So its CLI. is there a way, to read/output the Parameterstring?

Ah ... good to know, but not very intuitivly

I solved the problem, of an ever-dying ovpn process.
The Problem was the following:
As I want to use tap-Interface, I gave the IP
in the OPVN-Interface. ovpn didn't like this... I gave it

But how do I give the IP now for this Interface on the serverside?
The tap-Interface doesn't show up on the devicelist in the menu.

(I just tried, a quick hack, by deducing the index-Value of
interfaces_opt.php page, and was able to set it... I'll see,
it that survives an reboot. But one of this should be a bug)

(Update: The settings survive the reboot, but the TAP is brought
up abter an reboot with the 1st IP from the subnet )-:
