Is anyone currently running openvpn 2.0 on an OSX box?  I'm wrestling
with it right now (see notes below).  And yes, to tunnel to my ISP I
need to run 2.0beta and not 1.6.  Thanks for any ideas and/or

I just installed the new tunnel drivers for OSX 10.3
(http://www-user.rhrk.uni-kl.de/~nissler/tuntap/), then installed
openvpn2 using opendarwin.  I run this command:

./openvpn --config /etc/openvpn/jtan.ovpn

...and end up with the following error:

Permissions look fine on the certificate file and the config file comes
straight from my ISP so it should be good.  I'm using the directions
from http://www.jtan.com/faq/vpnfaq.html.
