openvpn - urgent help requested!

I'm just about the depart for a week in Italy,
and have set up openvpn to communicate from there
with my server at home.

I notice that ifconfig on the server gives
    inet addr:  P-t-P:  Mask:
while ifconfig on the client gives
  inet addr:  P-t-P:  Mask:
with a different P-t-P address.

Does this matter?
I see from my notes that when I last carried out this exercise
the two P-t-P addresses were the same.
(Unfortunately that was with a different server no longer with us.)

On the previous occasion both server and client were running Fedora.
Now the server is running Centos-5.3 and the client Fedora-10.

Any enlightenment gratefully received.
