Hmmmm, it looks like your Windows client is using a config other than
the one you think it is.  What version of Windows are you using and
what OpenVPN client?

Oh, and the documentation advises the use of UDP, for a number of
reasons.  Unless you have a very strong reason, I'd suggest you use
UDP instead of TCP.

                 Please keep list traffic on the list.
