Hi guys

I have a problem connecting to an openVPN server, I tried it few times with
KVpnc, but the log is all the time like that:

debug: Preserving network environment
debug: openvpn: /usr/sbin/openvpn
debug: Support for TUN/TAP found (compiled into kernel or kernel module
already loaded).
debug: CmdBeforeConnectScript:
debug: Executing command before connect: --script-security
debug: "CmdBeforeConnectScript" started.

debug: Disconnect requested, status connecting
debug: Killing process while connecting.
success: Successful connect try canceled.
error: OpenvpnManagementHandler: The remote host closed the connection
debug: Disconnected.

After a while I just disconnected.
I also tried it with KNetworkmanager, but there it tries to connect and stops
at some time.
Is there a log where I can find the problem, why it didn't connect?

Running on openSUSE 11.1 M6 and De 4.3.1
