Dear all,

In my company we use a SLES11 SP1 x86_64 box to provide all network
service.

I'm struggling to install openvpn in bridged mode.
I use a Windows 7 client.

My network configuration:
- LAN range : 192.168.10.x mask 255.255.255.0
- VPN range 10.8.0.x mask 255.255.255.0
- server : LAN IP 192.168.10.6, VPN IP : 10.8.0.4
- client VPN IP 10.8.0.50

both ends of the tunnel connect (the client icon turns green), but:
- from the client I could not ping the server neither the VPN IP
address nor the LAN ip address:
ping 10.8.0.4 fails
ping 192.168.10.6 fails
ping 10.8.0.50 succeed

- from the server I could not ping the local VPN ip
ping 10.8.0.4 fails
ping 10.8.0.50 fails
ping 192.168.10.6 succeed

I used the scripts bridge_start and bridge_stop provided in the SLES
distrib : :/usr/share/doc/packages/openvpn/sample-scripts
I configured the iptables as described in openvpn web site : 'Ethernet
Bridging'
(http://www.openvpn.net/index.php/ope...bridging.html:)
iptables -A INPUT -i tap0 -j ACCEPT
iptables -A INPUT -i br0 -j ACCEPT
iptables -A FORWARD -i br0 -j ACCEPT

Because on the the server side I could not ping its VPN end, I think it
is a routing problem.
Any idea of were to dig?

regards,
Manuel
