[Openvpn-users] Setting up a gamming lan

ok im trying ot setup a gamming vpn using open vpn.

Requirements
-udp/tcp broadcast on all computers
-multiple clients
-no encryption/password.

Ok im very new to openVPN im using the gui version.

So far using the sample in the install ive setup a point to point vpn, can play a game over it and see each others computer, but cant see network games(udp broadcasts).

Can somone help me set this up right. so far my .ovpn file looks like this ....



# Edit this file, and save to a .ovpn extension
# so that OpenVPN will activate it when run
# as a service.

# Change 'myremote' to be your remote host,
# or comment out to enter a listening
# server mode.
;remote myremote commented out for server mode

# Uncomment this line to use a different
# port number than the default of 5000.
port 5000

# Choose one of three protocols supported by
# OpenVPN. If left commented out, defaults
# to udp.
; proto [tcp-server | tcp-client | udp]

# You must specify one of two possible network
# protocols, 'dev tap' or 'dev tun' to be used
# on both sides of the connection. 'tap' creates
# a VPN using the ethernet protocol while 'tun'
# uses the IP protocol. You must use 'tap'
# if you are ethernet bridging or want to route
# broadcasts. 'tun' is somewhat more efficient
# but requires configuration of client software
# to not depend on broadcasts. Some platforms
# such as Solaris, OpenBSD, and Mac OS X only
# support 'tun' interfaces, so if you are
# connecting to such a platform, you must also
# use a 'tun' interface on the Windows side.

# Enable 'dev tap' or 'dev tun' but not both!
dev tap

# This is a 'dev tap' ifconfig that creates
# a virtual ethernet subnet.
# 10.3.0.1 is the local VPN IP address
# and 255.255.255.0 is the VPN subnet.
# Only define this option for 'dev tap'.
ifconfig 10.0.0.1 255.255.255.0

# This is a 'dev tun' ifconfig that creates
# a point-to-point IP link.
# 10.3.0.1 is the local VPN IP address and
# 10.3.0.2 is the remote VPN IP address.
# Only define this option for 'dev tun'.
# Make sure to include the "tun-mtu" option
# on the remote machine, but swap the order
# of the ifconfig addresses.
;tun-mtu 1500
;ifconfig 10.3.0.1 10.3.0.2

# If you have fragmentation issues or misconfigured
# routers in the path which block Path MTU discovery,
# lower the TCP MSS and internally fragment non-TCP
# protocols.
;fragment 1300
;mssfix

# If you have set up more than one TAP-Win32 adapter
# on your system, you must refer to it by name.
;dev-node my-tap

# You can generate a static OpenVPN key
# by selecting the Generate Key option
# in the start menu.
#
# You can also generate key.txt manually
# with the following command:
# openvpn --genkey --secret key.txt
#
# key must match on both ends of the connection,
# so you should generate it on one machine and
# copy it to the other over a secure medium.
# Place key.txt in the same directory as this
# config file.
secret key.txt

# Uncomment this section for a more reliable
# detection when a system loses its connection.
# For example, dial-ups or laptops that travel
# to other locations.
#
# If this section is enabled and "myremote"
# above is a dynamic DNS name (i.e. dyndns.org),
# OpenVPN will dynamically "follow" the IP
# address of "myremote" if it changes.
; ping-restart 60
; ping-timer-rem
; persist-tun
; persist-key
; resolv-retry 86400

# keep-alive ping
ping 10

# enable LZO compression
comp-lzo

# moderate verbosity
verb 4
mute 10
