Hi Andrew, Nejc, All

I just built my first FreeBSD 7.0 machine to test OpenVPN on it
It was a nice way to review/fix my OpenVPN page

I forgot to stress how important the sysctl setting is for 
net.inet.ip.forwarding

The default is disabled (0) and I to could not connect beyond the OpenVPN 
server 

I'm editing the page now to include something like this

Make sure IP Forwarding is enabled
Check it with
sysctl -a |grep net.inet.ip.f

Set it with
sysctl inet.inet.ip.forwarding=1
or
Alternatively set it by adding this to /etc/sysctl.conf
net.inet.ip.forwarding=1

I hope this helps

Take care

Steve
