Angry fedora 14, openvpn disconnect automatically after login, please help !!!!!


Hello there,

i'm using openvpn under linux OS which is Fedora Core 14,

in the folder "/etc/openvpn" i put 5 files which belongs to the network server that i should connect to, files are :

two files with the extension ".crt"
two files with the extension ".key"
one file with the extension ".conf"

now, when i issue the following command (as root) :
Code:
/etc/init.d/openvpn start
it asks for my username & password to the network server, & after i entered the required authentication informations, i successfully logined, but i get disconnected automatically after two or three seconds ,,

some information that can help :

- i connect to the network without any disconnection or problems under windows
- i use openvpn version "openvpn-2.1.1-2.fc13.i686"
- there was a bug in my OS "Fedora core 14" which is that i cannt activate or deactivate any ethernet cards, which solved by disabling NetworkManager in all run levels
- i disabled iptables
- i disabled selinux
- i got this error in /var/log/messages file when i disconnect from the openvpn network "

Jan 15 21:45:15 ViRuS openvpn[4143]: script failed: could not execute external program
Jan 15 21:45:15 ViRuS openvpn[4143]: Exiting
Jan 15 21:45:15 ViRuS avahi-daemon[1494]: Withdrawing workstation service for tun0.

- i couldnt find the file called "/etc/openvpn/update-resolv-conf"

what is the problem or the solution that will let me didnt automatically disconnected from openvpn network after i successfully login ???

any help will be appretiated,,

my best regards,,,

Did this work on the previous setup? Did you change anything in your /etc/openvpn/whatever.conf? I would look in there for something along the lines of 'update-resolv-conf'. IF you see something in your conf file that has 'update-resolv-conf' comment it out with # and try restarting the service. 'service openvpn restart' I dont have anything for update-resolv-conf in my conf file..
