You will have the same type of problem logging on to a DC as with accessing a share by its name or doing network browsing.

You will need to either make broadcast work through bridging, or setup WINS / LMHOSTS.

Otherwise your client won't be able to find out what server that is servicing the domain you are trying to logon to.

What if am not using bridging and just a standard 'dev tun' tunnel? Still set-up WINS?

Yes, WINS or manually through LMHOSTS.

And can the WINS server be sent to the clients through the openvpn config file on the server?

e.g. push "dhcp-option WINS *.*.*.*"

Yes, exactly. You probably also want to push the NodeType, controling how windows machines should resolv names. I'm using Hybrid (NBT 8) which means use WINS in first case and Broadcast if WINS fails.

push "dhcp-option NBT 8"

Thank you for the help!!
