    If I want to start OpenVPN via Plesk I get an error msg.
    In /var/log/messages I find:

    OpenVPN 2.0 i686-suse-linux [CRYPTO] [LZO] [EPOLL] built on Aug 24 2005
    openvpn[15893]: LZO compression initialized

    crw-rw-rw- 1 root root 10, 200 Mar 19 18:50 tun

    I am running Suse 9.3 and Plesk 7.5

    What is wrong?
