Yes, but all the routing information needed by the client should be provided by the
server, in most cases.

I didn't phrase my question very well.

I was asking if you have created your own OpenVPN server and you're trying to use it, or
you're connection to a VPN service like NordVPN or Ironsocket or another service
provider.  I'm connecting to Ironsocket.

i see, well, i want to learn this more advanced networking for the coming cyber war! :)  (kidding)

seriously, i am a retired sw engineer want to build it from src up so i learn it by experience.

I get the feeling, based on what you've said, your configuring your own OpenVPN server, yes?

yes.  openssl is already done, i got a start on opendns, httpd, ffmpeg video transcoding,etc...
i have made some progress since beginning this journey.

If that is the case, you may want to show folks your configuration.  It seems something
may be missing.

i may have to, but gotta due my due diligence first! a lazy mind is a dull mind,... Not kidding. much...
