Yes.

Doug didn't use bridging--he used routing with tap devices.

Bridging is a little simpler. Once you've bridged the gateway on the
LAN, all you need to do is give the road warriors a valid address on the
LAN. If you're running a DHCP server, you can even configure this to
assign addresses to the road warriors when they connect--just follow the
How-to to prevent DHCP from giving these interfaces a default gateway,
because doing so will override the real default gateway on the client,
cutting off the connection!
