Hi. I'm setting up a VPN with openVPN on a debian lenny server. I successfully installed it in the server, then created the certificates and both client (winXP) and server config files. For the client I use openVPN gui. I tested the tunnel and everything went just fine. I even can ping the openVPN server from the XP client. But that´s all. I can't ping any machine behind the openvpn server. Some facts that you may find useful to help me with this issue are:
I Hope you can help me! Thanks!

If the gateway is not the default route, then every machine behind the server will need a route back.
On one of the machines to which you are trying to connect, create a route:
route add -net 10.207.40.0 netmask 255.255.255.0 gw 192.168.0.1 up
Where 10.207.40.0 is the OpenVPN subnet allocated by your OpenVPN server and 192.168.0.1 is the LAN address of your openvpn server.
