[Openvpn-users] Win2K and Bridging

Well, I guess I have to upgrade my domain controller if I want to use VPN w/ server-bridge, huh?

I know the articles mention WinXP, does Window 2003 Server allow bridged connections?

And here's an off the wall question.

What if I have a domain on 192.168.20.xxx. And I have some reserved addresses (not DHCP'd) that are say from 200 - 220. Why couldn't I use OpenVPN with the OpenVPN server running and serve addresses from - 216? My SERVER now has two different addresses, but on the same block. And my external clients would get standard network addresses. Wouldn't that work? Or am I crazy (a definite possibility)? There wouldn't be any IP address conflicts.

I have OpenVPN running on my domain controller (WinServer2K). Would I be better off using a cheap klunker box with XP on it for OpenVPN only and doing regular bridging? I have it running on the domain controller so that when clients log in they SEE the domain controller! (and it works pretty darn good!).
