[Openvpn-users] Bridging and external dhcp server

With the following server config file I get a bridged connection and 
everything works as expected:

tls-server
server-bridge 123.246.222.49 255.255.255.248 123.246.222.50 123.246.222.51
dev tap0
proto udp
resolv-retry infinite
user nobody
group nobody
persist-key
persist-tun
ca /etc/openvpn/2.0/keys/ca.crt
cert /etc/openvpn/2.0/keys/server.crt
key /etc/openvpn/2.0/keys/server.key
dh /etc/openvpn/2.0/keys/dh1024.pem


Now I want to use the local dhcp server to provide addresses to clients.
Therefore I commented out the server-bridge directive.
Restarting server and client  on both sides I get an :

 Initialization Sequence Completed


Unfortunately that's it.
I would have expected to see some dhcp requests on the server, but I 
cannot see one on any interface.
So the connection does not come up.
What am I missing?
Thanks
