I am running Fedora 25 on a VPS and am having issues connecting to CS. It is authenticating, and this is the response from the server:
[root@pogo openvpn]# openvpn --config southtcp.conf

When I try to traceroute, it does not appear that any traffic is going through the tunnel. I don't know if the above response is normal, or indicative of an error, but I would appreciate any insight anyone can give. And if you need more info from me, please let me know.
