OS X OpenVPN (Tunnelblick) & Tomato

    When I connect my mac to my tomato openvpn, I keep getting errors like:

    write to TUN/TAP : Input/output error (code=5)

    repeated over and over, no matter whether I start the connection in Tunnelblick or start openvpn directly from the command line with a minimum number of arguments.

    It looks like the problem discussed here - http://code.google.com/p/tunnelblick/issues/detail?id=73 - which worries me, as the status of that bug report is set to 'Abandoned'... So I'm wondering is this an openvpn client issue, or what?

    I set up my openvpn server and client config using this guide: http://blog.johnso.org/2009/08/how-to-setup-openvpn-in-tomato.html . The only changes I made were port number and changing udp to tcp.

    What workaround can I use to make this work?

    I'm afraid I can't address your specific problem, but generally speaking I have found Viscosity to be much more reliable and easy to use than Tunnelblick. It's not free like Tunnelblick, but is only $9 and their support forums are very helpful indeed.
