OpenVPN client on Windows : config problem


EDIT : See My Second Post For New Information


I have enabled OpenVPN-server on my Endian firewall.

I downloaded the OpenVPN client for windows.

I have created jonas.ovpn in C:\Program Files\OpenVPN\config :

Code:
remote ip_endian
tls-client
dev tap
ifconfig 192.168.3.123 255.255.255.0
ca ca.crt
cert client.crt
key client.key
ping 10
verb 1
mute 10
comp-lzo
I do start > programs > openvpn > add new tap-win32

I downloaded from the Endian-server an endian.pem file.
I rename this to client.crt and put it in OpenVPN\config.

I do start > programs > openvpn > generate static openvpn key
I rename this file to client.key.

When I launch the OpenVPN GUI and I right-click to the icon I have the option : proxy settings | about | exit.

Can someone advice me please ??

Authentication type is PSK.

If you right click on the config, does it give you the option to "Start OpenVPN on this config file"?

I now have a ClarkConnect-server running as OpenVPN-server. It auto-generates the necessary files to place in the config-directory.

I'm trying with a user I created on my ClarkConnect samba PDC.

The following files are in C:\Program Files\OpenVPN\config :
ca-cert.pem
client-user-cert.pem
client-user-key.pem

When I right-click the config-folder I do not get the option to start OpenVPN...
I'm still not getting OpenVPN to work...
