VPN Hooray!

A happier update to my previous VPN horror, with a lot of help from krzie and Bushmills on the #openvpn channel, they were able to track down the issue.

As it turns out, an entry in my ccd client, iroute “192.168.6.0 255.255.255.0” was malformed!  The quotes around the IP & sub were breaking it, and routes werent being pushed.   I can’t count how many times I’ve re-read the same documentation over and over, completely missing this fact.  Thankfuly krzie saw this, and later pointed out openvpn should have errored & logged this, but didn’t, and he’ll open a ticket about it.  It’s nice not to feel crazy anymore, though.. I really should have noticed extra quotes.
