    Default OpenVPN won't work in Backtrack 4

    Hi Backtrack Community.
    I´m kinda new to Backtrack 4 r2 and have problems to get started with OpenVPN.
    I tried a lot and searched Google and this forum for several hours but now I'm running out of ideas.

    What I did already:
    I installed OpenVPN
    Code:
    apt-get install openvpn
    I installed the OpenVPN network Manager
    Code:
    apt-get install network-manager-openvpn
    After the installation I put my config file "CA1.conf" into "/etc/openvpn/".

    Trying to start OpenVPN I typed:
    Code:
    openvpn --config CA1.conf
    Result:
    Code:
    Options error: In [CMD-LINE]:1: Error opening configuration file: CA1.conf
    Use --help for more information.
    After that Error I thought I should reboot:
    Code:
    reboot
    During the boot BT tries to connect to the VPN again and gives the following error (I missed to write it down, it's not the exact errormsg):
    Code:
    Trying to connect to virtual private network deamon(s).
    Error: Line 55: /etc/rc2.d/S16openvpn
    Script-security: Binary operator expected
    failed
    The content of "CA1.conf":
    Code:
    client
    proto udp
    auth sha1
    dev tap
    remote xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx xxxx
    #http-proxy xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx xxxx
    #socks-proxy xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx xxxx
    remote-cert-tls server
    ns-cert-type server
    ca hostca.crt
    cert clientXXXX.crt
    key clientXXXX.key
    dh hostXXXX.pem
    tls-auth hoststatic.key 1
    resolv-retry infinite
    nobind
    ping 5
    ping-restart 120
    comp-lzo
    cipher AES-256-CBC
    persist-key
    persist-tun
    route-method exe
    route-delay 2
    #script-security 2 execve
    script-security 2
    #script-security 3
    mssfix 1400
    win-sys env
    verb 4
    Now I don't know what to do anymore...
