I am using Ubuntu and I'm trying to establish a vpn-connection to an Endian server, which seems to be based on openvpn.
I have installed openvpn and connected to the server, using the following command:
sudo openvpn --client --pull --comp-lzo --nobind --dev tap0 --ca /home/tkn/efw.pem --auth-user-pass --remote vpn.domain.tld 1194
The above was suggested in the FAQ for Endian-vpn.
It appears to be working, since I get the following output:
Mon Aug 24 20:58:00 2009 OpenVPN 2.1_rc11 i486-pc-linux-gnu [SSL] [LZO2] [EPOLL] [PKCS11] built on Mar 9 2009 Enter Auth Username:tkn Enter Auth Password: Mon Aug 24 20:58:05 2009 WARNING: No server certificate verification method has been enabled.

However, if I open my browser and go to
http://www.whatsmyip.org/, I get my own IP - not the remote network. Also, my network manager doesn't list the
tap0 device. It's there if I select "edit connections", but I can't select it from the main dropdown.
What am I missing?
