Is this 2nd box on the physical LAN or on the TAP interface (i.e. OpenVPN

If it's on the LAN, you need to setup a bridge between the TAP interface and
the LAN interface on the server (as explained in the OpenVPN docs).
If you want to setup a TAP-based set of OpenVPN clients that can see each
other then your only option is to use --client-to-client (but it kind of
defeats the benefits of TAP since it doesn't let broadcast traffic through
(I think)).
