Ifconfig: ioctl (SIOCAIFADDR): Destination address required
I have setup OpenVPN using two vkt40e both running 2.1.5 each time the OpenVPN server starts it stops again. I SSHed in and found that it was giving the following error:
ifconfig: ioctl (SIOCAIFADDR): Destination address required
I followed https://forum.pfsense.org/index.php?topic=38605.0 to setup the devices and the config files match.
Any assistance would be very much appreciated

Can you post the sanitized config files so we can see what is going on?
BTW if you changed mode from tun to tap I found that the server needs a reboot before it works correctly. Starting and stopping the service did not work, only a full reboot.
Thanks for the response BeerCan
I have tried a full reboot with no luck. :(
The end result that I am tying to achieve is a site to site VPN where clients at both sites can communicate cross site.
Here are the config files:
