I am running v6.1.744.001 on WinXP Pro. OpenVPN is being used to connect my home PC to my laptop at the office. The home PC listens on port 1194 (thru a router w/ port forwarding) for a connection attempt from my laptop.
This setup used to work flawlessly. I could initiate a reboot of my home PC via remote control from my laptop and after the reboot, OpenVPN would reconnect.
Currently Zonealarm is preventing connection after a reboot. Zonealarm sees all my NICs in the Trusted zone. Port 1194 is specifically opened for incoming UDP traffic and openvpn.exe is given SUPER trust level under program control.
Attempts to connect fail but Zonealarm does not alert or create a log entry. However, as soon as I shutdown Zonealarm, OpenVPN can connect. Restarting Zonealarm does not effect operation of OpenVPN until the next time that my home PC is rebooted.
Am I missing something?
