Client-to-Client OpenVPN communication on IPCop

I am trying to allow client to client connections over our IPCop OpenVPN server. I have set the "CLIENTTOCLIENT" setting to "on" in the settings file, but I'm seeing client to client connection attempts refused in the IPCop firewall logs on the OpenVPN-RW interface.

There doesn't seem to be any way to add a firewall rule with both source and destination interfaces the same ("OpenVPN-RW"). Do I need to add a rule for this using the iptables command? If so, what?

Is there anything else we need to do?

Normally, client-to-client setting is off to gain more control using iptables. If the setting is on, OpenVPN will take care of forwarding and iptables can't control them any more.
