[Openvpn-users] SOLUTION: Problems bridging with Red Hat 9


  • Subject: [Openvpn-users] SOLUTION: Problems bridging with Red Hat 9

With a little help from direct replies, the solution has been found.

After the 'bridge-start' script completed the network lost its route
to the gateway device.  I added the route back to the default gateway
with the following command after the 'bridge-start' script was
finished.

route add default gw 192.168.43.1

Thanks again for those that helped out!
