OpenVPN setup woes

Hi all,

I'm trying, without much success so far, to set up an OpenVPN server on
my Squeeze VPS.

I used the howto at
http://wiki.debian.org/openvpn%20for%20server%20and%20client as my guide.

However, it appears to be blocked by the firewall on that system:
Nov 18 11:47:52 vanderhoff kernel: Shorewall:net2fw:DROP:IN=eth0 OUT=
MAC=00:16:3e:00:00:01:fe:ff:ff:ff:ff:ff:08:00 SRC=xx.xx.xx.xx
DST=yy.yy.yy.yy LEN=42 TOS=0x00 PREC=0x00 TTL=55 ID=0 DF PROTO=UDP
SPT=58626 DPT=1194 LEN=22

(x and y refer to the server and the local address respectively)

Due to total lack of experience in configuring a firewall, I'm terrified
of breaking it, and denying myself access, or worse, letting in miscreants.

So, can anyone suggest how to proceed from here?
