we are runnning OpenVPN 2.1_rc11 x86_64-pc-linux-gnu on a small debian server.

And we have several employees, that use this vpn to connect to our domain from home. They are all using Windows 7 and it works fine. But one guy cannot connect (from Windows XP). For testing reasons, he setted up a VM with Windows 7 on his machine and everything worked fine in there.

The server logs are exactly the same for both tries (windows xp and windows 7) (verb level 3).

As client-software, we use openvpn-install-2.3.2-I001-x86_64. And he has exactly the same client-config file as everyone else (of course different keys).

Are there any known issues with windows xp on this matter?
