it still didn't work :(

Anyone has any idea? Thanks a lot.
