Re: [Openvpn-users] problem reaching server side subnet - "tap" OK?

I have similar issue - unable to access default GW router for all those
kinds of routing setup...
My situation: I need to use customer pre-assigned virtual IP (e.g.
10.8.x.y) for each client, so I need "ccd" to config each client; I also
need "client-to-client" to let clients access each other.

The problem is: "ccd" and "client-to-client" don't work together, due to
lack of all those routing setup.

Is it possible to avoid those routing setup by using "tap" instead of
"tun" interface? Anyone tried "tap" with both "ccd" and
"client-to-client" options together?

Appreciate your comments.

This still only tells me that I have to do it, not how to do it :-(

The "default gateway" is our router (I suppose,, ?) and I
currently don't have access to it (the colleague who does is on vacation
for 2 weeks, of course *sigh*) If I want to add the routing information
to just one computer on the server side and that computer uses Windows
2000, how can I do it then?
Is it just one line or is it more?
