Re: [Openvpn-users] need help about configuration

Title: [Openvpn-users] need help about configuration
What you need is a simple TAP mode conncection.
Your friends must install and start OpenVPN client.
You must install and setup OpenVPM server.
Do not bridge the physical and TAP device on any PC !
Here is a config for the server :
mode server
proto udp
port 1194 # change if blocked by ISP/firewall/whoever
dev tap
#detect connection problems and reconnect
ping 10
ping-restart 60
# encryption would be a waste of time for games ...
cypher none
### end of server config ###
client config :
remote your.servers.public.address 1194
dev tap
ping 10
ping-restart 60
cypher none
#### end of client config ###
There might be some finetuning needed, but otherwise this is it.

Subject: [Openvpn-users] need help about configuration

hi i have to know something,

i have several friends, and we want to play lan games over internet.
4 of my friend is living in same apartment and they are sharing a high
speed connection.
also they have trouble about opening ports, i tell them how but our
attempts was unsuccessful.

so they can connect my computer over any port, but i can't connect to them.

question is: is it possible to tunnel over an alive connection from them
to me? so they will not need to open any port and i will open 4 ports, and
they will connect me from these ports. then openvpn will tunnel connection
over this connection like it was an lan connection.

so if openvpn is not capable of doing this, can you give me some
suggestions about a project that can do this job?

also i am trying to understand and looking for simple tun/tap drivers, so
i need know how it will inform my user level program when OS trying to
send a packet over this driver and how can inject my received packets to
this virtual ethernet, if you know any tutorials or documents about this
please help

OS: windows xp sp 2

thanks for any help
have a nice day
