    340342== Known issues #gui-knownissues
    341343
    342  * Currently the OpenVPN-GUI will not run a `--server` config file because the option `--pull-filter` is added to the config by the GUI.
    343 
    344   To workaround this you must run the OpenVPN-GUI as a computer administrator.
    345 
    346   See: #1164
    347 
    348   A fix for this has been applied and will be available in Openvpn v2.4.9
    349
