I'm almost 100% positive I can help you. I've set up many OS X machines to work with both Windows and Linux-based OpenVPN servers. However, I need to see the server config file to answer most of your questions. Can you post it? Also, have you or your partner successfully connected to the OpenVPN server from a Windows client to verify that the server is set up properly?

Subject: [Openvpn-users] Tunnelblick on Mac OS X
I have owned my Mac for all of a week, and am attempting to blindly
setup an Open VPN connection. The server side stuff has been set up by
my slightly more cluey partner, on Windows, but neither of us know
what to do with Macs. I'm using Tunnelblick 3.0. I don't really
understand what I'm doing, so imagine you're speaking to a 5 year old!
I have had many different errors in my travels and various .conf
files, but the one I can't seem to get past now is write to TUN/TAP :
Input/output error (code=5). What does this mean and how do I fix it?
