Hello Peter,

OpenVPN does not try to ping a host before connecting to it. It only uses
the port you tell it to use either with tcp or udp. Typically port 1194 and
udp but you can use any unused port you want.

You might want to review your serverconfig file and setup your firewall and
client configfiles with the same properties.

Hi all,

I'm try to setup the linux box in my office as a openvpn-server for my home
machine with partially success. I run into some ping timeout and observed 
a while that the machine in the office do not answer of pings from my home
over the internet. 

My question: Does openvpn depend on this?
