Openvpn with Avahi



  • Hello,
    I am trying to setup openvpn with avahi.
    I am currently running 2.1-Dev build and have avahi install on both endpoints
    Traffic routes fine from one endpoint to the other, both ipv4 and ipv6 (Dual stack tunnel).
    I can connect fine and route traffic between both endpoints if I know the correct ips.

    I can not however, get avahi to work correctly. I edited the avahi.inc to enable ipv6 as both endpoints seem to prefer it for bonjour traffic, however, no dice.

    Any pointers?



  • I should note that I am running TUN not TAP.
    I have not been able to get TAP to work on this build, I assume, it is due to misconfiguration by the openvpn.inc file.

    Is TAP required to make this work?

    Last time I tried it, it "just worked" - though that was on a static/shared key tunnel and not a PKI setup.

    Also both LAN networks have to be on different subnets of course.

    Not sure what's up with tap, I'm not sure if it's even supposed to be working or not at the moment.
