Transparent VPN Setup

First off, my apologies if this has been asked before!
I currently have a pfSense box setup with a Static IP, and I have attempted a few of the OpenVPN guides with no success. I need to have a couple of remote clients connect through the VPN to the local subnet (192.168.8.xxx) in order to reach a server for a program. I would like local and remote clients to be handled by the same DHCP pool, and avoid a separate remote subnet - essentially making the VPN transparent. What is the best way to do this?
Thanks in advance!

With TUN? Does it even work? :o
what is your purpose here?
TAP might be the right approach, depending on what you target. You need to explain a bit more what the problem is with routing due to VPN.
If all your clients are located on same subnet, then site-to-site OpenVPN is perhaps better, or IPSec ;)

To accomplish what you're asking would involve configuring a bridged solution. But the question is what are you trying to overcome by implementing a bridged VPN solution? Routed is "better" in almost every case, so I'm curious as to why you're thinking about implementing a bridged solution.
The only reason to go bridged is if your clients need to communicate with an application that relies on broadcasts.
