OpenVPN and bridge mode tunnels - Wiki'fied.

After spending the last couple of days messing around with OpenVPN to work in bridge mode, I've made a wiki to help other people.

I assigned a couple of variables in /etc/rc.conf - I hope that's not against the Arch way of doing stuff. And I could use some help on my /etc/rc.d/openvpn to make it more elegant (see my note in the wiki)

Let me know if it works or doesn't work for anyone else.

. /etc/rc.conf
. /etc/rc.d/functions
I get permission errors when i run those....  :shock:  Any clue why?


My biggest problem is that arch is de-skilling me. All I have to do is type pacman -Syu everyday - where's the fun in that??

Re: OpenVPN and bridge mode tunnels - Wiki'fied.

Specifically network device variables aren't really a big deal in rc.conf, that's where they're supposed to go.  If there were any specific openvpn variables, they probably should have gone into /etc/conf.d/openvpn.

The wiki.archlinux.org/blah just redirects to wiki2.archlinux.org now.

Any chance of working up a good host to host vpn how to? I have been looking at different tunneling stuff lately, becuase I want to tunnel XDMCP. XDMCP uses UDP, so I cannot use stunned (SSL) or ssh port forwarding (SSH). Both SSL and SSH are TCP only.  :?
So, it looks like I am down to some type of vpn. I have started looking at ipsec, but haven't gotten very far yet..

I did find something interesting called "Zebedee".

That might be enough for my needs.
