How does OpenVPN Linux server issues IP and netmask to OpenVPN clients on Windows XP
I am new to OpenVPN professional setup.
I am trying to connect my OpenVPN Windows XP remote clients to my network area through OpenVPN server running RHEL5. All clients at work are running Windows XP. The gateway of work area has local IP 10.27.22.101 and netmask 255.255.255.0. It has live IP 220.127.116.11 and netmask 255.255.255.0.
I want my client to get IP address in range of 10.27.22.75 to 10.27.22.100 and all netmask as 255.255.255.0. I believe this is not possible so I will accept if my clients will get IP range of 10.27.22.0/255.255.255.0 network. I am getting netmask as 255.255.255.252 and no gateway on my clients. WHAT CAN BE THE REASON FOR THIS AND SOLUTION FOR THIS?
The configurations are:
server 10.27.22.0 255.255.255.0
push "route 10.17.22.0 255.255.255.0"
keepalive 10 120
remote 18.104.22.168 1194
Thanks in advance.
