[opensuse-security] OpenVPN Bridging setup on SUSE Linux

Hi List,

From before I have a OpenVPN server running in route mode on a Win2kTS server on a SO network (a single network, no subnetting), with working client connections from both Windows and Linux external clients.

With a new production SLES10/OES2 server, I wish to setup OpenVPN in Bridge mode on this new server to reach the whole network instead. First however, I wish to test this setup on a openSUSE 10.3 workstation, until the OpenVPN Bridge works.

My hope is that existing client certifates and by modifying the config files generated on Windows also can be used for OpenVPN server on Suse Linux.

On openvpn.net there a general Linux OpenVPN Howto and a Ethernet Bridging documents. After installing the openvpn-2.0.9-44 and bridge-utils-1.2-53 packages on openSUSE, there is also some documentations and sample files located in /usr/share/doc/packages/openvpn and /usr/share/doc/packages/bridge-utils.

I wonder if there may exist additional useful Suse Linux specific documents (cool tips, quick start guide) for this setup job, which also includes neccessary Firewall setup (port, tap0 and br0)?

As I'm not proficient neihter with OpenVPN nor the Firewall, all hints or issues to be aware of are welcome to get this painless working ;)
