just a quick note: put something like this in your config file to enable the management interface:

management 127.0.0.1 2194 /etc/openvpn/management-password

and pass the relevant options in for this probe. (put your password in that named file and get your permissions right!).

I'm using OpenVPN 2.2.2 on CentOS 5 in 2012 and I needed to make a few small changes for a point-to-point link (plus a few warning message tweaks). Unified diff follows. Thank you Jamie - using the management interface is the right way to do this (my previous grep hacks were silly).
