I have the same exact problem. I upgraded from 6.2-RELEASE to 7.0-RELEASE a while back, recompiled my installed ports, and since then I have problems with OpenVPN. I have a laptop (Windows XP SP2) at home and a desktop (FreeBSD 7.0-RELEASE) at my office in the university. I have installed Samba 3.0.28,1 on my desktop and created a share. I can access the share from anywhere within the university network. But our university network is behind a firewall which blocks all incoming connections except SSH, so I cannot access my Samba share from home. What I did was to use Putty to SSH to my desktop at office, setup and OpenVPN client/server on my laptop/desktop computers, and forward all OpenVPN connections to my desktop through the SSH connection using Putty. Then I could connect to my Samba server. It used to work before upgrading to 7.0-RELEASE, but after that I can't access my shares from home. I have confirmed that my Samba share is working fine by accessing it from another computer in the university network, so the only culprit is OpenVPN. It connects, but apparently something is wrong and I can't access my data... Any ideas?
