Re (2): OpenVPN


My understanding of openvpn is minimal.  Two 
elementary questions.

I don't understand the distinction of server and 
client.  For my tunnel, are the roles of home and 
UBC not symmetrical?

Certainly IP forwarding is required.  Shorewall 
documentation explains.

Route settings in the openvpn configuration 
should serve.  Try routing to one machine on 
the remote LAN.  Example to reach 
via the tunnel.

Simplify as much as you can!
