$ wine openvpn --dev tap0Wed Jun 15 03:29:47 2011 OpenVPN 2.2.0 Win32-MSVC++
[SSL] [LZO2] built on Apr 26 2011
Wed Jun 15 03:29:47 2011 IMPORTANT: OpenVPN's default port number is now 1194,
based on an official port number assignment by IANA.  OpenVPN 2.0-beta16 and
earlier used 5000 as the default port.
Wed Jun 15 03:29:47 2011 NOTE: OpenVPN 2.1 requires '--script-security 2' or
higher to call user-defined scripts or executables

authentication features disabled -- all data will be tunnelled as cleartext

( notes: 
a list of nonstandard 802.1x authentication protocols are used in universities
in our country, such as H3C 802.1x ,  doctorcom 802.1x , cernet 802.1x ...
Most of them has no Linux Client, and there Windows Client usually don't work
with wine, complaining "no network interface found" . Without those Client,
students can not access the Internet, that is say, students in many
universities can not connect to the Internet without windows ... 

I guess if we can make openvpn works with wine, then we could create a openvpn
server on the Linux host with server-bridge  mode, then run the openvpn client
with wine, connect to the bridge, and run the nonstandard 802.1x client with
wine, let the 802.1x authentication packet forward by the openvpn bridge, then
finally we can access the Internet without Windows... )

Really appreciate for your help!
