When I enable telnet on openVPN (windows) using this parameter management localhost 25333, I am not able to access the clients through their virtual IPs anymore. At the same time, when I disable this parameter management localhost 25333 in server config, then clients become accessible through virtual IPs but telnet management console is lost.

Please see the attached server and client config file below.

Server Configuration File:

proto tcp
dev tun
ca ca.crt
cert server.crt
