my problem is exactly the same as described in
multicast packets from VPN client are delivered to VPN server but
client does not see multicast packets from vpn server. Quagga on VPN
server sees the other router in "Init/DROther" state but Quagga on
client sees no neighbour.
Everything works ok with TUN adapter.
There may be problem that my server has rather old versions (RedHat9,
Kernel 2.4.24 and OpenVPN 2.0_beta7). What version of openvpn do you
use? As there are many clients on this server I am little afraid of
upgrading it but if there would be a reason..... :-)
But I still do not know if OSPF needs multicasts to work. My network is
so simple that I could easily specify both peers on the ends of the link
manually and use unicast (if OSPF supports it).
