i run windows 10 on one of the computers, it also has a ‘dial up’ openvpn – started from openvpn gui. it worked fine for a few days but then i started to see repeting
Route: Waiting for TUN/TAP interface to come up...
in the logs and tunnel would not get up for 20-60 seconds. and sometimes even after that the right entries were not added to the routing table.
running those two commands from cmd run as admin fixed it for me [so far]:
netsh winsock reset catalog netsh int ipv4 reset reset.log
i had to also restart the vpn tunnel
this is based on suggestion from OpenVPN’s https://community.openvpn.net/openvpn/wiki/reset-network-tcp-ip-stack
