OpenVPN script fails

When I execute openvpn, I get the following error:

sh: /home: is a directory
Wed Jan 25 19:45:35 2006 script failed: shell command exited with error status: 126

Well, I changed the "up" section of the configuration file to:

up /etc/openvpn/server.up

instead of /home

I thought up was the directory it would route to.

So now I can ping the vpn server, but can't map to it using windows. Any ideas?
