I've tested this with a Debian server (lenny) and Ubuntu client (Karmic)
and it works out of the box.


One thing, and I guess this requires modifications in
network-manager-openvpn: It also works, BUT ignores "push
route-ipv6-gateway" and "push route-ipv6 ...." (obviously routes pushed
from the server) entirely.

The ipv6 address will however be configured without glitch.

Kind regards,
