[Openvpn-users] OpenVPN as tunnel endpoint

 I am  trying to setup the following configuration:

XP machine<--> NAT-Router <--internet--> Linux/OpenVPN server

I would like access services(http,smb) running on the Linux/OpenVPN server over the vpn tunnel. These services are running on the same interface and IP address as the OpenVPN server process. There is no local sub-net behind the vpn server. I can access the server via the tunnel, but have not succeeded in firewalling the services off from the internet. I tried denying access to eth+ interfaces using iptables, but this also caused me to lose connectivity to these services over the vpn tunnel.

Is the configuration I am proposing doable? I have googled around but come up blank.

 Thanks in advance for any pointers,
