Bridging using OpenVPN
Posted on 2006-06-14
I need some help with creating a bridge using OpenVPN.
I am running the server side behind ISA on a windows XP box and the client on a wireless networked laptop, again with XP. I have created tunnels successfully and have been able to ping the server inside the ISA firewall.
Now I am trying to bridge the connection (need to bridge to allow broadcast traffic to reach the client). Looking at the status of OpenVPN on client and server, the client seems to connect to the server, but the connection is reset with the message:-
(On the client status monitor)
SIGUSR1[soft,connection reset] received, process restarting
(On the server status monitor)
SIGUSR1[soft,connection reset] received, clent instance restarting
I have included the .ovpn files below.
key "C:\\...\\C0051XP.key" # This file should be kept secret
server-bridge 10.0.0.9 255.255.255.0 10.0.0.55 10.0.0.57
keepalive 10 120
