OpenVPN Unrecognized option or missing or extra parameter

I have a .conf file which contains below information but openvpn says something is missing.

cat ./vpnconf.conf

gateway [IP]
secret [SECRET]
username [USERNAME]
password [PASSWORD]
MTU 1380

sudo openvpn --config  ./vpnconf.conf 
Options error: Unrecognized option or missing or extra parameter(s) in ./VPN_access_to_VF_lab_-_keep_confidential/copy-conf.vpn:4: gateway (2.4.4)
Use --help for more information.

What I am doing wrong?

Connecting to an OpenVPN Server

I’m still very new to understanding all this VPN / Server stuff so please bear in mind when helping.

I am trying to connect to an OpenVPN Server set up by my client.
I am wondering how to do I connect as a client to this server via the Ubuntu terminal?
All they have provided to me is the key and the WAN and LAN of their network.

Thank you.

Malformed packets for OpenVPN

I have setup OpenVPN on pfsense 2.4.5, and captured sample data for my OpenVPN traffic. However, I observed that most of packets captures for OpenVPN is malformed.

What are the possible reasons? I have placed a sample of the captures in this link for your reference. Any suggestion is helpful!
