ok im not really understanding the config files that much i could use some help.
I have both ends bridged, so we want to be able to ping each others local ip's(for games)

Note : for some reason the mailing list isnt emailing me the emails so if you could also forward the emails to gibbz1@xxxxxxxxxxx for me thanks.

Ive got 2 lans, at
-my end(server) local ip of the bridge is
-vpn ip (should the vpn even have an ip when bridged?)

-client end local ip of bridge is
-vpn ip

Now ive followed the guide here...

ive modified the scripts but hving no luck with them....

Also we have no need for this encryption as its for gamming, is it possible to get just a key and none of the other stuff, but still have master with multiple clients?

Server ------------------------ #local ip local port 5000

dev tap
;no-replay <- what is this

ca sample-keys/tmp-ca.crt
cert sample-keys/server.crt
key sample-keys/server.key
dh sample-keys/dh1024.pem
mode server

ifconfig-noexec                                  <- what does this one do


#push to clients
;push "route" <- have no idea what this is for
push "ping 10"
push "ping-restart 120"

#local keep alive
ping 10
ping-restart 120
verb 4

Client ---------------- remote <serverip> port 5000 dev tap ;dev-node tap-bridge <- this never works when enabled ping 5 secret key.txt
