openvpn segmentation fault

I installed the openvpn package via apt in order to try and get my readnas NV+ 4.1.10 going with new vpn account.

nas:/etc/openvpn# cat client.conf
client
dev tun
proto udp
remote swiss.privateinternetaccess.com 1194
resolv-retry infinite
nobind
persist-key
persist-tun
ca ca.crt
tls-client
remote-cert-tls server
auth-user-pass
comp-lzo
verb 1
reneg-sec 0

when starting:

nas:/etc/openvpn# openvpn client.conf
Options error: Unrecognized option or missing parameter(s) in client.conf:11: remote-cert-tls (2.0)
Use --help for more information.

If I # out "remote-cert-tls server" and then run I get:

nas:/etc/openvpn# openvpn client.conf

Any ideas on how to resolve this one ?

Re: openvpn segmentation fault

Did you ever fix this? I am having the same problem and PIA weren't able to help get it working - instead they tried to encourage me to buy a new router which supports a custom firmware which supports OpenVPN.
