each others with the bridge or not !


You can start OpenVPN with the openvpn.sh script that gets installed in /usr/local/etc/rc.d/ when using the 1.6.0 package. If you compiled OpenVPN from source yourself you can easily create your own simple script, more information is available in the FreeBSD handbook:


You can use OpenVPN to connect networks A and B to eachother. They should be however on the same subnet to make it work without adding routes.
