Post 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 and netmask It has live IP and netmask
I want my client to get IP address in range of to and all netmask as I believe this is not possible so I will accept if my clients will get IP range of network. I am getting netmask as and no gateway on my clients. WHAT CAN BE THE REASON FOR THIS AND SOLUTION FOR THIS?

The configurations are:


port 1194
proto tcp
dev tun0
ca ca.crt
cert server.crt
key server.key
dh dh1024.pem
ifconfig-pool-persist ipp.txt
push "route"
keepalive 10 120
user nobody
group nobody
status openvpn-status.log
log openvpn.log
log-append openvpn.log
verb 5


dev tun0
proto tcp
remote 1194
resolv-retry infinite
ca c:\openvpn\ca.crt
cert c:\openvpn\client1.crt
key c:openvpn\client1.key
verb 5

Thanks in advance.
