[Openvpn-users] Connection listening on wrong IP

hello everybody here!

i have  a problem that i do not understand.
a vpn-server is running in tcp mode. on one machine, the config file is running fine. on another machine, exact the same config file leads to a running vpn service, but it does not get any connections. the difference netween the two machines is, that the second one has more than one NIC because it is a real server. in the config file, there i found that openvpn is listening on an ip adress that is not the one where the incoming connections will arive:

Listening for incoming TCP connection on
Socket Buffers: R=[8192->8192] S=[8192->8192]
TCPv4_SERVER link local (bound):

But i did not configure anything to define this adress, where does openvpn get it from and how can i change this behaviour?

Here is my config file:

mode server
proto tcp-server
port 1194
dev tap
dev-node TAP-VPN
dh \\\\confserver\\CA\\dh1024.pem
ca \\\\confserver\\CA\\CACertificate.crt 
cert \\\\confserver\\CA\\ServerCertificate.crt
key \\\\confserver\\CA\\ServerKey.key
crl-verify \\\\confserver\\CA\\crlist.pem
keepalive 10 60
tun-mtu 1500
tun-mtu-extra 32
verb 4
mute 30
