iptables: Unknown error 18446744073709551615

When trying to run an OpenVPN Server and you receive the following error:

iptables: Unknown error 18446744073709551615

Here is a work around for the above error.

Run this inside your OpenVZ Container.

iptables -t nat -A POSTROUTING -s -o venet0 -j SNAT --to-source SERVER_IP_HERE
/etc/init.d/iptables save
/etc/init.d/iptables restart

(Replace SERVER_IP_HERE with your servers IP address)

Then the error should no longer persist.
