I successively configured my Openvpn server.ovpn and client.ovpn files and all other required certification files. And I could load them on my server computer. Please first have a look on my files:
And I make sure that my corresponding configuration on client file is correct.
I could load the server.ovpn in the right way:
Now is the problem:

I have a simple guess that it is about the permission on specific port on the server computer, but on the third picture, it looks like the 1194 port is listening to the connection from the outside world.
The server and client computer actually in the same room so the ping should be very good, around 3ms shown in the result of "ping serverIpaddress". However, it could not connect to the port 1194 and show me that here is some refuse condition on the server computer side. The server computer is on win xp. Do I need add the 1194 port as an exception on the firewall>
Thanks lot at first.
