well a little addition:

I found the route table changes only 1-2 secs after the script finished. I’ve checked the bridge-start srcipt and run the commands one by one to check which command changes the route table. However if I run the script’s commands one by one finally the route table doesn’t changes! Although now the eth0 IP address disappear from the ifconfig’s reason… interesting… I got 2 different problem when I run the commands from script and one by one. J

Subject: [Openvpn-users] start-bridge script overwrites route table




I’ve tried to set up an openvpn server on a FC7 linux server in bridging mode. I’ve read the howtos and examples and so on but may be I don’t really understand the real point of it. I’ve set up everithing but the problem seems are not in the configuration files because problems starting when I start bridge-start script as it overwrites the route table and sets the default gateway to the br0 interface. Therefore every traffic which earlyer went to the ppp0 interface (which was the def gateway) and to the internet now goes to the br0 interface and doesn’t reach the internet.  Is this normal?  Could somebody pls give me some hint what did I not understand?


very thanks and

best regards
