Re: [Openvpn-users] How to route between subnets in different instances of the daemon?

I have the iroute and push route going OK, so if you connect to the same
instance on port 1194 net, it all works.

If you connect to the second instance on port 1195, it
doesnt. Note, I dont push the same routes on both instances, only the
routes for the nets directly connected to that instance. If I were to
push all the routes on every instance I would be banging into the
push_buffer limit again, and I may as well have everything on the same

I know that I could "just" recompile with a larger push_buffer, however
that involves the server and some client builds on Linux, no problems
there. The windows version, wtf how many bits do I have to install to
compile? Ok, I should be able to do that..... And finally, the DD-WRT
portion, where according to one, the source tree is unable to be
compiled from SVN without some major hurdles, as it appears the GPL
project is heading in a decidedly non GPL direction.

Add to that, I'm starting to see some problems with the new version of
OpenVPN working on those stupid vista laptops everyone wants.

Cheers, Mark.
