Based on the description I found on the openvpn site, it seemed like a
bridging setup would match my needs. Anyway, I switched to a tun setup,
which seems to work fine to reach the openvpn server. For other uses (such
as accessing the internet through the vpn server's IP address), I need to
look into the right nat/routing commands some more.

If there is such a thing, I'd be happy to go over it and try a tap setup
