Question openvpn over pppoe

Hi there,
I have an ADSL that connects to the internet through pppoe.
Now I want to setup a VPN connection with openvpn.

The connection is made , I checked both the server/client logs of openvpn.
But I have no route through the tunnel.

In client , this is the ifconfig output :

eth0      Link encap:Ethernet  HWaddr 00:11:95:8c:07:92
          inet addr:  Bcast:  Mask:

ppp0      Link encap:Point-to-Point Protocol
          inet addr:  P-t-P:  Mask:

tun0      Link encap:UNSPEC  HWaddr 00-00-00-00-00-00-00-00-00-00-00-00-00-00-00-00
          inet addr:  P-t-P:  Mask:
And the route output is :

Destination     Gateway         Genmask         Flags Metric Ref    Use Iface
arsham-laptop.l *      UH    0      0        0 tun0   *      UH    0      0        0 ppp0     arsham-laptop.l   UG    0      0        0 tun0     *        U     0      0        0 eth0
link-local      *          U     1000   0        0 eth0
default         *              U     0      0        0 ppp0
How can I manage to get the tunnel work?

your local-ip address must not be the same subnet as tun0.
if your local-ip is
then assign your tun0 ip to


openvpn, pppoe, vpn
