    bad blackslash usage openvpn


    helo

    I am receiving this message on my vpn gui

    Options warning: Bad backslash ('\') usage in client.ovpn:1: remember that backslashes are treated as shell-escapes and if you need to pass backslash characters as part of a Windows filename, you should use double backslashes such as "c:\\openvpn\\static.key"
    Use --help for more information.

    my client configuration.

    I can be found either 40 miles west of Chicago, in Chicago, or in a galaxy far, far away.

    Is either the client or server a Windows machine?
    Sometimes, real fast is almost as good as real time.
    Just remember, Semper Gumbi - always be flexible!
