OpenVPN on IPCop


I have installed Zerina OpenVPN on IPCop to allow me to access our network in the office. However, I can't understand what are these error messages:

CP/UDP: Incoming packet rejected from[2], expected peer address: (allow this incoming source address/port by removing --remote or adding --float)
I have installed OpenVPN on IPCop before but only with two zones (Green and Red). Now I have all the four zones and its not working anymore. Hope someone have encountered this already and can help me on this. Thanks.

Isn't possible to connect from blue network to green using VPN? If I need to alter some lines on my openvpn configuration, please let me know. I just need to connect the blue network to the
