I have the official OpenVPN for Windows installed on Win 7, latest version 2.2.2(installer signed 22 december 2011, is it still developed?) When I click the OpenVPN GUI shortcut it starts normally, without an UAC prompt. Then I tell it to connect to my VPN and it succesfully reports it is connected + assigned IP and the icon in systray is green. However when I go to an IP check site it still shows my own IP adress :S If I manually right-click the shortcut to start as admin and connect, it does show the IP of the VPN provider. Does this mean the connection it totally unencrypted when starting it normally? Then why wouldn't they have it ask for admin rights by default?
