Wrong config with tap/bridge device and openvpn in RC3



  • I think there is a bug with the tap config in pfsense RC3.
    If I setup the tap device I don't need a "Tunnel Network" and this option in the openvpn config is wrong:
    "server 10.0.8.0 255.255.255.0"

    Right is:
    server-bridge <gateway of="" bridge="" interface="" lan=""><netmask><pool-start><pool-end>For example:
    Interface LAN 192.168.0.1/24
    DHCP Server LAN range: 192.168.0.2 - 192.168.0.100

    OpenVPN Server config:
    server-bridge 192.168.0.1 255.255.255.0 192.168.0.101 192.168.0.150

    http://openvpn.net/index.php/open-source/documentation/miscellaneous/76-ethernet-bridging.html</pool-end></pool-start></netmask></gateway>



  • server-bridge only expands into server and another two options.
    In fact, for bridging site to site, server is the right option.
    Server-bridge only makes sense for bridging clients and giving them IPs.

    That is what I want, get a IP address of the LAN with my openvpn connection.
